"​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,"

Matthew Dalton

"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

Player Comments:

  • "A very good game tonight against Paul - the score certainly doesn't reflect the sets that were played. Paul was very consistent and constantly forced me onto my defence. He was very quick off the mark and played some great winners. Thanks for a great game! "  -- Thomas
Reveal CommentThomas Fowler bt David Stewart (Jul 19) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A brilliant match tonight with David, some intense rallies and long service games. David's passing shots were great and his serve extremely consistent. He pressured me to think about my shots and forced me to play for winners, a tactic that favoured him more often than not and ultimately tired me out! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Cheers David. "  -- Thomas
Reveal CommentThomas Fowler bt Olly Calpin (Jul 13) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A great game and even better company. The score certainly doesnt reflect the games which consisted of endless rallies and double-figure dueces. Olly is a great chap with an absolutely monstrous serve and is ridiculously quick off the mark. Great night all round and definitely will meet him on the court in the future. Cheers Olly. "  -- Thomas
