"Thanks for all of the fun!" 

Jakub Zielkiewicz

"Thanks for organising, you've done a brilliant job. I'll definitely be signing up for the second round. I really enjoyed the first round of matches."

"It was really good fun thanks! Just the right amount of matches for the time given, a good variety of players and styles, all enjoyable matches. Being new to the area it was a great way to discover new courts, especially those that were brand new and free to use! Looking forward to the next round - thanks!" 

Jeremy Woolley

"A big thank you to you and Nigel for organising and running the leagues which can be no small task,"

Zac Sargusingh

"Thanks for encouraging me to join the league and for providing games suitable for a middle-aged returner - I had a  great time.  I was pleased - and rather surprised - to win the round  and look forward to having a go in a slightly higher group next time,"

Chris Ward

"I loved playing in the league (thanks for organising!)"
