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.

Player Comments:

  • "This match was good fun. A comfortable start but a few hiccups in the second (including Kenzi breaking my serve). Eventually fought off the 'end-of-week' doziness and completed the win. "  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentTomasz Ryzinski bt Aaron Van der Poll (May 23) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "This was one of my toughest matches if not in this league then perhaps even this year! Congrats to Tomasz for churning out a more consistent pattern of play his end and being a great sport, deserving his win. Great game!"  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentSimon Kay bt Michael Inns (May 23) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Unfortunately, Michael, took a tumble after the first game and banged his head. He was determined to soldier on, so I took full advantage of his potentially concussed state and raced into a 5:0 lead. At this point Michael's head seemed to clear and it got much harder. We managed to finish the game just as it was getting dark and the rain was starting. Hope you feel ok tomorrow Mike!"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentMichael Inns bt Gerald Mackenzie (May 19) 7-5, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "Kenzie and I have had some great close matches over the last year going both ways and this was another on a beautiful sunny morning by the sea. First set close again could have gone either way but, just edged it. The second set Kenzie had an injury so again just got the set after tiebreak-a pleasure as always Kenzie look forward to the next meeting"  -- Michael
Reveal CommentSimon Kay bt Rob Staggs (May 18) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A great match which swung both ways including an epic game with endless deuces."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentAaron Van der Poll bt Michael Inns (May 17) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "This was another exciting match and Michael did have many opportunities to edge ahead in the match towards the latter stages of the first set. Through in the second I managed fewer unforced errors and kept the pressure on till the finish line. Great match, and hope to see you again on court Michael! "  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentAaron Van der Poll bt Rob Staggs (May 16) 6-0, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Whoa what a thrilling match! Rob came out stressing he wasn't in form, and the bagel first set seemed to suggest that. However going into the second set I was expecting another comfortable journey, but no. Rob played tenaciously and got many tricky serves right back and kept applying pressure throughout. Rob was 2-4 up and I was started to get seriously worried, but eventually I held my nerve at 4-5 and tried to stay calm to claim the match. Good game Rob. "  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentAaron Van der Poll bt Simon Kay (May 11) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A riveting match! Both sets played were high intensity and encouraged lots of movement from both Simon and I. In the first, Roger was 4-3 up and could have easily proceeded to claim the set, though one or two cheap points won made it 4-4 where I kept my focus, got another fortunate break and then took the set. Definitely feel we need a rematch. Great match Simon. - Aaron "  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentRoger Wilkey bt Rob Staggs (May 11) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Rob has not played for some years but put up a good fight and has a unique style of play. He made some spectacular returns when I thought I had hit a winner. Thanks for the match Rob and good luck in the future."  -- Roger
Reveal CommentSimon Kay bt Roger Wilkey (May 7) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The game was played in sweltering bank holiday heat. Fortunately for me Roger had taken advantage of the weather and been out for two bike rides before the game. I took the first set 6-1, but then wilted in the heat. Roger came back strongly forcing a deuce in the final game. Thanks for a great game Roger!"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentAaron Van der Poll bt Roger Wilkey (May 4) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The weather was set for a great match. Set one kicked off promptly and the scoreboard reached 3-3 before Roger had an unfortunate accident which got the first aid kit out (only a bloody nose) however he soldiered on. An hour or so later of healthy tennis with lots of running and the fun match was concluded. Great effort Roger! "  -- Aaron
