Friendly, competitive tennis on Winchester's public courts

You are just a step away from joining our mixed-sex, singles league for men and women (aged 18+) of all standards.

Close matches, close by.

Want to Get Playing?

From the dates above, choose your round and click on the Join By link.


Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


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.

Collapse AllWinchester Singles - Round 12 | Thursday 27 June 2019 to Wednesday 21 August 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 July 2019)

A small group, and just the one this time, but all but two of the matches were played which is very good going. Thanks for your support. If you can spread the word we would be most grateful - it would be nice to have a couple of groups for the late summer, early autumn round!

Group Summary:

What a debut from Alex who powered his way to the top of the group without the loss of a set and collected his bonus points along the way. So who is going to step up to challenge him next time? In this round, Anton played one more match than Alex and equalled his number of wins which helped close the gap and earned him the runner's up slot, and Tom collected a very creditable bronze.

Final Rankings:

  1. Alex Glen [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Anton Zdziebczok [W4, L1] 8 RUNNER UP
  3. Tom Burnell 8.2 [W2, L3] 6
  4. Peter Dowson [W1, L3] 5 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Sophie Gunning [W1, L4] 5 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Louis Boeje [W1, L2] 2
