"This tennis league is such a great idea - I'm really enjoying it.  Thank you!"

Rachel Holmes

"Great league, it is very pleasant to play at Barnes thanks to the convenience of booking the courts and a great atmosphere.",

"I broke my strings in point two so perhaps it wasn’t my best tennis but it is all good practice as matches are so different to just social hitting – and the chance to play new people who are keen just to play is great!"

Clare Knowles

"Thanks for all your great work"

Glen Stephens

"Thanks for organising the tennis. I enjoyed it immensely and I will participate again next year"

Ruth Tempelmayr

Reveal CommentNicola Bottioni bt Nick Sinden (Jun 26) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Nicks would wait and relax for a bar or two of white-lined time before going into the act of serving, and often bounced the ball once or twice, always at ease, always rather vague about the score….The exquisite clarity of their movements had its auditory counterpart in the pure ringing sound of every stroke. The ball when it entered their aura of control became somehow whiter, its resilience somehow richer, and the instrument of precision them used upon it seemed inordinately prehensile and deliberate at the moment of clinging contact. Thanks Nick Nick "  -- Nicola
