"Just thought I’d say how enjoyable the first Norwich Parks ladies league has been and I’ve signed up for the next one,"

Julie Cooper

"​Loving this league! Games are close and competitive even when the scoreline suggests otherwise and the opportunity to play ladies singles is a godsend to a keen player like me who has tried and failed to join any local clubs in the area due to the prevalence of doubles. The matches in this league have given me the confidence to enter tournaments for the first time ever this summer!", Victoria Chubb
