"Brilliant! Met some great people who I continue to practice with. The league is a great way of getting back into tennis (I hadn't played for about 15 years)! Especially given the membership prices of some of the clubs! Looking forward to moving up a league which I know will be harder but it can only improve my game. Many thanks!", Keith Wood

Player Comments:

  • "A beautiful, sunny spring afternoon at Beverley Park heralded the return of tennis and our first match of the new league. Forget the first set. The match was all about the second set. The games swung back and forth, with most tied at Deuce, with some cracking long rallies and a lot of running from both players. Chris gained confidence and settled into his game in the second, serving several aces and hitting some decisive winners. In the end however, the dogged determination of the home player won out. An excellent match and a very enjoyable afternoon of tennis. Thanks lot Chris."  -- Craig
