"Many thanks for organising the league, I enjoyed it especially the game against Baptiste who pushed me all the way and was the better tennis player. It has helped my game come along nicely and has made me play more shots and focus a little more too"

Simon Robinson

"Very enjoyable tennis, nice to play different styles and ages. League is exceptionally well run and I will play again but not this next round, hopefully the one after. I prefer playing singles to doubles and was pleased to see the league adverts in the parks of York, hopefully it will continue to grow. Congratulations on establishing such a successful business,"

Martin Pinfold

"​Hi thanks for the free tennis ball they came today :) I am very much enjoying the league can't wait to play more matches soon,"
