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.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

The tennis on the other hand took a while to warm up with inconsistencies on both sides in the first set. In the second set Patrick took control and finished the set strongly. The tennis was flowing at this point and the third started off well but then playing for over two hours in the hot weather had an impact. Enjoyable game, always a pleasure to play Patrick.

At 5/2 up in the second I was looking forward to lunch but Simon had other ideas, winning 5 games in a row to win the set. He came out hitting some big serves and groundstrokes in the final set but I had finally started to hit some decent ground strokes, and for once my patience paid off. Simon’s got a cracking serve and big ground strokes. If he hits these with consistency he will be an extremely dangerous opponent. Thanks for the game Simon. "  -- Graham

"Edgardo is a real gentleman, the match was played in a fair yet competitive manner with time for a chat and laugh along the way. The first set was up and down, with Edgardo deservedly taking it in the tie break. "I found some form in the second, and it looked like things could be going my way. However another back and forth encounter in the third was won by Edgardo in another tie break. This is what sport is about, 3 hours of highly competitive tennis but with 2 happy guys shaking hands at the end, albeit one slightly happier. Next time Edgardo, next time..........!!" -- Graham

Reveal CommentLee Newell bt Jon Vila (Jul 30) 6-7, 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A close match. Jon took a big early lead at 5-0 in first set with Lee not coping with Jon's topspin forehand and then held on to win tie breaker. Lee came back to win 2nd and 3rd sets. The blustery wind caused both players to have a lot of errors."  -- Lee
Reveal CommentLee Newell bt Thomas Horan (Jul 26) 6-4, 7-6

Player Comments:

  • "A very close battle on a very hot evening that Lee somehow scraped the win. With the heat both players tried to keep the points short. Lost count of the amount of aces Thomas hit with power and accuracy. Well played Thomas look forward to playing you again sometime."  -- Lee
Reveal CommentAndrew Butcher bt Ryan Newell (Jul 25) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a hot sunny (the norm these days!) evening at Eaton Park this match was very close and summed up this group where anyone seems capable of beating anyone on the day. On this day, Ryan’s serve was off the boil and his willingness to take more chances than me didn’t pay off this time. In the first set, I raced ahead to a 5-2 lead but Ryan pulled it back to 5-5 with fantastic serving and improved ground shots before I narrowly took the set. Things continued very close in the second, running with serve until 3-3 when Ryan’s untouchable serves suddenly became inconsistent again allowing me to take the break and close out the set despite many more deuce points. Could have gone the other way on another day. Cheers Ryan."  -- Andrew
Reveal CommentMartin Robson bt Mike Dixon (Jul 24) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "playing in the middle of the hottest day of the year probably wasn't the best idea, but call the courts were empty. In the end I managed to get a few more angled shots and short shots which made the difference as it was too hot to chase anything. Great game Mike and best of luck for the remaining games."  -- Martin

Player Comments:

  • "A close, enjoyable match that Lee narrowly won. Julie played some very good ground strokes with many long rallies. At 5-3 to Julie in the 2nd set this looked to be heading for a 3rd set but Lee came back to win it 7-5. "  -- Lee
Reveal CommentMartin Robson bt Jon Vila (Jul 15) 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Ignore the score, this was a tough game with a lot of good tennis, in the end I think Jon's lack of matchplaycombined with a rare patch of form for Martin to decide the match. Another day would have been a different result. Thanks for the game Jon and best of luck with the rest of the league."  -- Martin

Reveal CommentThomas Horan bt Andrew Butcher (Jul 5) 6-2, 2-6, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The first two sets reflected both players levels well but the third set was decided by smaller margins. I was fortunate enough to win the big points which made for a more lopsided looking score than Andrew deserved. Very enjoyable on a warm evening "  -- Thomas
Reveal CommentLee Newell bt Ryan Newell (Jul 4) 3-6, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A long 3 hour battle on a hot sunny morning that could have gone either way. Very little in it. Ryan played well with a lot of backspin and sidespin on both sides which was hard to get to play against with some good volleys also."  -- Lee
Reveal CommentAndrew Butcher bt Jordan Scrimshaw (Jul 1) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "If you can feel guilty about winning a match, this was the one. Played Jordan on a scorching but breezy day at Eaton Park. Jordan has improved his game since we played last year and plays with pace and heavy top spin. When his shots and serves hit the mark they were unplayable.. Fortunately for me, he had an off day and the match was decided by Jordan’s errors rather than many winners from me. There were few real rallies but a selection of some really great serves and shots from both of us. In the end greater consistency won through. Good luck with your other matches Jordan - I pity your opponent when everything clicks!"  -- Andrew

Player Comments:

  • "Inga won the first set to love before injuring her knee at the start of the 2nd. She attempted to battle on but quickly realised she might do further damage. I offered Inga crepe bandaging and ibuprofen and hoped to see her back real soon. A sad way to end a match but good to see Inga again. I told her about the upcoming tournament in Majorca in October via LTL!"  -- Victoria

Reveal CommentBeverley Hampshire bt Inga Misane (Aug 6) 6-3, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "Another match played on a scorching evening! A first set much closer than the score would suggest with many games going to deuce. However once 4-1 down to Inga in the second I felt sure we were going to a gruelling 3rd set, but somehow I managed to claw it back as Inga appeared to be fading a little. A very close and tense tiebreak to finish the second set. Thanks Inga, the first time we've played and a really tough match!"  -- Beverley
