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!

I’m envious of your serve, that’s a real weapon. Your defensive game was on point today and you managed to get back balls that most players don’t, making me play that one extra shot.

Player Comments:

  • "A fantastic game and great to meet Isobel who is new to the league, the first set was very close with no one holding their serve and the score at 4-4 on the back of constant breaks, when Isobel finally broke the streak to make it 5-4 and went on to win the set. 2nd set was again close with some good shots from both players, a well deserved win for Isobel in her first ever match. She also give me some pointers with trying to figure out my extremely inconsistent serve which seemed to help! so if I could give her bonus points for that, I would. Welcome to the league, good luck in your other matches and I look forward to the rematch!"  -- Kev

I wasn't surprised to learn at the end that he's returning from injury and would usually be in a higher group than this, and I'm sure he'll go on to win the division now! For me it was a frustrating game as there was a clear gulf in class, which got to me by the time of the second set and turned that into a virtual walkover. I appreciated that Gaz gave me a lift back to town, too, thanks!"  -- Katy

I gave him some trouble and took the second set but whenever I pegged at back he seemed to up his game. I expect he'll give everyone else in this division a hard time."  -- Katy
