"I have played a wide variety of sporting events and Local Tennis Leagues continues to be one of the best run competitions I have played in. Enjoyed the company of everyone I played and the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre is more than worth the journey to get there,"

Bruce Stallard

"Fantastic, a lot of fun. At the beginning I was a bit worried about maybe being in the wrong group, but the matches got much harder by the end and I earned a lot of match experience. Thought the communication between you guys and the players was top notch as well. Definitely signing up to the next round and looking really forward to the new challenges of a tougher group!"

Stephen Jones

"I'm about to finish my second round and would like to say thank you to the organisers. I think they do a terrific job, everything goes so smoothly like arranging games, submitting scores etc. Participating in the league gave me a taste of competitive tennis and I think I learned a lot of tennis etiquette and thanks to some great opponents learned to enjoy the game even if you are winning or losing!"

Daniel Ion

"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,"

  • "Great match against Allan on a cool evening in Walthamstow. First set I managed to edge out quite easily, the second set however was a different story. Some great rallies and more consistent playing with Allan staying a break up throughout the set. I just managed to break back at the end and force a tie break. I was up 5-2 but Allan fought back to 5-5. I managed to hang on before the light went. Could've easily gone to a third. Thanks Allan for the game. Great stuff "  -- Avvon

Managed to claw back and win the second set with more room for error playing. Third set we both struggled to hold serve and had to leave it at 2-3 and deuce. We continued the next day with a tough first game for Patrick having to serve at deuce. I managed to.break and hold serve but then Patrick cane back with some great passing shots. I just managed to hold out and take the third set. Really enjoyable match and could've easily gone the other way."  -- Avvon

I took the first set quite comfortably keeping it consistent. 2nd set the rain came down and although Avvon had a couple of nasty falls his game improved hitting the ball with more depth and variety. The crunch came as Avvon had 2 set points at 6-5 up, but couldn't convert as I hung in there. No such drama in the tie-break as I took it 7-3.

It was a lot tougher than the score line suggests. With Rich at full strength and more match practice, the score line would have been a lot tighter.

Reveal CommentReg Coker bt Nick Mayes (May 20) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Nick and I started tentatively, with both of us losing our serves in our opening games. We exchanged a few more breaks of serve until 4-4. I was able to steady my nerves to break again and hold for 6-4. Blue skies suddenly turned nasty and the heavens opened sending everyone scrambling for shelter. On our return, conditions had inevitably changed but we persevered in the wet conditions. The second set was not as close (6-1) but I think we both enjoyed the match, which included one or two nice rallies and some daring net play from both of us. Cheers Nick and good luck with the rest of the round."  -- Reg
