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.

Player Comments:

  • "Not ideal conditions for our match tonight! Lots of rain showers before and during the start of the match, and we weren’t sure if we should carry on or not. Tommy started better with his slice working well on the wet court! I managed to work my way back in though to pinch the set. After the first set it did stop raining and we managed to produce some good tennis in the second set. Cheers Tommy :) "  -- Lee

We managed to play some good tennis though with some nice passing shots on both sides. Thanks for the match Diane and look forward to catching up again at some point :) "  -- Lee

Player Comments:

  • "A warm evening, very pleasant. The first set was decided by a hold of serve which is the 2nd night of this. How do the professionals hold serve all the time?! I got off to a better start in the second set and managed to pull ahead of Andrew. Andrew saved 2 match points at 5-1, 40-15 down, strong mind set from him. I held serve to take the 2nd set 6-2. Well played Andrew. "  -- Diane
