"It was a great round with some good matches and good opponents, so looking forward to the next one!

Thibault Soubeyrand

"Thanks for all the organising.  I had fun playing and meeting people"

Jasmine Brown

"This is the first time I've played and I want to congratulate you on your overall organisation and attention to detail, to make everything work so well. It's been brilliant. Thanks to your comprehensive questionnaire I was in a league where every game was highly competitive and lots of fun. You also keep things personal, with your replies to e-mails and general encouragement. I think other leagues in London have a lot to learn from you. Well done and thanks for all your effort and support. I'm sure many others appreciate it as much as I do,"

Tom Leonard

"Thanks for organising the league, I have enjoyed playing in the last few rounds. It has been a great way of finding new opponents to play and my game has improved by playing unfamiliar players with a variety of styles. The standard of tennis seems to have improved over the rounds and the matches have been played in a competitive but friendly spirit."

Harsha Boralessa

"I think the tennis leagues are great and my game has improved so much for playing competitively!"

James Bryan

"After 16 years out of the game, it has been fantastic to dust off the racquet (which looks rather out of date now) and get back on the court. Thanks very much for helping to get me back in the game!"

Rupert Davies
