TENNISCOMETRUE

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.

"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

"Thanks a lot for organising the league was really good fun!" 

Federico Roa

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

Zak Iqbal

"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!"

Collapse AllWest Ham Park & Newham Singles - Round 22 | Thursday 1 December 2016 to Wednesday 8 February 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 4 January 2017)

This was a quieter round in West Ham, perhaps the winter weather and festive period didn't leave much time to get on the court. Thanks to everyone who got involved, we hope you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to seeing this league grow in 2017!

Group Summary:

Joe mastered the art of winning close contests as he finished victorious in hard fought matches against Vicente, Ivan and Phil - well played Joe. Two comfortable wins for Anthony gave him the runner up position, a shame we didn’t get to see a match between the top two.

Group Summary:

This group didn’t really get going as only four matches were played – please do let us know if there is anything we can do to help more tennis get played. Jonathan showed that getting on the court brings success as his two victories and set won in his match against Marek (which unfortunately couldn’t be finished) comfortably put him in pole position. Here’s to more tennis next time!
