"​I have now completed all of my matches in the Manchester Parks local tennis league and it has been a very enjoyable undertaking. I've met many friendly faces who've all shared the same passion for the sport and it was a great opportunity to expand my tennis network of friends,"

J Cullen

"I'm really enjoying the spirit and ethos of this League. It's not about winning and scoring brownie points but meeting new friends who share the same passion for the Sport of Champions. It's the spirit of the game that shines through. Thank you both for organising a really engaging event for anyone who wants to get fit and enjoy the benefits tennis has to offer," 

Stephen Reynolds

"Just wanted to say a quick thank you for making this happen! We're now entering our second round and although it can sometimes prove difficult to orchestrate 4 people (instead of just 2) the tennis has been great fun. Thanks again,"

Tom Brown

In the first set, after falling 2-0 behind, Antonio mounted a comeback following a short rain delay. From 2-2 however, Owen managed to regain momentum and win the set 6-2 with many close games going to deuce. In the second set Owen, for the most part dominated proceedings as unforced errors began to creep into Antonio's play. Although rallies and games remained interesting, in the points that mattered Owen consistently had the edge winning the set and thus closing out the match 6-2, 6-0. Overall a great match in sunny Fletcher Moss leaving both players looking forward to the rematch!"  -- Owen

Collapse AllManchester Parks Doubles - Round 5 | Thursday 22 August 2019 to Wednesday 30 October 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 September 2019)

To get more than three quarters of matches set up and played in doubles (with four diaries to juggle ... never easy) is quite an achievement. And these were impressive, action packed matches. Thanks so much for making it such a good round. Let's do it all again in the New Year!

Group Summary:

All but two matches played in Group One which is a brilliant achievement! Just as pleasing are the generous and supportive commentaries which really bring it all to life. The stand out team was Faiz & Callum who played and won all their matches but there were some tough encounters along the way, not least of which was the dramatic three-setter with Daniel and Tom. In the end Daniel and Tom have to settle for third place with Andrew and Martin avenging their defeat to the pair (another great match) by adding bonus points to earn the silver.

Group Summary:

This really close group was decided by a single point, a point earned in an unfinished match between Victoria & Thomas and Francesco & Anuraag. It looked like that was shaping up to be a classic so if a single-set shoot-out has to decide the group winner this was a pretty good one! Well played to both teams on your excellent rounds.
