This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "Great 3h match with Pawel today. He started strong with 3-0 and 5-3 lead, defended like a lion at 5-5 saving 2 breakpoints to close the first set 7-5. 2nd set was another battle and me being more consistent and aggressive forced couple of errors from Pawel on key points. 3rd set started with 3 consecutive break of serves and very disputed tight games. I've managed to get 5-2 up when started to rain quite intensely. We tried to finish the match asap however the balls got wet and heavy, our grips wet and courts flooded. Unfortunately for me Pawel saved 4 match points, 2 at 2-5 and 2 at 3-5 and pushed the last set to 5-4 for me and we had to stop due to unplayable conditions for 2 already soaked players. TBC on Friday morning hopefully!!!
  • "Pawel was very kind to accept to play the remainder of the match today before my holiday even the weather was gloomy and wet. He started very calm serving at 4-5 and went quickly up to 40-0, unfortunately a double fault and an unforced error complicated the game for him. After 3 deuces at my first chance to convert a match point the match ended. Thank you once again and good luck with you next 3 matches Pawel!!!" Mihai
Reveal CommentGareth Richman bt Rags Martel (Jun 7) 6-3, 4-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "An unbelievable epic encounter against Rags. The match was moved to clay due to uncertainty with the weather (which thankfully cleared after an initial short rain interval) and went on for 3 hours. The flow rocked back and forth with some hard fought rallies and excellent points. The result could have gone either and went down to a few points. Rags has a great battling spirit on court and hits a heavy and clever ball. He also has some rather fab headbands and is an ace personality. I look forward to catching up with you soon.

Player Comments:

  • "Nuno likes the way I report every match story and kindly asked me to do it, so here I am. Was a great match against the King of the Tennis League as Rags described Nuno after portraying me a Prince in waiting. Nuno consistency and aggressive top spin made the difference in the first set, closing it strongly with 6-1. 2nd set was a totally different battle where I had to switch 2 gears up and be more aggressive in order to stand a chance. I've started well with doubles breaks on Nuno's serves and got the 3-0 lead however the next 6 games were long outstanding rallies with many deuces on every game. Last game had 6 deuces and after I've saved 5 match points Nuno closed it and retain the crown! Great playing you once again Nuno!!!"  -- Mihai

Full credit to Mihai who continued to play strong and solid in the 2nd and Final sets taking the match deservedly so. Outplayed by Mihai and out of the office (on my part) on a lovely but hot day ... but respect to my opponent for that. An enjoyable battle on the hard court nonetheless.

He went up 4-2 and stayed strong at 4-5 to close it 7-5. Second set had 5 breaks in a row and was stoped at 3-2 for Rags with him to serve due to new booking rules. 2nd session on Monday started with Rags losing the first 2 games however coming back strong to 4-4. Long fought last 2 games concluded my come back 6-4 and gave us a chance to play another entertaining set. 3rd set was very disputed with Rags continuing to serve outstandingly however unforced errors made the score go 3-0, 5-1 and after him saving 4 match points the match finished 6-3."  -- Mihai

First set started with Alex playing clinical and going up 3-0 followed by long disputed games to come back in the set and a very lucky shot at 4-4 and deuce when my ball spent seconds traveling on the net and rolling on Alex's court in the end setting the break point which led to 5-4 turnaround. Second set was very disputed with 7 consecutive service breaks in the first 7 games (4-3) followed by 3 holds (5-3, 5-4, 6-4). Fantastic match Die Hard Alex and good luck with the next ones!!"  -- Mihai

Match started with Max playing very well, breaking in the first game and leading 2-0 and 3-1, however loosing his composure on the critical 8th game and conceded the set with 6-4. Second set started with very disputed first 2 games which ended in a draw 1-1 followed by Max changing the strategy and really attacking every return and living on the edge in every point, however generating more unforced errors than winners. After the match we played a complimentary set for fun and Max relaxed and won categorically the set, showing his true sportsman qualities. Good luck with your next ones!!!"  -- Mihai

Unfortunately a tired body from cricket over the weekend worked against him, and though some of the games were closer than the scoreline might suggest I was able to hold on to serve to sneak the all important break in the 6th game of each set and so eventually get the upper-hand.

The rollercoaster ride then started as Rod capitalised on my complete inability to hit a forehand, and he held out in spite of a late comeback attempt to even the match. Momentum then swung the other way again and eventually things worked out in my favour. Well played, Rod, good luck in the rest of your matches"  -- Oliver

  • "A long, tough, topsy turvy and nervy match which could have gone either way, which resulted in two very tired players. Martin destroyed me in the first set and was hitting perfect winners, so I had to switch to Brad Gilbert mode in the second and try to disrupt his rhythm. The 3rd set started i think with 6 breaks of serve before the first hold, and there were numerous games towards the end with Double-Digit-Deuces, before we eventually went to the tie break.

Reveal CommentMario Baburic bt Jacqueline Jeromson (Apr 30) 7-5, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "What a wonderful match on a beautiful day with a great opponent! It all came down to pure chance and a single shot that ended up in the net on a set ball for Jacqueline in the second set. At that time the momentum was clearly on Jacqueline's side and the third set would have been just the formality, as my gas tanks were more or less empty at that time. This time I was simply lucky ... Big congrats to you Jacqueline and hope/look forward to playing against you again! "  -- Mario
