From the dates above, choose your round and click on the Join By link.


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.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Collapse AllSpelthorne Parks Singles - Round 14 | Thursday 12 September 2019 to Wednesday 6 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 9 October 2019)

And that's 2019 tennis done and dusted in Spelthorne! Thank you all for playing and we do hope you can join up again in the New Year. Till then, our very best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Group Summary:

What a shame Hesham and Giancarlo didn't get their match completed, it would have been a fitting conclusion to a great group and really should have been the decider between two players who both achieve three wins in the group. As it is, bonus points tipped the group in Giancarlo's favour. A great debut performance from our champ, but well done all.

Final Rankings:

  1. Giancarlo Mattera [W3, UF1] 9 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Hesham Barr [W3, UF1] 7 RUNNER UP
