Player Comments:

  • "Very gratifying to meet Hillary not least because it was my first league match win in quite sometime but primarily because Hillary was delighted there was a ladies only singles league. I expressed my joy on hearing this as I had been instrumental in persuading LLT to start such a league nearly 5 years ago. Thanks for the game, Hillary, in perfect playing conditions at Eaton Park. I look forward to seeing you again in the next round! "  -- Victoria

Great to play Wendy again, and looking forward to recommencing on 12 August (This time, we have booked an inside court 😊)"  -- Sandra

  • "Victoria and I intended to play at Thorpe Park, and then the skies opened, and it poured. We are both members at the local Gym and managed to book a court straight away. It was a great game, and a very close first set with most games going to deuce. We enjoyed the game so much, that we are going to practice together every week, in prep for the next league !"  -- Sandra

Player Comments:

I pinched the second set then the third set turned into an epic when Julie won 3 games in a row we almost ran out of time but 2 kind gents allowed us to play out the last point during which I finally got a decent touch volley in to win, having fluffed so many along the way. Thanks Julie- it was good to meet you and hope we will battle it out again in future."  -- Helen
