Brian Marks

 I was very nervous for my first match but after a heavy defeat we went for a beer afterwards and I've never looked back! I would thoroughly recommend the tennis leagues. It is such an accessible and affordable way to play competitive tennis.

As he said he's a bit rusty, so when he gets all shiny and new again he'll be wizard. We are planning to play again so we can both de-rustify! Fun."  -- Toby

Player Comments:

  • "Golly gosh (again). Swiftly brushing over set one and three - the second set went on for simply ages (?an hour and a half?) and both of us were still 'a little tired' the next day when we concluded things. We think one game (where he went 4-2 up?) went deuce <---> advantage over 10 times. Scott's true serve came out in this set and there were not a couple of aces. Inamongst all the vigorously lengthy rallies we both delivered 'furiously failing forehands' grasping many an anticlimatic defeat from the jaws of an open-court easy 'tap' victory. Not sure how I won really. We had so much fun we are playing again just for laughs next Monday. Apologies for this win Scott and you shall do the same to me I am sure in the near future."  -- Toby

Player Comments:

  • "Gosh! Freezing morning considering and purple knees for me who neglected the long johns. Another exciting match with Asha warming me up (knees soon returned to a healthier hue) as I rushed around the court trying to deal with her positional play. The score belied Asha's masterly domination of much of the second set, winning 4 games in a row I think and taking me to 'advantage Asha' twice in the final game (me serving). I think we both agreed that we were 'getting better' generally. Watch out others in our group."  -- Toby
