"Many thanks for organising the league – I’ve very much enjoyed the two rounds I’ve been involved in,"

Jeremy Croxall

"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

"I really enjoyed this round - maybe because it's the first time I actually win some money through tennis! I knew I should have pursued a career in it ;-) Thanks for putting this all together."

"Enjoyed all my matches and the people have been lovely.  Can't wait for Round 2."

"Totally loving the league."

"I loved playing in the league (thanks for organising!)"

Reveal CommentLuca Pusceddu bt Norman Freshney (Sep 26) 6-3, 5-7, 6-4


  • "A great and fun match with lots of ups and downs for both players. Luca may have won but it was definitely Norman who got the best shots of the match, including the tightest quickest cross court pass, and an inch perfect defensive lob. Word of advice to anyone playing on outdoor New River courts past 7ish p.m.: beware the slippery surface. Very dangerous, we both slipped and fell more than once, luckily avoiding the worse." -- Luca
Reveal CommentLuca Pusceddu bt Patrick Scott (Sep 18) 6-2, 6-2


  • "Luca and I played a very enjoyable match on the impeccable courts at Clissold Park. I managed to stay with him for 2-2 in both sets but he proved too good for me and pulled away in both.

    What we lacked in match fitness we made up for in the ambition of our stroke play. We may have had trouble remembering the score but we never shied away from playing the sort of tennis one should play on a warm Sunday afternoon: hungover but aspiring to glory with every shot." -- Patrick

  • "I quickly found myself 0-5 down as Peter made an impressive start and I struggled to find any kind of form. As I started to claw my way back, Peter lunged for a dropshot, winning the point but unfortunately at the expense of a leg muscle problem. He valiantly carried on for a bit before retiring in the opening game of the third. Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery." -- Chris
