This is how it works

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • 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.
  • Players are grouped by 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 tie break 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 grouped according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Everyone in the group plays each other once during the round
  • You get one point for each set you win
  • 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 each group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winners get a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of the groups (and sometimes the top two) are promoted for the next round; those who come bottom (and sometimes the bottom two) are demoted

Thom Kearns

"Well, what can I say? Winning the group was harder than it looks but I really enjoyed it. I'm glad to  win again but the most important thing is that this league still exists. Well done, guys, well done! Thank you and all the best!!" 

Petronel Stoian

"Thank you and Nigel for taking the time and effort to run the leagues for us .. much appreciated!" 

Anand Panjabi

"The all round standard of this group is the best I have been in so far. Every match so far has been a real battle. Maybe because I (just) won the last round everyone is raising there game against me. I am enjoying it"

Ibrahim Mahdi

 "I really enjoyed the couple of rounds that I played last year; good fun!!  Thanks for organising it all,"

Peter Portway

"Everyone thinks the league's brilliant, especially the newcomers, as it's the only competitive tennis they have access to, and so close to home, so keep up the great work!"

Annette Bailey

"I'd like to say the league has been great, very efficiently run and I love being able to play people who live locally... So thanks a lot and look forward to joining the next league."

"The summer league was great fun."

"It's a brilliant league, and particularly handy as I only live 2 minutes from the Park.  There's quite a range of levels as expected, but it's fun and gives you the incentive to get out there and play.  So I'll definitely be signing up for the next one."
