Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


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.

A lovely end to the tennis year for the Solihull league. All that remains is to wish you all the best for Christmas and the festivities and a fantastic, tennis-filled New Year. See you all again in the spring!

Group Summary:

A fantastic set of matches in this very friendly, competitive group and perhaps we aren't surprised it all came down to the wire and a great match between Vlad and Richard. Richard was bidding to make it three group wins in a row, but the match swung Vlad's way and he is our new champ! A fun end to the tennis for the year.

Player Comments:

  • "Jon was hampered by an injury which meant he couldn't serve over arm. This didn't stop a pulsating game with numerous long rallies over 2 hours. I think I would have needed an oxygen tent had it gone to a third set! Fortunately I edged the second set where there was never more than a point or two between us especially in the tie break. Thank you for the game Jon and I look forward very much to playing you again when you are fully fit. "  -- Dougald

Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt ANDRE LIMA (Oct 25) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great game, Andre is a good offensive player. Lucky for me his serve did not quite work today, allowing me to attack on his second serve. Looking forward to playing Andre again "  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt ANDRE LIMA (Oct 20) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable match against a good player. We both made several avoidable errors but the quality improved as the match went on. I look forward to a re-match at a later date. "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Blake Bolton (Oct 15) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good game tonight, although Blake could not really find his bearings on the indoors court. We played on court 2 at Tudor Grange and the lighting is not brilliant - there is plenty of light along the side lines but it is a bit dark in the middle! Blake has some very good instinctive shots and will surely progress if he starts to play more regularly. I also enjoyed the additional half an hour of non-match play we had at the end - proper work-out, cheers for that Blake!"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Dougald Weir (Oct 12) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very pleasant game on a surprisingly dry afternoon. Doug started hesitantly and made quite a few unforced errors in the first set. The second set was more disputed than the score says and only a few lucky shots handed me the sixth game and prevented Doug to tie at 3 all. "  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentDougald Weir bt Steven Tilley (Oct 12) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "An early morning game in dry and unusually still autumn conditions. Further interest was added by the numerous park runners 'circling' us! Steven showed some nice touches round the court and I enjoyed our game at a time which is not traditionally my preferred option! I look forward to playing you again Steven."  -- Dougald
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Blake Bolton (Oct 12) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game! Blake can definitely play and will continue to get better with experience. He has an excellent backhand which caused me problems today. Thanks for the game and I hope we can play again."  -- Richard

Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Steven Tilley (Oct 5) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good to see Steven in the tennis league and there is potential there, as shown in a few excellent shots. Always enjoyable to get on court to play tennis and I hope to see Steven again in the future."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Jonathan Winspeare (Sep 29) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "After Jonathan made a great start to win the first three games, I managed to get a few games won but it was far from easy. Some excellent big shots played and Jon becomes a more difficult opponent each time we play. I look forward to our next match."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentJonathan Winspeare bt Steven Tilley (Sep 28) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Glad we evaded the rain but we were still left with some very blustery conditions. None the less was an enjoyable afternoon of tennis. Look forward to playing Steven again in the future."  -- Jonathan
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Dougald Weir (Sep 26) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game against Doug as we escaped the rain. The first set was never a 6-0 on merit as several games went to deuce. In the second set, Doug produced some excellent first serves and it was a difficult set to win. Thanks to Doug for the game and I look forward to us playing again in the future."  -- Richard

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Richard Randle (Sep 21) 6-3, 5-7, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Got lucky today, Richard was recovering from a chest infection so we was not quite himself. Nevertheless it was a very good match. Richard saved three or four match balls in the second set and came back from 5-2 to 5-4 in the decider. Lucky for me he was facing the (magnificent) sun in the last game so I finally managed to wrap it up! Thanks Richard, looking forward for our next game"  -- Vlad
