Vertical Tabs

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.

Reveal CommentKirsteen Wright bt Bran Misura (Sep 29) 7-5, 0-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great Sunday morning match for just under 2 hours. Bran has a good serve which kept me on my toes and many shots that whooshed past me with speed. I managed to get back into the third set and just scrap through the win. "  -- Kirsteen
Reveal CommentGordon Miller bt Lee Simmonds (Sep 28) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Good match with Gordon with plenty of long baselines rallies. First set was close up to 3-2 but poor serving by me helped Gordon to take the set. Second set was much better, I had the lead but was unable to close it out with most games going to deuce. Well played Gordon. "  -- Lee
Reveal CommentLee Simmonds bt Bran Misura (Sep 20) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match with Bran on a nice late summer evening. Bran hasn’t played in a while and is more used to clay court surface, despite this we still played some good points. If Bran gets back playing more then the result may be different! "  -- Lee

Player Comments:

  • "Gordon was an excellent player, well above my standard. We had a fun match though with some good rallys. It was certainly a good workout as he had me running all over the court! Well done Gordon. "  -- Kirsteen
Reveal CommentLee Simmonds bt Kirsteen Wright (Sep 9) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Fun match tonight! I had to work harder to win the second set as Kirsteen played better as the match went on. In particular, I seem to remember several passing shots whenever I came into the net! We just about managed to get the match finished in the gathering gloom and persistent drizzle. Thanks a lot Kirsteen. "  -- Lee
