U8L gives you the opportunity to drive your passion for tennis, challenge yourself and improve your game to the next level.
It is very well organised, played competitively and a great place to network and make friends.
At U8L, I just won my first Trophy. Go get yours!
Thankful to the U8L team for organising such a wonderful league for the players!
It was my first time ever that I have participated in such an event, being only 3months old in the world of tennis, I had a bag full of learnings and more importantly built game confidence.
Already looking forward for my next one in December with the same league!
Highly appreciate Amit Sirs effort to gather such an amazing event!
I really like the new format of U8L.. and I’m really lucky to get chance to play this tournament 1st time…Very good sportsmanship of all players.. I not only win matches but I made many friends…thank you so much Amit Shinde for organizing such beautiful event. Would love to come again again..
Thank you Amit for arranging a nice tournament last week. It is great to see your enthusiasm and passion for tennis.
I really enjoyed being a part of this group as it has helped me get in touch with new friends and good caliber players. Its an amazing platform for tennis enthusiast.
Continue the good work Amit. Wish you all the best.
Amit has creatively used his imagination to come up with U8L which helps participants maximise fun and seek inspiration to improve their game. You may be the king in your club but here there is a different level of competition which makes you want to hit the ball harder and play your best.
Amit does it all. He plays he organises he has a blast. It’s amazing to see him juggle so many hats.
The team at Tufts academy is a big support and I am looking forward to playing the next league next month.
It had been very exciting time at U8L event last weekend, courtesy my friend n partner in doubles , Ricky Mehra with never lose hopes approach.
The tournament was very well organised by Amit with the support of Tuff team. very agile and pleasing personality. Though friendly with all players, he ensured that no court was idling during entire tournament, pushing every one hard with friendly yet authoritave tone to go strictly by schedule.
The format was new to most of us but enjoyed Robinhood opportunities to compete even after defeats in primary events which was something new and very interesting.
More admirable quality of Amit was even while he himself playing in some of the tough matches, he always kept an eye on happenings on other court to keep the court occupied and guided alll events to finish as per schedule.
My best wishes for all future tournaments of ultim8 and look forward to participate and enjoy competitive yet friend tennis.
Really ultimate first of all thanks Amit and team for grt job. Ultimate league is very good platform for club level players. Format is innovative I played first time here awesome experience. Thankful to all ball boys n staff for organizing wonderful event special thanks to photographer Guptaji. And very special thanks to my doubles partner Rituraj Varmaji for motivating me.

I wish you a great success and have an amazing leagues ahead in upcoming time.
Great initiative by sir and the rest to promote the sport of tennis. It was a good experience playing and meeting with tennis enthusiasts who love the sport as much as I do.
Thank you Amit sir for organising such a beautiful event. My first ever tournament and after this ultimate league I am going to play tournaments quite often because the overall experience was superb. And yesss even U8L is organised every month so we should all meet up there. Once again Thank you. 👍🏻👍🏻
First Must Compliment Amit and his team for Doing a Great Job and Highly Commendable – Its Not easy to take care of so many players and organize such an event.
Was my First Tournament and Best Part was No Caoches etc allowed so we New comers Given a Good fair opportunity
All Players Played their best and I made Quite a Few Friends and thats Good Part too.
Congrats to All Winners and Also Best Wishes to All Players for all Upcoming Future Tournaments
Have No Doubt a few Suggestions whcih will share with Amit Directly as I May Be am Wrong as am New to This Circuit and have started playing Tennis just 2 years ago ( Am Absolutely RAW) – And I thank my Son for getting me to play this game
I would also Like to Thank all staff , Ball Boys and All Involved in Organizing this Amazing Tournament.
I would also Like to Thank My Partner Sanjay Kolge for putting up a Good performance with me in the 40 Plus Doubles – Thanks Sanjay
A thrilling and awesome experience, the forum gives us an opportunity to play maximum number of matches . The format also gives u various openings to come back at different stages of the tournament….kudos to the organisers
U8L has been a path breaking initiative. For so many of us who have started tennis and who wanted an opportunity to test ourselves…U8L has been the platform like no other. It made it competitive and at the same time a fun event that can’t be missed! Great going Amit and Nikhil!
Being a 54+ and having played in best of 3 full sets under hot sun during middle of working weeks in other tournaments this playing format was a welcome change and i thoroughly enjoyed .
Another interesting advantage of this format – even if one is grouped with higher ranked players you still get chance to play with another group and still put a respectable show .
Win or loose keep playing .
Kudos to Amit & Nikil and wishing success season after season
Nothing gets better than this,the mother of all tournaments U8L is an innovative platform for amateur tournament that has dug out the genius of tennis amateur ftom the far corners of Mumbai city and beyond, which would otherwise have languished in obscurity, creating a family of tennis amateurs with great skills and sporting ethics that sets us apart from the ordinary.
