"Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the league and encouraging folk to play. I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience and met some new people to play social tennis with,"
Jane Peacock
"Absolutely loved my last round, fantastic format and met some really marvellous people. All matches had positive comments from our group and we played on some terrific courts here in Nottingham. Only problem for me, is that I feel I'm more suited to playing doubles. Full credit to your time and effort in making this work and I'm absolutely sure it will get stronger and bigger. I wish you every success for the future."

Player Comments:

  • "Our third matchup and they just keep getting better. it started out Even Stevens till Gareth took control to take the first set. I felt the match had slipped through my fingers when Gareth came from behind to take the second set to a tie-break. There were many long rallies but I hung on to even this up and force the third set. Fatigue played a major role in the third. Fortunately for me, Gareth lost his sharpness and I was able to assert a level of dominance to win the match. I've said it before, he's improved dramatically since our first contest. He's a great competitor, I hope he does well in his other matches in the round. A very enjoyable match. "  -- Glenn
