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.

  • "Do I get an extra point for beating the former (1972) Berkshire Under 14 Number One?!!" -- Tom

Reveal CommentViktor Veres bt Chris Moran (Sep 15) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "We played a very enjoyable match with some great rallies. Chris was unlucky as his strings broke in the second game. It took some time to adjust to the new racket and new balls. He did very well and we played some very close games. It was great fun."  -- Viktor
Reveal CommentViktor Veres bt Adam Moore (Sep 13) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a lovely sunny morning for Tennis although it was a bit early for Adam. He started very slowly but got into the match after a few games and we had a very physical battle till the end. As often in tennis the result doesn't reflect the quality of the game. In the second set nearly all games went to deuce and and at 2-2 we played a 15 minutes long game. All in all it was a very good game with lots of nice points and I believe we both enjoyed it. "  -- Viktor

Player Comments:
