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.

  • "Wasn't the best afternoon for tennis. Constant rain breaks until the final downpour meant we couldn't finish and we had to come off for good at 5-0 and 15-0 in the second set. Hopefully, we can finish some time in future but the weather hasn't been too helpful in this round so far!! Was an enjoyable and tight match up to that point despite the conditions."  -- Gabriel

Player Comments:

  • "One of the few nice days we've had for sometime and a really close and fun match. The fact that we couldn't finish in 2 hours was down to how many long games there were. At 5-5 and 40-30 in the 2nd set, we were within 5 minutes or so of finishing the 2nd set, either way, which would have been a good way to leave it. But the nice weather meant it wasn't to be. Hopefully, we can finish it at a later date if we can schedule our next matches at the same time. Good fun and Emanuele is a top guy to boot."  -- Gabriel
