Revision information
Provide an explanation of the changes you are making. This will help other authors understand your motivations.

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Collapse AllWaltham Forest Singles - Round 4 | Thursday 27 April 2017 to Wednesday 21 June 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 May 2017)

A quieter round than we would have liked with many players not getting into the swing of things. Remember we are always happy to help if you are struggling to get matches played. Thanks to everyone who did get involved and we hope to see you next time for much more tennis throughout the summer months.

Group Summary:

Disappointing to see only three matches played, what happened? Do remember to let us know next time if you are struggling to get matches arranged we are always happy to help. Well done to Tom for playing and winning two matches to become the new group one champ. Jack also got a victory on the board to finish in second.

Player Comments:

  • "If I ever hear the word 'Deuce' again I'll scream : ) We had to play this match over 3 days. 1 set per day. The first set lasted nearly 1hr 30mins. We lost count of the number of Deuces. It was very evenly matched. Some great rallys. I was glad we finished it as I don't think I could have played another game : ) The second set again was a closely fought match which Maria eventually won with a lovely cross court shot. I thought I had the third set easily when 5-1 up but Maria fought back well to get to 4-5 before I finished it. Overall a really great match between two pretty evenly matched players. Thanks Maria.
