We couldn't send a Christmas card to everyone, but it doesn't take a moment to say thank you. Everyone who plays a match or helps spread the word is a partner we rely on. But did you know, nationwide there are over 600 organisations that have our backs?

As the year draws to a close, we thought we would take a moment to run the credits and say thank you to the organisations that help make Local Tennis Leagues possible. It is an extraordinary story, from the big guys and gals at the LTA, the governing body of the sport in Britain, to our commercial partners, HEAD, GLL/Better, Mizuno, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar and DriveNow and the hundreds of individual local authorities, tennis centres, coaches and clubs... none of it could be done without you.

And that's just some of the organisations that have helped us in every way imaginable, from putting up posters to discounting courts for players. If we have missed you out, our sincerest apologies - and let us know!
