I would recommend the league without a second of hesitation. You get the chance to meet really nice people who are passionate about getting on court and playing. I've met so many great people since joining the league and there is a level for everyone. It isn't just about winning or losing, just competing and trying to do your best and play to your maximum, that is really satisfying. We can't all win but we can all do ourselves justice. I'd encourage anyone to join up and give it a go
