Fancy some competitive tennis matches in Raphael Park & Romford?

Flexible tennis is available in your local area!

Local Tennis Leagues, the UK's most popular tennis league gives you the chance to play friendly, competitive tennis matches anywhere in the local area.

The flexible league means you can choose when and where you play, meaning tennis can fit into even the busiest of lifestyles!

The fun initiative makes it easy for men and women (aged 18+) of all standards to play friendly, competitive tennis in a singles league.

Players are organised into groups, so play only people of a similar level, meaning close matches really are close by!

Everyone who completes three matches by the halfway mark is sent a free can of balls and winners get prizes, so there's more than just pride on the line!
