"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'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

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

Phil Zana

"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 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

"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
