I don’t believe there’s any football this week. Shame about the penalties last night. Had Marcus Rashford scored, I think the other two would have too, but they didn’t and that’s sport for you. All on the day, the occasion. Did someone say the World Cup is around the corner?
Well done to Novak Djokovic in winning the Wimbledon Singles for the 6th time. A fantastic record. He had to put up a good fight though. The young Italian Berrettini should have a good career ahead of him.
More importantly than the above, congratulations to Laurence & Gordon who had a good win v Paul C & Rob R at West Ealing yesterday. This puts them into the Senior Pairs area semi-final against Steve G & Norman. Cambridge Park will be represented in the MIddlesex area final . Hooray. It’s just a shame it can’t be both pairs. The winners of the area get to represent Middlesex at the National Championships in August.
Monday – Roll ups at 10.00 am and Leagues at 1.45 pm as usual
Monday and the girls are out in force again today this time with the Middlesex Fours, with only one match at home – Jacquie’s four v Dot S from Staines.
Ann H’s girls are away at Ashford, Jean’s fours at Fordbridge Park and Dawn’s at Bishop Duppas – again!! Good luck to all playing.
Tuesday sees Sarah & Lucy back in action in the Middlesex Over 55 Pairs v Ann Bamber & partner from Bishop Duppas(!) at 6.00 pm whilst the ladies play Bishop Duppas (see what I mean!?!) in a friendly triples match at CP at 2.00 pm.
Wednesday – roll ups at 10.00 am and most of the badged girls are playing in a Middlesex v Middlesex match at Fordbridge Park. Kent had cancelled the country friendly, so this was a chance to get the county players together with those who should have received their colts and full badges in 2020 had not that season been scuppered. Audrey will be getting her Colts’ badge and Ange should be getting her full badge.
Thursday – Anything on? Henley Regatta?
Friday – Morning Roll up and Friday Night Club Night as usual. In the afternoon Dawn & Paul C are playing Rob H & Anna from Ashford in the area semi-final of the Natiomal Mixed Pairs at West Ealing.
Saturday, we have the R&B League v Mid Surrey at Cambridge Park.
I thought Hampton Court Flower Show was not as exciting as when I’ve been before. Every business has been affected by the pandemic. There were only about 12 show gardens and the allotment gardens were, well, interesting. I think Stella S should apply for next year! Still it was a different day out and it didn’t rain!. Mustn’t grumble
