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 AllTrafford Singles - Round 5 | Thursday 14 September 2017 to Wednesday 8 November 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 October 2017)

There was a clear winner in Trafford Tennis League this round, with Stephen running away with Group 1... although it could have been closer had more matches been played. Don't forget next time you can boost your points score by claiming bonus points if you schedule 3 matches before the midway point... so this is always worth doing! We hope to see you all back in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was as storming performance from Stephen to finish top of the group with a huge 12 point winning margin over runner up Simon, thanks to winning all 6 of his matches and not dropping a set. Simon was the only other player to win a match, in a generally low scoring group. Hopefully you can all get off the blocks quicker next time and earn the bonus midway points to get your campaigns off to a good start!

Final Rankings:

  1. Stephen Axford [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Simon Shaw [W1, L1] 2 RUNNER UP
  3. Christopher Nilsson [L1]
  4. David Holt [L2]
  5. Dibin Sebastian [L1]
  6. Nick Jackson [L1]
  7. Stephen Atkinson [L1]
