This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • 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. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • 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
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • 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 voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"Many thanks for the ongoing support throughout the tournament from all those involved in organising the West Ham League. I feel very honoured at being the first crowned winner so will cherish this with poignancy. The whole group deserves credit too as the high scoring showed the competitive edge and meant only outright wins would guarantee the 1st prize. The concerted push in the final weekend by all showed that most wanted to finish significantly higher than their current positions and this added to the tension and excitement of fighting to take the title. As the benchmark has been set, I will definitely be defending the title and I daresay the other players will be in contention stepping up their game to get their hands on the accolade!" 

Henry Horton

"I really enjoyed my 1st round in the West Ham Park league. . . brought back many happy memories of playing in the 80s in West Ham Park, wearing my 'Dunlop Greenflash', Taccini tennis tops, Wilson tube long tennis socks. . . wow the good days. Back then played in the 'Round Robin' & 'Prudential' tournaments. Met some great people and played some interesting games in this league," 

Derek Francois

"It was great to make new friends and play my matches against a variety of opponents. I thoroughly enjoyed it!",

Collapse AllWest Ham Park & Newham Singles - Round 34 | Thursday 1 August 2019 to Wednesday 25 September 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 28 August 2019)

Two thirds of the matches were played in the latest round of this fast-growing league, and may of them were humdingers! Thank you so much for your commitment to tennis and your support. Hope you can play through the autumn too!

Group Summary:

Wow, what a great top group! Ivan celebrated his return to the league with another group one title, but with such an active chasing pack he had to be careful not to be overtaken in the points race! Newcomer, Raunak, in second place, could easily have threatened for the top spot if he had played a couple more matches. As it is, though he tied on points with Andrew, his victory in their head-to-head earns him the silver!

  1. Ivan Georgiev 7.1 [W5, UF1] 13 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Raunak Singhal [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A brilliant debut performance from Dimitrios who played all his matches, earned his bonus points and tops the group with six excellent wins. His only defeat came at the hands of Jan. That was a great three-setter, but sadly for Jan he didn't get quite enough matches played to challenge Dimitrios at the top of the table. In a group full of good match ups, Dorin managed to secure the runner's up position.

Group Summary:

Despite being the only player to earn his bonus points in the group and despite beating the eventual group winner Keng ended up a point shy of Jeffrey's impressive total of nine points. To add salt to the wound, Nick beat Keng to deprive him of the silver! But well done to each of them and to everyone who contributed to this competitive group. Hats off to our winner this time, Jeffrey.

Group Summary:

It is tempting when the wins come fairly easily to relax and perhaps not press on to get all your matches played. So respect for newcomer Tony, who played and won all his matches and showed the kind of form that should move him quickly up the groups. Tiago, an equally impressive scheduler, was the closest of the chasing pack and earns a very creditable silver. Only four matches not played in this exemplary group.

Group Summary:

Another newcomer tops a group - well done to Alec who came through some fairly tight matches unscathed! Ynda and Vitali both won three and lost two and challenged for top spot not least because they played the extra match. Silver goes to Ynda ironically enough in part because of the point for the set won in the defeat to Viali! Only three matches not played - nicely done all!
