It’s not very often that I wish for October to come but we are now half-way between Summer and Winter Leagues and we are keen to take up the competition the new season will bring to our 4 teams. So not wasting our many talents, we continue to hone our skills on Saturday mornings under the watchful eyes of Simon and John. Between them they seem to have unleashed strong competitive streaks especially with Pep and Ati!
We had a fun competitive session one Wednesday evening when 12 of the regulars turned up and we worked in teams of 3. It was very enjoyable (as well as keenly fought) with some challenging mini games. We all look forward to more of these events.
Summer League finished off with great final results: The 3rd Team won their division, the 2nd team were runners-up in their theirs. We had some great individual performances as well with Dympna, Ingrid and Helen being top scorers who let few games go past them. Our annual prize giving saw the awards going as follows: Veterans’ Cup Siobhan; Doubles Trophies Dympna & Ingrid; Summer League Cup Janet; and Top Performer Winter & Summer Helen. As usual superb catering from Christina – and we wish her a speedy recovery from the operation on her wrist.
A special welcome to Steph who joins the squad with a murderous forehand! Interested players are always welcome to turn up on a Saturday at 10am for coaching or a Wednesday evening at 6.30 for match practice (this is marked as Men’s match practice but it’s a misnomer)
