"I would like to congratulate you on the success of the league. I have just finished my second round (group 4) in the Cambridge league. It is a format that everybody seems to enjoy.  All matches were competitive, it certainly proved the right level for me ie not swept away by players far superior to me!"

John Bateman

Thanks for organizing these leagues, they are a great way to meet other players in your area who are of a similar skill level!

Player Comments:

  • "After not playing for over a year, it was good to get back on the court. We were both out of shape, but Sergio was a bit fitter. The first set went back and forth and any of us could've won, The tiebreak score just shows how close it was. After that terrific first set, I was just in slow motion for the second set and just running on fumes. Won't complain too much. Since it's my first game back, I'll take it! Well done, Sergio!"  -- Andrew
