Player Comments:

  • Great game and James played an excellent and consistent game that caused me problems! Unfortunately the last set was determined by a tie brake to ten (as agreed by both before) due to lack of time on the lights - goes to show how tight the first two sets were! If we had to play a full third set it could have been a different story. - Paul

Player Comments:

  • An enjoyable game played in a friendly competitive manner - long rallies needed some good quality shots to finish with both players reporting an improvement in playing standard - perhaps due to a good quality court reducing uneven bounce as may be the case at some other venues. - James
