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!

It was an enjoyable round, people very nice and good players. It's sometimes difficult to arrange the games, but not many problems if you keep chasing the people!

Reveal CommentToby Wadey bt Sue Eales (Aug 13) 2-6, 7-5, [10-7]

Player Comments:

  • "A great, close match which was full of drama on East Dorset’s clay. Sue had me running all over the court, with a succession of perfectly placed lobs and pinpoint shots I had no answer to. It was like playing against a brick wall - and I just couldn’t get past! I marched into a 5-1 lead in the second after rediscovering some form... but Sue came back again, drawing level at 5-5. I was sure the momentum was going against me... but I somehow managed to scrape the last two, very tight games. The light fading fast, we agreed to play a match deciding tie-break, which could have gone either way. Thanks for the match Sue - look forward to playing again soon! "  -- Toby
Reveal CommentTim Hubbard bt Toby Wadey (Aug 12) 7-6 (7-0), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Congratulations to Tim for winning the group with this decisive victory over me. The first set was very tight, with Tim rescuing a set point before giving me a sound thrashing in the tie-breaker. My constant drop shots attempts, which frustrated Tim’s play earlier in the match, were becoming decreasingly effective at the start of the second set. This and my waning fitness and increasingly inconsistent serves combined with Tim’s efficient shot-making made the rest of the match much less competitive. A good game though, and I look forward to playing again. "  -- Toby
Reveal CommentToby Wadey bt Daryl Espineli (Aug 4) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Anyone who saw us playing in the scorching 30 degree mid-afternoon heat must have thought we were mad - and they’d have been right.... I think we both felt ready to keel over by the end! This was an enjoyable contest and the fact Daryl saved countless match points in the second set at 1-5 down (including with an ace or two) before launching his comeback bid tells you far more about this encounter than the overall scoreline. Great meeting Daryl - and I hope we’re able to play again... but maybe next time we do it when there’s less chance of heat stroke! "  -- Toby
