Player Comments:

  • "Great fun - some ice on the court was still thawing in the first set which meant we were both a bit tentative, then things started to flow in the second and I felt lucky to escape as Guy was really beginning to nail his shots. Cheers for the game, hope to play again!"  -- Jamie

Player Comments:

  • "As the score suggests, it was a close match. It’s so difficult to hit winners against Nicholas because he’s such great retriever, so I was glad my serve was working well to get me over the line. Thanks for a really competitive match. "  -- Michael

Player Comments:
