Thank you all for taking part in this inaugural round of the Swansea league, it's great to be underway. We are working hard to grow the league but any help you can provide to spread the word would be very much appreciated. We'd love to see many more matches on the courts in Swansea particularly with summer on it's way. We haven't announced new dates as yet, but please pass the word round and we will be back in touch with more news as soon as we can!

Group Summary:

We're just getting underway in Swansea so this was atypically small group, but hats off to you all for getting every match played and showing the friendly spirit we like to see. Tyrone's terrific display of tennis earns him three convincing victories and with bonus points too he leaves us in no doubt as to who the first champion in Swansea is. Well done to Ian for clinching the runner up spot with two strong wins.
