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.

Neil Dunlop

" I loved playing in the Southend Tennis League. I wasn't sure if the standard was going to be too much for me (I'm fat and over forty!). As it happened, I won my group and didn't drop a set. I'm probably due a hammering in the next round...but I'm ready and up for the challenge! My friend Stuart is also planning to join in the next round (July 2016)...so it'll be good to have a regular practice partner. I wish this league had been available when I was growing up...great fun/great people.",

Collapse AllSouthend Singles - Round 21 | Thursday 11 April 2019 to Wednesday 5 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 8 May 2019)

This was a fantastic round in Southend, played in a generous but fighting spirit, and with a brilliant 73% of all possible matches played. Some were fought in a downpour; some played indoor and many were epic. Please give yourselves a round of applause!

Group Summary:

Wow! What a group! Every single player got their bonus points! Many of you played all 8 available matches and the fewest matches played was 5! Matches were also played in a fantastic spirit as the many match reports showed. A fiercely competitive group was eventually topped by Paul, who was just one point ahead of Bruno, who was just one point ahead of Ogba and Ross who tied in third place. Very well done all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Paul Bundock Steel 8.1 [W6, L1] 15 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Bruno Machado 7.2 [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Ogba Ogbimi 7.2 [W5, L2] 13 includes 2 bonus points

  • "An enjoyable match with Bruno to end this league. I started strongly and although Bruno came back a little, I went onto to win it 6-4. In the second and third sets, Bruno raised his game and cut out the errors. Also, I was struggling to get any first serves in and Bruno took full advantage. Thanks for a pleasant evening of tennis and I look forward to another game in the next round."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Fascinating game to watch. John serving bombs first set. Ogba unable to read the serves and return effectively. John deservedly raced to win the set 6-3. Second set Ogba was able to make good returns on John's bullet serves! And once that was achieved Ogba raced to a 5-0 lead. However, John with guile and more push avoided the bagel! Ogba eventually closed the set 6-3. The facility was closing at 2100hrs so we could not continue third set. Looking forward to complete the game .Well poised at one set all!"  -- Ogba

Player Comments:

  • "A lovely evening for tennis at the superb Westcliff courts. some good strokes from me got myself into an early lead first set but was pegged back at 2-2 by some good forehands from John. I went on to take the set 6-2. John played much better second set and should have taken it and was really unlucky not to have set point at 5-3, 40-30. The 9th game of set 2 proving to be a big one, I managed to win the next 4 games to take the win. Fair play to John who got off holiday late last night and squeezed my game in tonight after already playing Paul and carrying a shoulder injury. Look forward to seeing you on the court again mate, hopefully injury free!"  -- Ross

Highlight in this set was a superb scintillating forehand smash to my forehand side when he pressured me out of position! What a point! Overall good quality match. 6-2 second set in the end.

To be fair I was striking the ball well but there was an aura and composure about George even whilst I was striking so well. I never really got going at 3-1 down. No surprise he took the set 6-2. Second set I had to bring regain my composure and took the set quickly at 6-3. Third set was even more impressive. I continued the momentum and seemed George to run out of gas or ideas! Anyway, well played George and hope you are fit for your remaining games"  -- Ogba

I missed a few to be in great commanding position. Anyhow, credited to Gavin he maintained his composure to win the match. I led once or twice but it wasnt a runaway lead and he always came back to control the game. However, I have to say stamina wise I am happy. To have played Reece same day as Gavin am quite happy with my fitness. Coming closer Gavin watch out!"  -- Ogba
