"Thanks for organising this new league - it was a good way to keep playing through the winter and I also met 2 players I could play with regularly," 

Benjamin C

"This was my first competitive tennis competition (I normally only play on holiday in a social spirit) and thoroughly enjoyed playing and meeting different players at different venues. I really liked playing at the Lee Valley Courts (we had to play indoors during one match because of heavy wind/rain showers). It would be really good to get a discount on the court hire when we are playing the Lee Valley league matches...  All in all though, a great experience and hopefully if I'm fit next February I plan to play in the next round. Many thanks for the admin and arrangements for these leagues... it is appreciated," 

Cliff Warren

"I thoroughly enjoyed your  organization, the venues, my opponents and the matches. I will definitely  play in the future. For now the seniors tour starts and it would be too  difficult to combine both. However, I will be back later this year. Thanks  for your work providing a great tournament,"

Bruce Stallard

"I really enjoyed this round and being able to play several games with other people. Also for the first time, I managed to win a few games. We shared lots of laughs and experiences together. I will def play more :) It just motivates me improve,"

Yading Song

"Another occasion to congratulate Nigel and Sally on organizing so brilliantly this friendly tennis competition,"

Phil Zana

Great fun, thoroughly enjoyed each match. You did a good job in placing us with competitors of similar ability,"

  • "Hard fought match. At 5-4 up, phil broke my serve to take the first set. Second set I mixed the aggression with dropshots, both of us playing some great tennis as I took the set 6-2. Decider was not as easy as the score line suggests. Phil experienced a lot of slips and loosing his footing including a nasty fall. A few of these came at quite crucial times. Phil never wavered though and even saved 5 matchpoints at 5-3 down. Luckily i kept my composure to take the match 6-3. Phil is a gritty competitor. Thanks."  -- Zafar

  • "Another over 3 hours thriller with Zafar. We started early in the morning and the court was wet. I was very cautious on my moving and played more aggressivly the first set to shorten the rallies, but Zafar completely outplayed me there. Shortly after the second set started I found my self with break down and bruised knees and pride, but since then I focus playing my defensive game and manage to turned the match around and even saving a match point in the tiebreak. Looking forward to the next match with Zafar"  -- Ivan
