Another scorcher ahead today and tomorrow, at least. How are you fairing? Anyone sleeping? Running your pulse points under cold water (or rubbing with an ice cube) can help – wrists, ankles, neck, backs of knees. Some are advocating a frozen ‘hot’ water bottle and even putting PJs into the freezer before putting them on. (Doesn’t that make the sheets and mattress very wet?)
Any other tips which might help someone else?
Yesterday the Monday League was in full swing – well done to all those who played and thanks to Jane for keeping every watered/tea’d/beer’d
Dave P won his MIddlesex Singles v Rob H from Ashford at Masonians 21-11. Next round on Friday but the draw hasn’t been updated yet so not sure who he’ll be playing.
Tuesday (today) at 10.30 am. Jean & Nadine go off to Hayes Bowls Club (Central Avenue, UB3 2FB – through Leisure Centre car park) to play the semi-final of the Middlesex Ladies Pairs v Wendy Franklin & partner which had to be deferred from the other weekend. Good luck!
Tuesday at 6.00 pm at Cambridge Park – National Mixed Fours as Gym, Sarah, Duncan & Dawn take on Rob H, Tina C, Anna M & Ashley T from Ashford. Unfortunately Kevin is still not able to play, so thanks to Duncan for coming in at short notice.
Wednesday – Tony Allcock Over 60s Mixed Double Rink. Away at Brentham at 6.00 pm Supporters and spectators welcome
Thursday – Jane W’s Birthday!
Also, Middlesex League v Masonians at 6.00 pm. This can be mixed and we need 9 more names. Please let me know if you’re available firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday – Ladies Fours postponed from tropical storm Monday. Sarah, Tricia, Ange and Dawn head over to Bishop Duppas to play Carole K and team at 5.00 pm. Again, supporters welcome.
Saturday – Ladies Top Club v Brentham but being played at home at 10.00 am. 50% of showers. I’m not sure if we’ll be pleased about that or not!
Sunday- Middlesex Ladies Two Wood Pairs competition. Marie, Sarah, Audrey and Cathy all have teams in so good luck to them. 10.00 am start at West Ealing. Let’s go along and give them some support.
No club matches this weekend? That seems odd.
