Cameron Sim

"As a first timer to the league I wasn't sure how it would be, however I really enjoyed the experience",

Stuart Trotter

"I really enjoyed the experience of playing in the league. It was exactly what I was looking for, regular games, a good workout and that bit of competition to spur you on. I will definitely continue to play in the league and have encouraged a couple of friends to throw their hats in the ring (or racquets on court). I feel that my game has improved because of playing in the league and hope this continues also,"

Robert Graha

"Really enjoyed playing in Group 3. I feel I've improved my game since I first joined the league a few years ago, still got a lot to learn though. Playing in Group 2 will certainly be a tough test, though I'm looking forward to it,"

He was leading 4-1 first set when I hit a purple patch and won 5 games in a row to take the set. 2nd set was really tight and Jaimei eventually got through with some excellent volleying.... Final set, we did exchange a few breaks but it was neck to neck till the end... Eventually he took some very crucial points on my serve with some aggressive play and that sealed my fate ! 2 hours on court at Gorbals but it was real pleasure despite being on the losing side... Best of luck for the rest of the matches mate !!" -- Deepesh
