"Thank you to you for the free can of balls, and also for running these leagues which are truly a great way to progress!"

Guillaume Pfistner

"Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one! Many thanks for organising a fantastic league!" 

Ben de Grouchy

"Thanks to you and the rest of the team for organising the league, I've really enjoyed playing and it's been great to get back into tennis. All the matches, even the losses, have been very enjoyable and all the opponents have been very friendly and fair. I look forward to the next round,"

Harsha Boralessa

"You guys are doing a great job and I enjoyed the leagues I played with you"

Iñaki Lopez

"The organisation of the league was top drawer.  It was a great way to identify some local players and have some competitive fun.  I’ve been living in the area for years, but hadn’t picked up a tennis racket for ages as I didn’t know anyone local to play.  I’m expecting to continue hitting balls with some of the players in my group from time to time – and hopefully meeting some more players.   I’m looking forward to the next round in the New Year." 

Doug Byblow

"Thank you for the lovely local tennis league dampeners - I used one in a game today and won - so they're awesome!"

Aldo Zammit Borda
