Local Tennis League
Calling all tennis players!
What can we expect? A big Federer backhand? A cheeky Murray chip-shot? A storming Sampras serve?
A quiet revolution is going on in grassroots tennis and you can be involved. Local Tennis Leagues run 165+ friendly, competitive tennis leagues throughout 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 just for taking part, free British Tennis Membership (meaning entry into the Wimbledon ballot) and a prize for topping your league!
The Raphael Park and Romford league is your most local league - 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 visit the Raphael Park and Romford join page here, entries to the next round close soon so be quick!

Bootcamp - Our Parks
Walking Netball Havering
We brought you Back to Netball and now we bring you the latest initiative from England Netball..............
Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.
From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.
Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.
Adult beginner table tennis sessions
Come along and learn the basics and refresh/improve your skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. Run by London Borough of Havering in partnership with Tapestry. Equipment provided.
