Why Phuket Tennis League ?
We have recently put together the Phuket Tennis League with organised matches and ranking system in hopes of building a fun, social, challenging and rewarding tennis league for all kinds and levels, from advanced players and coaches, to those who deem it a hobby or a passion entirely.
The PTL’s aim is also to become a friendly platform suited to the tennis community of Phuket where, players and tennis clubs alike can turn to for, resources and anything tennis-related. The Phuket tennis league strives to be a network of tennis clubs, coaches and players of all kind around fun, passion and fairplay
Curator and Co-founder
David is a Phuket Resident for 20 years and a tennis aficionado.
He plays on the ITF world senior tour with highest ranking at 374 in 2018.
“I have been playing tennis in Phuket for many years, and I’ve always thought it would be nice to have some kind of organisation to plan regular matches around the island.
Not only to meet new players and establish friendships and acquaintances over a sport that we have in common, but also to provide extra motivation to keep playing and continue to improve our skills. I believe an element of competition can push people to keep fit, and encourage growth both physically and mentally.
Unfortunately, Phuket hasn’t had any sort of organisation over the years, even though some tennis clubs do plan matches for their members, these were only ever for specific people or club members, not the entire tennis community…”

As a marketing professional, I am passionate about understanding problems and coming up with solutions to solve them, especially when it comes down to help local communities. Just the idea of getting Tennis players, coaches together and strengthen makes me happy.
