Player Comments:

  • "The first set was really close but then I completely lost it in the second set - as I had Covid last week I shall blame that for my appalling 2nd set performance. I managed to redeem myself in the tiebreak but couldn’t quite get the win!!"  -- Liz

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyed this match with Briony in rather hot for October conditions in Heigham Park and not to the advantage of person serving against sun. We had long games with plenty of deuces with Briony catching up in both sets after a while. We both tried a few daring moves with couple of smash balls (mostly into net :( Thanks, Briony , it was a lot of fun!"  -- Beate

Player Comments:

  • "It was a lovely morning for tennis in Waterloo Park. The match was very even with both of us failing to hold serve in the first set. Many of our games went to deuce and really it could have gone either way. I was just able hold a few of my service games to secure the third set. Thank you for a really enjoyable game Bryony."  -- Cathy

Player Comments:

  • "The queen would approve we had decided before scheduling this match as she was already on her way to Windsor at the time of our match.The 2 sets took us a long time as we kept reminiscing about the royal departure and events in between games.The final score does not reflect Hillary's stamina as a lot of games went to deuce. We had a fair number of long rallies too and the weather was just the right temperature with a beautiful and fitting calm atmosphere in Heigham Park. Thank you Hillary for a good match on a historic day."  -- Beate

  • "Lovely intro back into playing league after some time off. Cathy was a great opponent with consistent ground strokes and we battles most games out to deuce. There was some reminiscence chat about the queen and a short pour of rain which we sat out on bench nearby. Thanks for the match and good luck with rest of the the games, Cathy."  -- Beate
