I ’m delighted to report a resounding OO tennis victory against the school on Sunday.
A whopping 12-4 to the oldies! Despite the score margin, the matches were of a very high quality (yes – even some of Arthur’s!)
with some lovely tennis being played and us clinching many of the matches on a tiebreak Tennis Weekend.
This was a particularly impressive feat given that we were playing in even stronger gale force winds than usual.
We had some excellent performances from our newcomers: Tom, Michael, Georges Hughes and Marment with an MVP award to Michael for winning 4/4 rubbers.
We very much hope that you won’t be put off by the horrendous conditions
(I wish I could say that it isn’t always like that but 2 Acre does seem to sit in its own wind tunnel…) and will come back next year.
Some equally stellar performances came from OO regulars Bella, Chris, Arthur, Jacky, Gordon and Tim. Bella stole the crown this year for the slowest ace – a prize which normally goes to Arthur.
I think Kyrgios himself would have been proud of the stealth with which that drop shot serve came about Tennis Weekend.
He’d also have been very proud of the brutalising forehand which Bella hit straight into her opponent’s leg. No mercy from the OOs.
It’s well known that an army marches on its stomach so big thanks to Arthur for the delicious brekky of sausage sarnies and millionaire shortbreads washed down with much coffee, and to our (p)resident chef, Charles!
Finally a big thank you to all who played and those who came along to support and of course to el capitano, Lance, for organising (you were much missed).
Those who were unable able to attend, hopefully we can prevail upon Lance to organise another bash at Lincoln’s Inn Fields over the summer.
