What can we expect? A big Federer backhand? A cheeky Murray chip-shot? A storming Serena serve?
A quiet revolution is going on in tennis and you can be involved. Local Tennis Leagues run friendly, competitive tennis leagues throughout a number of our centres in the UK.
The leagues pit similar level opponents up against each other in a round-robin format.
Entering your local tennis league gives you the chance to win a free tube of tennis balls, free British Tennis Membership (meaning entry into our own Wimbledon ballot) and a prize for topping your league! There’s more than just pride at stake!
You can play your most local league here at Better - with regular matches taking place throughout the area. You choose where you play, meaning friendly, competitive tennis really is on your doorstep! If you'd like to sign-up, please find your local league at https://localtennisleagues.com/leagues, entries to the next round close soon so be quick!
