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.

"It was great to make new friends and play my matches against a variety of opponents. I thoroughly enjoyed it!",

Zak Iqbal

"I really enjoyed my 1st round in the West Ham Park league. . . brought back many happy memories of playing in the 80s in West Ham Park, wearing my 'Dunlop Greenflash', Taccini tennis tops, Wilson tube long tennis socks. . . wow the good days. Back then played in the 'Round Robin' & 'Prudential' tournaments. Met some great people and played some interesting games in this league," 

Derek Francois

"Thanks a lot for organising the league was really good fun!" 

Federico Roa

"​Thank you Local Tennis Leagues for organising the leagues. I have met a lot of amazing people to play tennis with by joining the local leagues. The staff at Local Tennis Leagues have always been very polite and prompt in responding to any emails or queries that I have had. Highly recommend it for anyone at any level to join Local Tennis Leagues,"

​Nihar Baldev

"Many thanks for the ongoing support throughout the tournament from all those involved in organising the West Ham League. I feel very honoured at being the first crowned winner so will cherish this with poignancy. The whole group deserves credit too as the high scoring showed the competitive edge and meant only outright wins would guarantee the 1st prize. The concerted push in the final weekend by all showed that most wanted to finish significantly higher than their current positions and this added to the tension and excitement of fighting to take the title. As the benchmark has been set, I will definitely be defending the title and I daresay the other players will be in contention stepping up their game to get their hands on the accolade!"
