๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“ฐ, Local ๐ŸŽพ Leagues now supports emojis

Emojis can now be used on Local Tennis League match commentaries! To celebrate we look at some of the best tennis emoji messages from Andy Murray's wedding announcement to birthday greetings to Roger Federer playing with Rafa Nadal and suggest a few that you might want to add to your match reports.

Never let it be said that Local Tennis Leagues lags behind the times. Some of you will be aware that it has not been possible to use emojis in match reports. When youย triedย and our website reported an errorย and wentย off to sulk. Last night we took the site off-line and performed a "character set" update and now you can use emojis to your heart's content! If you do, you will not be alone amongย tennis players.

Love them or hate them these little ideograms (and that doesn't mean they areย used by idiots) have become a big part of the pro game and the way the top players use social media. Here are some of our favourites.
