"Participation in the league was a great experience for me.  I am very happy that I can play tennis here.  I'm expecting in the next round to have nice meetings with the players and cool games."

Janusz Wilczynski

"I really enjoyed the Tennis League and have already signed up for Round 2. I am trying to get some of my friends to join. All the players I have met were very friendly and the games were played in a good spirit, but with the competitive element. I will continue to play matches against Richard Frampton and would happily meet up and play with everybody who was in the League.", 

Martyn Dudley

Collapse AllBromsgrove & Redditch Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 31 August 2017 to Wednesday 25 October 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 27 September 2017)

It was another successful round in Bromsgrove & Redditch Tennis League, so thank you all for taking part and playing some great matches! Guillaume cemented his position at the top of the group but was chased hard by Martyn, so there's all to play for again next time! 7 out of 15 matches were played in total, so keep up the good work.

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Guillaume for winning Group 1 for the second round in a row, finishing 4 points clear of runner up Martyn. Guillaume's toughest match was against Brian who narrowly missed out on the win by losing the third set championship tiebreak [13-11]... what a contest! There were also 4 double bagel results in this group though so it was quite a mixed bag! Don't forget to schedule your matches early next time to claim those midway bonus points!
