"​I had a blast being part of the league. This was my first experience with playing tennis through the Winter. Back home I only played recreationally with friends during the summer. So this was a treat for me. Really appreciate that I was able to get in touch with so many other players. You made playing so available for me,"

Philip Furgiuele

"​I must be one of your oldest players at 73 and the court seems to be getting bigger with every year that passes.  These young lads hit the ball too hard and run for ever.  Still the leagues are great fun.  Where else could I play a Frenchman, an Australian and a Latvian in the space of a couple of weeks?  I have claimed my bonus prize!"

Alan Cole

"Just a quick note to thank you for organising these leagues - they are a lot of fun and you guys do a great job,"

Saverio Grazioli-Venier

"Very friendly and comeptitive at the same time! Always a pleasure",
