This is how it works:

  • We have doubles and singles rounds!
  • Players/teams are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • The league is mixed sex, 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!)
  • In doubles teams may be any combination of gender
  • 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 available on the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Wimble

“I’ve really enjoyed the league. Thank you for organising the groups. Looking forward to the next round!”

Wimbledon Park Player

"I look forward to joining the fray, I'm often on the courts and there's a real buzz with fellow leaguers"

Wimbledon Park Player

"I have so enjoyed playing these matches, even when I have been badly beaten! Many many thanks for running the league"

Wimbledon Park Player

"That was a great group, the best ever. Even though I lost my last game yesterday, in the middle of it, at even stevens I was having such a great time that I thought to myself that I don't really care if I win or lose, this is just great! Lovely people and challenging, equally matched games. It was an absolute delight and has raised my game greatly. Please put me down for the next round"

David Bolton

"Thanks, I am really glad I have joined the league (will certainly be recommending it!)"

Player Comments:

  • "Long rallies (by my usual standards!), multiple deuce games and patchy performances by us both made this a very tight and exciting match. Alex, very fast atound the court sent many balls back I thought I’d seen the last of, often as winners. At the end, a few slightly over-hit balls from my opponent enabled me to wrap it up on my serve. Thanks, Alex, looking forward to another competitive encounter soon."  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "First set was nail biting stuff. We stayed on serve throughout and Peter pipped a close tiebreaker. In second and third Peter’s energy levels dropped and lost his focus, but I played to a very high level. Perhaps things would have been different, if Peter was in the right place physically. It was quite a strange turn around, and I definitely found my rythme. Thanks for the game. Hope you feel on it next time!"  -- Mitchell

Reveal CommentPaul Shackleton bt Chris Fincham (Jan 21) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Really hard fought competitive match with a lot of good, long rallies. I won’t want to be on the receiving end of Chris’s serve once he gets his eye in that’s for sure. In the end I had one of my more consistent matches and as our club coach always reminds us, matches are more often won by the player that makes the least mistakes rather than the player who hits the most winners. Looking forward to playing Chris again but I suspect the outcome will be very different."  -- Paul

Reveal CommentMatthew Dent bt Chris Fincham (Jan 13) 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Some nice aces from Chris and some good rallies to compliment the serve. But maybe too many unforced errors by Chris played a part in today’s victory for Matt... or maybe some good deep baseline shots had an impact. Well played Chris and good luck for the rest of the group. "  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentPaul Shackleton bt Alex Bloomfield (Jan 7) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Extremely competitive and hard fought match. the first set in particular resulted in the majority of games going to deuce. Alex played some fantastic passing shots which prevented me coming to the net as much as I like and as a result there were a lot of base line rallies. Without doubt the most exhausting match I have played to date and I am certainly feeling the effects the morning after. "  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "It is now 2-1 in matches between Pippa and me. Last time, in very different conditions, Pippa really got her backhand going and was unstoppable. This time we both found the damp surface tricky with fast balls skidding off low. More consistent serving and fewer wild ground strokes helped me stay ahead in the 1st but Pippa took a 4-2 lead in the 2nd, placing the ball to ensure I didn’t succumb to the flood-lit evening chill. I tried to regain the initiative with some more aggressive hitting and got on a roll though it could easily have gone to a third set with the score at 4-5. Thanks Pippa, looking forward to our next contest, hopefully in warmer, drier, lighter conditions."  -- Peter

  • "A stonkin' match that literally could have gone in Don's favour. I definitely won't mention his 5-1 lead in the second! Plenty of long rallies with neither player wanting to lose the point. I was serving twice to take the first set, but double-faults kept letting me down and led to the first tiebreak. Well played Don. I'm shattered but really enjoyed it. "  -- Maria

  • "A really enjoyable match with plenty of great rallies and volleys. Every game was closely contested, particularly the final game of the match which felt like it lasted 20 minutes and countless deuces before I finally held serve! "  -- William
Reveal CommentIan Dunn bt Jenny Hong (Dec 30) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "In all honesty there was no way I should have won the first set as Jenny was in total control until the very end of it. The second set was then all about momentum as I went to 4-0 up only for Jenny to bring it back to 5-4. Lucky for me I managed to get a few first serves in in the 10th game to get over the line. Jenny’s forehand gave me problems all match and it was a high quality game. Thanks for the game and best of luck in your remaining matches "  -- Ian

  • "Always really good fun to play with Don. His level started to crank up in the second set so I was glad to get over the line as I would have put money on Don in a third set. World class defence and great speed around the court from Don so I had to work hard for the points. Thanks Don and good luck in the rest of your matches. "  -- Ian

The second was as close right up to the final two games which I was able to win after two very long deuce games.

Once Kate began to find her rhythm I struggled to find an answer to some of the great shots she was producing especially when she got her first serve in. The second set could have gone either way, fortunately my drop shots were getting over the net which I think helped me clinch the second. Thanks again Kate!"  -- Jumaane

Player Comments:

  • "Isobel and I only appear to play when Mother Nature is in a grump... a combination of very blustery conditions with wind playing havoc with attempting regulation shots and a low sun at one end meant another cacophonous encounter between us (but not as loud as the guy a couple of courts away!!?). A very even first set which lasted an hour which could have gone either way - some thoroughly enjoyable rallies & very few double faults from either of us despite the howling winds. The second set was all about staying consistent and I was fortunate to have come through it unscathed - Great to play again and 6-0 is in no way a reflection of your skills. Both your forehand and backhand are a very powerful weapons!"  -- Javier
