Clapham Common Tennis League

About Us

Clapham's local tennis league

How it began

The idea for a local park tennis league began as a way to improve our own game. We set up the first, fledging league on Highbury Fields, north London in May 2005. It took off.  Since then, it has helped hundreds of players find tennis partners and play regular competitive matches.

The first round of Clapham Common Tennis League began on 2 September, 2008, and we hope it will become a regular feature of the local courts with 4 rounds a year.

The Clapham Common Tennis League is run by
Sally Kinnes & Nigel Billen

Our Philosophy


We have found that although there are plenty of leagues and ladders in clubs if you seek them out, there is not always a regular league for players who play on one set of local public courts. Having one, we have discovered, helps build a sense of community, puts local players in touch with each other, and gives people a way of seeing themselves improve.


Our aim is to launch more leagues wherever there is a need, concentrating on public courts where finding opponents can be difficult.
