"A big thank you to you and Nigel for organising and running the leagues which can be no small task,"

Zac Sargusingh

"It was really good fun thanks! Just the right amount of matches for the time given, a good variety of players and styles, all enjoyable matches. Being new to the area it was a great way to discover new courts, especially those that were brand new and free to use! Looking forward to the next round - thanks!" 

Jeremy Woolley

"I had vacillated about joining a league for quite a while and I'm glad I did. It was a friendlier experience than I'd expected - I was ready for disputed line calls and broken racquets but that never happened! The winter weather was obviously a challenge throughout and I'm looking forward to balmier games - although they'll probably be balmy defeats for me in league 1…A suggestion would be a table ranking the local courts for quality and facilities, based on players' feedback. Thanks for all your work to make this enjoyable for us,"

Jay Lalljee

  • "Tight first set. Giorgio missed some good opportunities to break. Fun match even though we had to play very cautiously because of very slippery surface." -- Pawel
Reveal CommentCharlie Clinton bt Pawel Kisiel (Nov 18) 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2


  • "After being 4-2 down in the first set, Pawel was able to fight back and take it 6-4. Second set was a generally much higher level... but once again from 5-3 down Pawel fought back to be 6-5 up and two points from victory. Thankfully this time I managed to hold on and win the tie break. After over two hours I was finally able to close it out in set 3! " -- Charlie

Reveal CommentMoby Longinotto bt Charlie Clinton (Nov 4) 6-3, 6-1


  • "First time in the new river bubble. Some epic rallies and deuce in almost every game in the second set. Charlie's cross court forehand did most of the damage in a close match.
    Cheers " -- Moby
Reveal CommentMoby Longinotto bt Giorgio Salvi (Oct 31) 6-0, 6-3


  • "Stunning day leafy autumn day the sun was warm and it was the first time I'd played at the little Stationers park. Second set was tight with Giorgio hitting some good volleys after nice forehand returns. Great stuff thanks" -- Moby
Reveal CommentMoby Longinotto bt Fred Asquith (Oct 26) 6-4, 6-1


  • "Bright autumn day in chestnuts. A good contest with Fred roaring back into the first set with a number of winners and aces. Shot of the day was a wide serve followed up with a scorching two handed back hand cross court. Good stuff." -- Moby

  • "It was a great match, especially the second set had lots of twists and turns." -- Oliver
Reveal CommentRichard Pettet bt Stuart Younger (Nov 15) 6-1, 6-3


  • "Wind is evil and disruptive. It is not only my enemy but the enemy of tennis. In amongst the swirling gusts, falling trees and toppling pylons, lurked a tennis match between Stuart and myself that contained a variety of ludicrous wind-affected shots. There were patches of quality but not many. I think I won because I coped marginally better with said enemy. Nice to meet Stuart though. A gent. Good luck with the cat. Rich." -- Richard
Reveal CommentStuart Younger bt Chris Ward (Nov 10) 6-4, 6-1


  • "Interesting conditions, playing under a half flood-lit court, as the other lights weren't working, but enough to allow a decent match. Epic first game that took maybe 15 minutes, where I managed to hold onto my serve, then broke for 2-0. Chris came back to 4-4 and it was looking close, before I closed it out 6-4. That started a run of winning about 6 games in a row, where Chris lost the touch for a bit, before coming back strongly and making me work really hard to close out the second set. " -- Stuart
