The Parks League, first contested in 1930, is one of Britain’s oldest city-wide tennis competitions. The league is contested by the the parks clubs of Brighton & Hove: BLAGSS, Blakers Park, Dyke Park, Hollingbury, Hove, King Alfred’s, Park Avenue, Queens Park, Rookery, Saltdean, St Ann’s Well and Stanford.
It’s all about doubles. Each Parks League team is made up of eight players, four female and four male, split into four pairs: mixed 1, mixed 2, mens pair and ladies pair.
The competition consists of four divisions of ten teams, each team completing 18 fixtures. Some clubs enter one or two teams, some five, six or seven. Check the Parks League website for details.
The Parks League also manage the annual Parks Cup knock out competition and End Of Season tournament – a mixed set of singles and doubles matches for each club team – both of which have featured strong performances from Hove Park members: in the Parks Cup David Redinha was runner up in the 2019 Men’s Singles; and Fariss Barakat and Jo Davis won the 2018 mixed doubles (second year running) and in the 2019 End Of Season tournament Hove took home the trophy.
For all league match players, a gentle reminder:
If you have signed up to play matches, please be ready for selection. Sorting out 6 or 7 teams (up to 56 players) every week is a big challenge. Please help your club captains, advise them of availability in advance, and respond to texts & messages promptly. It is fairer for everyone and increases your chance of playing. Thank you! 🙂
