What Leagues We Offer

Summer Leagues

For Summer 2019 we have 16 Leagues with mainly six teams in each, giving 404 matches for the season. Each team consists of six players.

The leagues at this time are divided into

  • Four Ladies divisions
  • Six Men’s divisions
  • Six ‘League’ divisions

The ‘League’ format was how the Leigh & Westcliff started in 1950. A team consists of a mixed pair, a mens pair and two ladies to complete the six person squad. We like to believe that we are still unique with this way of playing team tennis.

Winter Leagues

Winter 2019-2020 see our divisions divided as follows:

  • Five Ladies Divisions
  • Seven Mens Divisions
  • Six Mixed Divisions

In each of our leagues, teams play each other home and away.  Each team consists of four players. This gives 520 matches played throughout the winter months on a fortnightly basis.

All played outdoors in the unpredictable weathers of South East Essex. Bad weather usually postpones few of the matches. A credit to the all weather tennis playing community of this corner of Essex.
