Association retains Wellesley Trophy with victory over Eton

We are delighted to report that we retained the Wellesley Trophy against Eton last Wednesday evening at Queens Club in a well contested match with a convincing victory of 5.5 to 0.5. Thanks very much to all of those who played.

The highlight of the fixture was our ‘marquee’ singles match between our No. 1, John Prenn, who beat Eton’s No. 1, Horatio Cary, by a score of 9-6. It was an excellent & pulsating match to watch fully of excellent rests, especially the 3rd game of the match which alone lasted for 20 minutes! A fantastic achievement as John was giving away a couple or so years to Horatio who is 23 years old!

All in all we had an excellent evening of Real Tennis followed by a cosy dinner in the Club Restaurant for 25 of us many with our better halves.

Finally a reminder of our annual dinner at Boodles which this year will be on Tuesday 15 May 2012.
