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!

"​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!" 

Henry Horton

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

Federico Roa

"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

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

Group Summary:

A case of deja vu for Anthony, who once again chalked up a fantastic five wins and bonus points to take his second title on the bounce. Giuseppe also finished the round unbeaten with three victories from as many matches and claims a solid second place. Credit to Daniel who was the only player to play and complete every match.

  • "This match was nothing short than epic! Extra-long rallies, amazing saves, many winners.. we used a lot of energy and we were very tired at the end. Unfortunately Syed strings snapped towards the end of the second set so he has to adapt to the backup racket. It scould have gone either way and it has been great fun."  -- Giuseppe

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Jonathan, who finished with a formidable five wins under his belt to take the gold. Runner up Marek also had a strong round storming through the three matches he played, so could he have gone one better if he had played a few more matches? Maybe we will find out next time. Great to see the majority of players taking home a bonus prize.

Group Summary:

Ihor stole the show in this group, finishing with a 100% winning record to comfortably take pole position. James certainly got his tiebreak practice in in this round, and he reaps the rewards of winning a couple of thrillers, by sneaking into second place. Kudos to Declan who, alongside James, made it onto court for the most matches.
