Ibrahim Mahdi

"Thank you and Nigel for taking the time and effort to run the leagues for us .. much appreciated!" 

Anand Panjabi

"I'd like to say the league has been great, very efficiently run and I love being able to play people who live locally... So thanks a lot and look forward to joining the next league."

 "I really enjoyed the couple of rounds that I played last year; good fun!!  Thanks for organising it all,"

Peter Portway

"It's a brilliant league, and particularly handy as I only live 2 minutes from the Park.  There's quite a range of levels as expected, but it's fun and gives you the incentive to get out there and play.  So I'll definitely be signing up for the next one."

Reveal CommentTanil Patel bt Christophe Michaud (Nov 26) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a pleasant day but the same couldn't be said for the courts. The courts proved to be slippery and the glare was at times unbearable. Christophe won the toss and elected for Tanil to serve. The first game was underway. Consistent serving proved beneficial allowing Tanil to take the opening game. The set proceeded in similar fashion for both players until Tanil was able to break Christophe creating the distance to win the set. There was some great shots from both players which would hopefully setup for a similarly good match up in the next set. The second set didn't disappoint with both players making great efforts. Tanil however was more consistent giving him the end victory. "  -- Tanil
Reveal CommentTanil Patel bt Valda Kampf (Nov 20) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It was a cold and wet day. The match had been scheduled for 10am at Roe Green Park. After a slight delay the two opponents met beginning with a quick warm up, if this was even possible in such temperatures. Valda won the toss and opted to serve. As the game continued, it was evident that Valda's consistency proved crucial in keeping the pressure on Tanil. The first set was eventually won by Tanil and the 2nd set was were Valda took on another level. She was leading. Tanil had to dig deep and found some form to close the 2nd set concluding the game. Approaching the net, both players smiling, acknowledged the weather and the effort each person had put in to deal with the adverse conditions. "  -- Tanil
