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:

  • "Rupert had match point when he was 40-30 and 5-4 up in the 2nd. He then missed a volley at the net which got me back to duece and lead to me winning the game, set and eventually the match. Better luck next time Rupert! Thanks for a good match."  -- Falco
Reveal CommentPhil Nash bt Falco Niekoop (Apr 12) 6-2, 3-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "I would have put money on it being a 3 setter. First set I race to a 2 love lead, at 15-40 I think 3 love hear we come, then a couple of booming aces and unreturnables got Falco out of jail to 2-1. Then at 15-40 on my own serve I thought how am I not 3 love up and facing 2 all. I then reeled of some decent first serves of my own and went to 3-1, then 6-2. Second set Falco raced to 3 love. It was almost 12 straight points were it not for one double fault at 40 love. Falco levelled match 6-3. All throughout the points were pretty short and Falco often blasted winners and aces through the back fencing, sheer power, but Phil just got the better of the final set 6-2. Cheers Falco."  -- Phil

Reveal CommentPhil Nash bt Sandeep Minhas (Apr 7) 6-3, 2-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "On a cloudy overcast morning another 3 set match showing not a lot between us. Phil went into a seemingly comfortable lead at 4-1 but a 10 deuce service game won by Sandeep closed to 4-3 and could have been a momentum shift. 2nd set Sandeep went 2 love up, 4-1 up (after another 10 deuce game) and never looked like losing that 2nd set. 3rd set was tight, Phil trying to chip and charge and getting better luck playing to forehand. Phils bottle went on playing any forced back hands throughout and was lucky to get away with the match. Cheers Sandeep."  -- Phil
Reveal CommentBernardo Francisco Contrera Jimenez bt Roger Parkin (Apr 7) 6-4, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A tough match with plenty of long games. Plenty of winning volleys and good serving. Bernardo's fitness and athleticism finally coming out on top. Well played Bernardo look forward to playing you again. Rog "  -- Roger
Reveal CommentPhil Nash bt Rupert Banks (Apr 1) 6-3, 2-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "No better way to brush off the working day with an evening match. The first set went my way with a lot of hard traded rallies. 2nd set I tried to let some back hands top, a few looked quiet good but slowly it broke down and tentative chipping back took over. Rupert put some solid service games together and never let the momentum go. 3rd set I got a good start and tried to keep the rallies going running rallies down. Nice match Rupert, see you again. Phil"  -- Phil

Reveal CommentBernardo Francisco Contrera Jimenez bt Phil Nash (Mar 16) 5-7, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A really tight match, nothing short of what we expected. First set, no breaks until the 11th game when Phil took 7-5 Second set, Bernardo 3 love up then 4-3 down then 6-3 up. Final set, almost went to 6-all which would have been awkward ‘cos Phil wanted a tiebreak at 6all and Bernardo did not. But 7-5 to Bernardo final set. The elephant in the room was the gale force winds, seriously strong. For me it made for interesting rallies, I could slice a serve on the right that Bernardo had to play from inside the adjacent court. The when Bernardo hit anything to my back hand side from one end, the weight of the shot was un-real. Well played Bernardo !"  -- Phil

  • "A tough but enjoyable contest. Its what LTL is all about. Falco's power verses my cunning and guile.... we both served well in blustery conditions, with Falco's kick serve almost unplayable at times. I made some good service returns but alas not enough of them!! In the end youth overcame experience. Well played Falco. Look forward to playing again soon! Rog "  -- Roger
