Sofia Milone

Northern Aces and the GLTA got me back into tennis after an 18 year break. I'm now fitter and happier than I've ever been, and playing the best tennis in my life.

Neil Smallburn

After 20 years away, thinking gay men weren’t supposed to play tennis, I finally found somewhere to play and be myself. I’ve won a few tournaments and even better found some great friends.

Graham Mather

I came across Northern Aces on social media, I had no idea LGBT clubs were a thing. I now travel from North Yorkshire monthly for the social session which is always worth the journey.
