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.

Player Comments:

  • "Always a treat to play at Windsor LTC. Such a great venue. We got lucky with the weather. Dry and mild. A close one with plenty of games going to deuce, scoreline didn’t reflect the match. Nice to have a beer in the clubhouse afterwards as well. Thanks Luke."  -- Marc
Reveal CommentFalco Niekoop bt Sandeep Minhas (Oct 31) 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (8-6)

Player Comments:

  • "Very tight match where Sandeep kept on playing like a champ until the very end. In both sets I broke Sandeep's serve on 5-5 and had the chance to wrap it up on my own serve. Both times Sandeep managed to break back by returning many of my serves deep onto the court which led to me making too many forced errors. The very last point was pretty epic as I sliced the ball with tons of backspin short on Sandeep's half while he was still at the baseline. Thanks Sandeep! Until a next time."  -- Falco
Reveal CommentFalco Niekoop bt Luke Beckley (Oct 30) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "We played our match under the floodlights on the beautiful outdoor poraflex courts at WLTC. The conditions were excellent and I managed to be very consistent on serve for once. Luke made some very good points at the net, but in the end I was playing a bit more solid on the fast surface. Thanks for the hospitality and the beer & tennis chat afterwards Luke! Good to see you back on the courts again."  -- Falco
Reveal CommentMarc Chan bt John Ryley (Oct 28) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "First time under lights for me at Salthill. Always a pleasure catching up with Falco. His topspin bh & fh won many points with clean winners. Falco was a double break up in the 2nd set and it appeared to be heading to a 3rd. I got lucky."  -- Marc
Reveal CommentPhil Nash bt Falco Niekoop (Oct 20) 2-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Falco was out of the blocks really quickly racing to 6-2. The second set was tight all the way, deuce in most games and plenty of 40 love games going the other way. At 5 all in the tiebreak was tense. The final set was narrowly edged in the end. Cheers Falco."  -- Phil
