Vertical Tabs

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.

Reveal CommentMarc Chan bt Sandeep Minhas (Aug 22) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely to play at Uxbridge LTC, Sandeep’s home club. Some lengthy games and points. A real work out. Never seen so many net cords in a warm up!"  -- Marc

Player Comments:

  • "Scoreline didn’t reflect some nice rallies. Zame lives in Orlando and I’d been there the week before, we’re hoping to have a hit there some time which would be great."  -- Marc
Zamir Khan bt Raj Giri (Aug 19) 7-5, 6-3
Reveal CommentBernardo Francisco Contrera Jimenez bt Sandeep Minhas (Aug 17) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Touch match as always. Bernardo just keeps the pressure on and too many unforced errors from me made it an easy first set. Second set was closer with service breaks throughout, but Bernardo was able to hold serve when needed at the crucial moment to take the set. Thanks for the match Bernardo."  -- Sandeep
Reveal CommentSandeep Minhas bt Zamir Khan (Aug 15) 3-6, 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A tough first match! Zamir had me running all over the place in the first set and although I started the set well enough, he managed to gain control of the set with his consistency and better rallying. The 2nd set continued where the 1st left off, with Zamir quickly going into a 4-1 lead. I managed to hang on in the rallies after that and slowly cut out the unforced errors to take the set. With both of us tired the 3rd set was tough, but I again managed to keep the unforced error count down, which ultimately helped me to grind out the win. Some long rallies and a very enjoyable match. Thanks Zamir!"  -- Sandeep
Reveal CommentMarc Chan bt Raj Giri (Aug 15) 6-1, 6-4

Reveal CommentHarvey Whittam bt Leon Sodeyfi (Aug 4) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a fine dry calm evening. The carpet courts were in perfect condition and no other persons were at the club so no interuptions. After the first set, flood lights were used but didn't affect either player. Played in good spirit with some great rallies often finishing with an error by either player rather than an out and out awesome winner being hit. Pleasure to have played Leon."  -- Harvey

Player Comments:

  • "First league with match with Hellinda in years and first in Slough. Felt I played well (considering she thumped me 6-1, 6-1 in a friendly two weeks ago!) and very aggressively (despite too many service errors) but Hellinda - who plays a very offensive game herself - beat me as usual!! We had to travel from Reading to Slough to complete the match as we ran out of time! Thanks for the lift to Slough, Hellinda. Lovely to play you again and all the best with your remaining fixtures."  -- Jamal
Reveal CommentJamal Ali bt Alexandru Andres (Aug 17) 7-5, 6-4
