"Thanks a lot for organising the league was really good fun!" 

Federico Roa

"​Thank you Local Tennis Leagues for organising the leagues. I have met a lot of amazing people to play tennis with by joining the local leagues. The staff at Local Tennis Leagues have always been very polite and prompt in responding to any emails or queries that I have had. Highly recommend it for anyone at any level to join Local Tennis Leagues,"

​Nihar Baldev

"Many thanks for the ongoing support throughout the tournament from all those involved in organising the West Ham League. I feel very honoured at being the first crowned winner so will cherish this with poignancy. The whole group deserves credit too as the high scoring showed the competitive edge and meant only outright wins would guarantee the 1st prize. The concerted push in the final weekend by all showed that most wanted to finish significantly higher than their current positions and this added to the tension and excitement of fighting to take the title. As the benchmark has been set, I will definitely be defending the title and I daresay the other players will be in contention stepping up their game to get their hands on the accolade!" 

Henry Horton

"I really enjoyed my 1st round in the West Ham Park league. . . brought back many happy memories of playing in the 80s in West Ham Park, wearing my 'Dunlop Greenflash', Taccini tennis tops, Wilson tube long tennis socks. . . wow the good days. Back then played in the 'Round Robin' & 'Prudential' tournaments. Met some great people and played some interesting games in this league," 

Derek Francois

"It was great to make new friends and play my matches against a variety of opponents. I thoroughly enjoyed it!",

Player Comments:

  • "Epic match with Winston. After taking the 1st set, the second set remained on serve until Winston, dictating with the forehand, comfortable took the tie break. With service breaks frequent in the final set, it still managed to go the distance and ended in a tie break. Only a few points separated Winston and me and luckily I got those points. Great match Winston! Looking forward to our next match!"  -- Alan
Reveal CommentAlan Lam bt Dinh PHAM (Apr 11) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable match against David. Adding to it, the weather couldn't quite make up its mind; a light sprinkle of snow one minute, and then sunny spring weather the next. Thanks for playing David and looking forward to our next hit."  -- Keng
Reveal CommentHarry Lodge bt Andreas Lang (Apr 2) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A rusty start in windy conditions, where I definitely benefited from playing earlier in the week. The game got a lot closer as it went on and I'm sure if this match took place in a few weeks time it would have been a very different affair. Thank you for the match Andreas - Harry."  -- Harry
