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.

"​I must be one of your oldest players at 73 and the court seems to be getting bigger with every year that passes.  These young lads hit the ball too hard and run for ever.  Still the leagues are great fun.  Where else could I play a Frenchman, an Australian and a Latvian in the space of a couple of weeks?  I have claimed my bonus prize!"

Alan Cole

"Very friendly and comeptitive at the same time! Always a pleasure",

Herve Lagadec

"Just a quick note to thank you for organising these leagues - they are a lot of fun and you guys do a great job,"

Saverio Grazioli-Venier

"​I had a blast being part of the league. This was my first experience with playing tennis through the Winter. Back home I only played recreationally with friends during the summer. So this was a treat for me. Really appreciate that I was able to get in touch with so many other players. You made playing so available for me,"

Player Comments:

  • "The opening game started with long rallies and I knew that we were heading to a very physical match. Lots of various shots from baseline to the net were played in the first set and it was tighter than what the score says. In the second set Christian was more confident and had powerful strokes that made me run a lot. I had to fight a long last game to close the game but Christian was coming back and I could feel the game starting to slip away otherwise. Very intense and physical game!"  -- Herve
Reveal CommentHerve Lagadec bt Sebastian Anastassiou (Feb 11) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Very good match against Sebastian. Score is not reflecting the intensity of the games as in the first set Sebastian was always leading on my service games and had to get away from that situation after many deuce points. Sebastian was gradually more controlled in the second set and I had to defend a lot of points. Really pleasant game."  -- Herve

Group Summary:

Plenty of the 3 setters across the score board here showing how competitive this group was. Round of applause then for andrey, who played 6 matches and won 5 of them - using bonus points and an extra set won to pull away from Rupert in 2nd place, who also finished the round with an impressive 5 wins.

Reveal CommentAndrey Yakunin bt Nik Slingsby (Feb 21) 7-5, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The action started in straight in the 1st game with Nik breaking Andrey in the opening game. And in the 8th game Nick extended his lead with the 2nd break. But a break back and a further one at 4-5 levelled the match. A solid serving game and a 3rd break at 6-5 delivered the opening set to Andrey. The score of the 2nd set doesn't reflect what was actually happening on court: the game was much cleaner then int he 1st set with a lot less UE from both sides. A good match with interesting net approaches and lobs through out."  -- Andrey
Reveal CommentAndrey Yakunin bt George Olu (Feb 20) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The action kick started early in the match when the 2nd game saw 5 deuce points played before Andrey finally to converted a breakpoint. With good serving from both ends, break points were few to come by through out the match and conversion was what really mattered. The 7th game saw some of the best tennis of the match with George first lobbying Andrey on approach for 30-40 and then converting the first breakpoint with a precisely placed BH passing shot. Nice clean tennis with quite a bit of running from both sides."  -- Andrey
Rupert Coltart bt George Olu (Feb 20) 6-0, 6-2
Reveal CommentAndrey Yakunin bt Advait Kapadia (Feb 13) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Advait started strong keeping his serves and immediately securing a break on Andrey's 2DF. Andrey broke back in the 5 game of the set and went on to secure his hold of set 1. The 2nd set was started on a more cautious side by both players, and was producing some quality tennis and long rallies. At 30-0 in the 5th game Advait served a solid diagonal and immediately developed the pressure with a nice top spin FH cross right in the corner; Andrey reached the ball at full stretch out with a well placed drop shot to the advantage quarter; a dashing approach to the net a well placed BH short cross secured the winner for Advit in what was the best point of the match. However, a break from 40-0 followed, and there was no further change of tide."  -- Andrey
Reveal CommentAndrey Yakunin bt Paulo Weiler (Feb 13) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The match tightened up in the 5th game of the 2nd set, when Paulo broke back to level the set at 3-3. Further developing his offensive to secure a 30-0 lead on his serve, two important and long points were played with deep crosses both FH and BH from both sides with Paulo first executing a classic FH down the line and Andrey catching another passing shot, but this time on the BH, to bring the game to 40-15. An unfortunate chain of 3 consequtive UE let Andrey take another break for 4-3, placing him nicely to finish the match in the two subsequent games. A good match, with both sides commanding enough speed and reaction to recover safely most of the drop shot attempts."  -- Andrey

Group Summary:

A number of really tight games here - great stuff! Haroon steps up from 4th place in the previous round to take the runner up spot with 4 wins and no losses. However, topping his score by just 1 point is Marco, meaning the gold belongs to him this round!
