"A big thank you to you and Nigel for organising and running the leagues which can be no small task,"

Zac Sargusingh

"It was really good fun thanks! Just the right amount of matches for the time given, a good variety of players and styles, all enjoyable matches. Being new to the area it was a great way to discover new courts, especially those that were brand new and free to use! Looking forward to the next round - thanks!" 

Jeremy Woolley

"I had vacillated about joining a league for quite a while and I'm glad I did. It was a friendlier experience than I'd expected - I was ready for disputed line calls and broken racquets but that never happened! The winter weather was obviously a challenge throughout and I'm looking forward to balmier games - although they'll probably be balmy defeats for me in league 1…A suggestion would be a table ranking the local courts for quality and facilities, based on players' feedback. Thanks for all your work to make this enjoyable for us,"

Jay Lalljee

"Thanks for the work co-ordinating all the leagues - I think it's a really great system!" 

Stuart Younger

"I've really enjoyed the tennis, especially the 2nd round (despite losing every match!). I really felt I learnt a lot from playing against some good opponents"

"Great fun even with tough schedules and difficult weather. Thanks for all your effort, it takes something like this for some of us to get motivated."

"Thank you again for another great tournament! I enjoyed every game and can't wait for the next round."


"I’m really enjoying this tennis league – thanks for all your hard work in putting this together. "

"Thanks again for setting up this league, it's great fun!"

"I really enjoyed this round - maybe because it's the first time I actually win some money through tennis! I knew I should have pursued a career in it ;-) Thanks for putting this all together."

"Thanks for organising, you've done a brilliant job. I'll definitely be signing up for the second round. I really enjoyed the first round of matches."

"Enjoyed all my matches and the people have been lovely.  Can't wait for Round 2."

"I've enjoyed it very much and look forward to participating in any other leagues you might be organising.  And thank you for putting this all together."

"Really enjoying the matches and the people I have played have all been lovely people.  Thank you in advance for the tennis balls"

"Thanks again for such a fun league.  Looking forward to the next one."

"This league has been great to keep my tennis going while I haven't been a member of a club and there's a good chance I'll join a new league wh​en I move. Thanks for all your organisational work and a good website makeover​"

  • "Survived flying footballs, low hanging sunshine and the sound of 80,000 people chanting inane dance music lyrics at the nearby Wireless Festival to go two and a half hours, outlasting everyone around us several times over. As soon as one of us thought we'd cracked the opponent's game he promptly switched it up. The definition of an epic!

  • "After the opening six games were shared, Nathan's serve, at its best swingy and awkward to deal with, took a downturn while mine enjoyed one of its all-too-rare spells of consistent effectiveness and that proved decisive. On another day the outcome could be very different" -- Chris

Reveal CommentOliver Gossage bt Chris Ward (May 19) 0-6, 6-3, 6-4


  • "In our match played initially against the Gothic background of lowering skies and lightning flashes over Ally Pally, Oli overcooked things in the first set, gifting me too many points. When he changed to an approach based on patience and perseverance , this, coupled with my ability to keep more or less anything in play if with no great style, meant rallies of 20-30 shots became commonplace. Oli deservedly shaded it- fair play to him for turning the match round" -- Chris
