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

"Really enjoyed playing in Group 3. I feel I've improved my game since I first joined the league a few years ago, still got a lot to learn though. Playing in Group 2 will certainly be a tough test, though I'm looking forward to it," 

Stewart Campbell

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Absolute nail-biter of a match! Neil took the first set with some brilliant net play and maintained his level throughout the second. Had to save a match point at 5-4 before inching the second set, and managed to carry the momentum through to the third. Thoroughly enjoyed it; I'm pretty knackered now, haven't had to run about that much in ages. Cheers for the match Neil, all the best with the other matches." -- Jack

Reveal CommentJack Edward bt Kevin Kelly (Jan 26) 4-6, 6-2, 6-2

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Tough match played indoors; I seem to be enjoying this scoreline lately... Started off a little rusty, and Kevin's powerful serve consolidated his one break of my service. Started to find my groundstrokes in the next two sets and clinched some important points to win in three. Along with the powerful serve, Kevin sporadically injected the ball with a lot of pace, making him a tricky and unpredictable opponent. Thanks for the game Kevin, I enjoyed it." -- Jack
Reveal CommentJack Edward bt Frank Reid (Jan 24) 4-6, 6-2, 6-2

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "The match was played in blustering, erratic winds; couple this with a set of new balls and conditions were difficult to get used to. Solid playing from Frank in the first set swept me aside as I had completely lost my groundstrokes, fortunately however, I managed to reassemble my game slightly and accustom to the winds for the last two sets. Well played Frank, thanks for a good match." -- Jack

PLAYER COMMENTS:
