"Very enjoyable and good to meet with and play other tennis players other than those that I regularly play with at my club.", 

Neil Dunlop

" I loved playing in the Southend Tennis League. I wasn't sure if the standard was going to be too much for me (I'm fat and over forty!). As it happened, I won my group and didn't drop a set. I'm probably due a hammering in the next round...but I'm ready and up for the challenge! My friend Stuart is also planning to join in the next round (July 2016)...so it'll be good to have a regular practice partner. I wish this league had been available when I was growing up...great fun/great people.",

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely weather at Invicta & our 1st meeting at this venue. I got off to a flier winning both opening games to love. Unusually I served quite consistently & won the set 6 - 3 with Rob not quite at his best. 2nd set started with 4 breaks of serve at 2 - 2 but then I won 3 straight games to almost win the match. Great to play Rob & have a good natter. No doubt he will find his form next time. Good luck."  -- John
