Player Comments:

  • "It was great to meet Ankan at Cassiobury park. Ankan played really well, especially considering he said he only started 6 months ago. In particular, the second set was really tightly contested and Ankan did look to potentially looking to maknig a comeback, I was happy to be able to close it out when I did. Thanks for the match Ankan!"  -- Ashley
