Sally from Local Tennis Leagues and Robbie Sukhdeo from the Pavilion Sports and Café in Haringey present league winner Avery with his prize following his victory in the first Local Tennis Leagues round at the Pavilion.
Local Tennis Leagues, an online singles box league provider, have received recognition from GB Fed Cup captain and famous tennis parent Judy Murray following their successful efforts in providing competitive match opportunities for players in Glasgow.
Local Tennis Leagues currently run over 60 leagues across the country, from Cornwall to Glasgow, and Norwich to Bristol. Through their online leagues they provide over 750 players of all abilities with the chance to compete in singles matches on local courts at a time convenient to them.
Their Glasgow Tennis league features almost 40 players, and in the last league round these players took part in 86 matches, even braving the winter to go out and play tennis.
“It’s great to hear that so many people are playing competitive tennis through the winter months” said Judy Murray. “These leagues are the perfect way to extend the outdoor season and to make new tennis friends at the same time. Hope you have all had a ball! Yeah I know…..terrible pun!"
The players competing in the leagues all enjoy taking part, with many of them acknowledging that the service provided by Local Tennis Leagues has helped them get back into the sport. Richard Hopper, who competes in the Oxford league, said “These leagues are a great idea, and it makes a very easy way for somebody like me to try to get back into tennis”.
