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.

"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

"​Thank you Local Tennis Leagues for organising the leagues. I have met a lot of amazing people to play tennis with by joining the local leagues. The staff at Local Tennis Leagues have always been very polite and prompt in responding to any emails or queries that I have had. Highly recommend it for anyone at any level to join Local Tennis Leagues,"

​Nihar Baldev

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

Federico Roa

"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

"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 36 | Thursday 16 January 2020 to Wednesday 11 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 February 2020)

A good round in West Ham & Newham where players refused to let the wind put them off their tennis! A couple of no shows brought the stats down a bit but three quarters of all possible matches were played. Well done all and hope you would like to do it all again soon!

Group Summary:

'Lights actually went out when I served at love 15 and played a shot' says Winston of his match against Shivank! We don't think there was any connection, but it's a great pity they could not finish as this could have decided the group. As it is, Shivank edged the title by one point ahead of Winston, so very well done to both. We very much enjoyed Winston's comment about playing Mo - 'I look forward to it, just like Christmas. You never know what you are going to get' and there was close, quality and sporting tennis played throughout this group. Well done all.

Even Stevens now and long may our matches continue. Mo broke me in the first game of the first set and held serve to go two up. I knew I had to stick with him as once he gets away then it's nigh on impossible to catch him. Game 9 I managed to get in front and then break for the set. Today was my day but I know Mo and the next time will be just as competitive as all of our matches. Until our next eventful meeting I will just reflect on how great it is playing against Mo, win or lose. Kudos my friend."  -- Winston

Alan started well and took the first set. I fought back to level the match. The final set every time there was a break there was an immediate break back. Finally in the 11th game I managed to break Alan and serve out for the match. I say serve out but there were multiple deuces until it finally finished. Thanks again Alan for a great match and we'll definitely play each other again."  -- Winston

Group Summary:

A great round for Raj who came through 5 matches successfully, thought Ynda, Ken and Sebastian in particular made it tough for him. Along the way Raj noted how much Sebastian had improved since their last encounter - and so it proved when he finished second, just one point behind the champ! This was a well contested and generous spirited group, judging by the match commentaries. Many thanks for the sportsmanship and well played all!

At the start of the second set, I made a big change-up, switching from cap to the classic headband. Perhaps the intimidation of this move precipitated a reversal of the first set: 6-1 to me. The deciding set was tight: after four games, we each had two games in the same set for the first time: 2-2. Sebastian pushed on to build a dangerous two-game lead, after which I nervously brought it back to 4-4, but Sebastian proved mentally tough in closing the final set out 6-4. Well played!"  -- Ynda

Vitalii, who won his group last time, continues the fine form and tied on points with the champ but as Derek won the head to head (a 'Really enjoyable match with lots of nice rallies') he takes gold this time.

Player Comments:

  • "Nice hit with Maria on a Friday night. A very close first set that started with neither of us being able to hold. At 2-2, Maria held, then I did before taking the crucial third break to go 4-3 up. Saved seven break points as my last two service games went to several deuces, but I just got through with an entire game of drop shots, which had been causing Maria a lot of problems. The second set was different and I raced into a 4-0 lead behind better service games and increased spin in open court. Far from a comfortable win; Maria's serve was superb when she got the timing right, and we had a lot of fun rallies all around the court -- was left wrong-footed a few times! Thanks for the hit and best of luck for your remaining games."  -- MG

Player Comments:

  • "A great battle on a lovely, spring-like day at West Ham Park. A rusty start saw a 10-minute game with eight deuces to begin proceedings and no holds of serve through the first four games. We were both playing partially blind at one end because of the low sun, but there were still some well-constructed points and fun rallies throughout. Once I managed to hold serve from the good end of the court, I adapted my game to play to Donna's weaknesses and try to make her do most of the running while battling to survive a calf strain despite some of Donna's sneaky short shots requiring some net sprints. On another day, the scoreline could have been very different. Thanks for the hit, and best of luck with your remaining games."  -- MG

Please note, while matches tied at one set all may be completed with a matchtiebreak, singles matches completed to this shortened format, do not count toward bonus points.

Understanding the current rankings display: 
Player name, [LTA rating - if known], W - tally of wins, L - tally of  losses, UF - tally of unfinished matches] 'n' - points won (if bonus points have been won a  note to this effect is added)