Its a monthly tennis carnival spread over eight months with a seeding system to enable amateurs to improve their rankings and their game, win prizes and attain tennis glory.
Applaud the selfless efforts of Amit Shinde ans Nikhil Rao for their noble work and dedication.
It cant get better than this.
U8L’s unique crisp match formats, action packed scheduling, eight month calendar, individual player profiles, meticulous detailing and above all the tireless efforts and unlimited passion by its founder which helps the league constantly evolve makes it a one of a kind league across the globe. For me, is already one of the most awaited events every month. Wish you more power and success in the years to come and may the league reach greater heights!
It is said that certain players are sent from up stairs to regale the audienes.But their endeavour also is more often than not selfless ever. But this duo has developed a distnictive concept almost selflessly, the only selfish motive being that they ensure that they take home most of the trophies themselves leaving others empty handed. Hope Doc is not listening.
Jokes apart, these guys have developed a unique interface, where no one is a loser. Great ambience where relative strangers bond big time over the glorious game of tennis, backslapping each other like long lost chums.
Thanks Guys for giving a fresh lease of life to the weary bones, Yes precisely the reason you have been sent from upstairs, which is to regale us all.
May God give you more strength to persist with your untiring efforts.
Kudos Nick and and Amit for the joy you guys disseminate not only on the tennis court but also with your contagious smile on the courtside.
Winners all, Love all & Advantage all.
P.S – Am sure you would continue to render this great service to all of us even after a lapse of 16 years.
Great job Amit. It gives a opportunity for all of us to fulfill our dream of playing in a tennis tournament. For me personally this was my first tournament and I loved it . It has taught me to be cool while playing and not over playing myself.
Hope you guys are able to reach and conduct this in all cities of India and also the world. Will forever be a part of this till I am able to play this lovely game. Thanks cheers
Personally, it was a great experience. Amazing to see Mr. Amit and Mr. Nikhil pull it off so commendably well. Cheers to them as a team. Wishing the league a great success in future as well.
Great initiative by Amit and Nikhil and it was an awesome experience to eat, play and network with like minded ppls who love to play tennis. Small glitch for me was qualifying for next round and then being told that I haven’t qualified as I don’t have ranking. Amit was kind enuf to let me play in lucky loser howver this part needs to be redesigned and newcomers should be given chance to go ahead… Anyways hats off to Amit and Nikhil for handling the event superbly over the 2 days and wish them all the best and hope we have more such events with proper set games in the future…
When your game gets tough U8L league gets you going. The League is very passionate about the sport on and of the court. At U8L u will breathe tennis bleed tennis and sleep tennis …for me it was a great exposure, It’s an awesome league to join as besides the game the buzz on the game days is so high ..u just can escape the adrenaline. The hospitality arranged on these days is so well organised …it feels like a tennis carnival. Three Cheers To Amit Shinde, Nikhil Rao and all behind the managing team
These tournaments are not just matches, they are festivals instead. Selfless voluntarity, Unparalleled enthusiasm, knowing one another, a platform to test your skills and level, motivation to excel, joy and cheers, and above all plenty of tennis. Way to go!! The league is an initiative of its kind. If U8L wasn’t there, wouldn’t have known so many great folks. It brings a few hundred good players on a platform, sometimes you get to choose partnerships from and U8L doesn’t change for that!!
It’s a superb initiative and a great tennis tournament for Amateurs like us. It gives us an opportunity to compete against players from different clubs in Mumbai and in the process helps us to improve our game. Though it’s an awesome league, there is still a lot of scope for further improvements. Since its still in its infancy (2nd year only), we hope that it will improvise and enhance further. Cheers.
A first of its kind tennis tournament and I was glad to be involved in season 1. Looking forward to participating in all the remaining legs of season 2!
Its an amazing concept where all amatuer club players are brought under one umbrella.
The concept of ranking points makes this an event not to be missed. It gives all of us a feeling of accomplishment and also something we look forward to.
It has definately made me a better player.
Cheers and keep it up.
Kudos to Amit and Nikhil, excellent start of new season. U8L is outstanding initiative and I wish all the best to you to take U8L to the national level.
It was a tennis carnival for 2 days. I am amazed with the energy and passion shown by Nikhil and Amit both organising and participating in the entire event. And Kudos to concept of Robin-hood which made sure the people loosing out in first round,later on never felt left out, instead enjoyed their play like they had at school times.
Keep up the great work. Looking forward for next event
The tournament was well organised, Robin Hood was a good innovation and most important there was no endless waiting. Well done Amit and Nikhil for bringing the tennis fraternity together. God Bless you . More 💪 to u
