"From taking up tennis, at one of the Local Tennis Leagues, namely Belair & Dulwich League, I have met all the benefits of being fit and stress-free with a top-tier ace! I thank Sally, Nigel & all the participants for making that possible!"

Pedro Figueroa

"​I have found the matches very enjoyable so far. Just wish I was taller and younger but beginning singles matches at 60 not being as daunting as I thought and is definitely having a positive impact on my doubles play! I appreciate the work behind the scenes to make it all happen,"

Player Comments:

  • "After three months of lock down it was never going to be a classic. Parth struggled for consistency in the first while I lived off his mistakes. The second was entirely different as Parth found his rhythm and I upped my game too. From my point of view it got tougher as the set progressed and I was relieved to get over the line in the end after dropping five match points. Just great to be out there - thanks Parth!"  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "It was nice to meet Ragnar and exciting to check out some new courts, at the HSBC Sports Club in Beckenham! Thank you for inviting me. It was a sunny but chilly Sunday morning, though the wind generally kept in check. We had some great rallies and I was happy to take a tight competitive first set, 6-4. Whilst we were both inconsistent at times, there was some superb shots and court coverage from Ragnar. I was just fortunate to be able to serve well at important times and get through some tricky Deuce games, which allowed me to pull ahead in the 2nd. Well played Ragnar, I hope to catch up with you soon in the not too distant future! Best, Patrick"  -- Patrick

  • "Excited to play again in the Local Tennis Leagues for the first time in 2021 and first time in Dulwich also after moving here last September. Nice match to start played in good spirits against Max, who interestingly is playing in the Leagues for the first time, that was me a few years ago! We were both quite rusty but there were some great rallies including some worldly lobs too! I enjoyed hitting with you Max, good luck the rest of the way! :)"  -- Patrick
