Andy Murray Practising at OVSC

Andy Murray having a quick practice on the courts at Oxshott last week!
Keen eyed members at OVSC might have seen Andy Murray practising his serve last week at OVSC. He also had a hit against the practise wall at the club.
In his own Facebook page he asks “Which opponent has no weakness, never misses and has never lost?”
Answer – the Wall!”

To view the video of Andy hitting on the wall or watch in slow motion his service action, visit the OVSC Facebook page at OVSC Facebook

A Warm Welcome To Downs Solicitors – A New Principal Club Sponsor

 

A Warm Welcome To Downs Solicitors – A New Principal Club Sponsor

OVSC are delighted to announce a new sponsorship agreement with Surrey based Downs Solicitors, who became one of our Principal Club sponsors on 1 August 2017.  Downs replace Mundays, who, after a long and valuable relationship, ended their sponsorship last month.

With offices in Cobham, Dorking and Godalming as well as a presence in London, Downs Solicitors is a distinguished and highly trusted legal services firm respected for the exceptional quality of their work, their no nonsense approach and the calibre of their people.   They offer the full range of legal services for both businesses and private individuals – check out their website –

www.downslaw.co.uk.

Downs have been firmly established in Dorking since 1836.  They expanded in 2005 by opening an office in Godalming and in October 2013 they arrived in Cobham following the merger with Julia Lowrie & Co.  Their Cobham offices can be found on the High Street adjacent to Farrants.

Many of you may remember Julian Harvey, who has been instrumental in bringing Downs Solicitors to the Club, as he was for many years an active member of the squash section.    We look forward to welcoming him back onto the squash courts and to seeing him and his colleagues around the club.

Keep an eye open for our new Sponsorship Benefits newsletter, which will come out in the next couple of weeks, outlining the very generous support we enjoy from our sponsors and the range of benefits available to all our members.   In return, please help us show our appreciation for these partnerships by supporting the businesses in return whenever you can.

Sun Shines on OVSC Tennis Finals Day

The Sun shone down on the OVSC Tennis Finals Day which took place recently.  Members, family and friends enjoyed a great display of tennis as well as a delicious bbq washed down with a glass or two of prosecco!

Ali Anderson, the mens captain, came through a tough singles against youngster Nathan Richelle, eventually winning in an enthralling 3 sets.  He then went on to win the Mens Doubles with partner Stephen Morris and completed his afternoon by winning the Mixed Doubles with Vikki Arkinstall.  Vikki also won the ladies singles, but just missed out on the ladies doubles with partner Claire Mcintosh, losing to Nicky Lemon and Lynne Hunt.

As well as the annual tournament finals being played the afternoon also saw the finals of the Wallis Cup tournament, which has been running all winter, where Steve Anderson and Janette Dyson won beating David Young and Belinda Shawdon.

Congratulations to Ben Godfrey

Congratulations to Ben Godfrey, a member of the Squash section at OVSC who represented Reed’s School recently in the National Schools Squash Trophy 2017 at the Manchester Squash Centre.  Reed’s made it to the final but were unfortunately beaten.  However, we are pleased to say that Ben won both his games in the final and in the semi-final.  This achievement was all the greater as Ben is only 12 and was competing in the U15 competition!

Awards at OVSC

John Watkins and Edith Skelton, stalwarts of the Cricket Section (MOCC) and the Netball section resepctively, were the hugely deserving recipients of the Mundays Volunteer of the Year award and the Savills Long and Distiguished Service award at the OVSC AGM on Tuesday evening.

John has worked tirelessly to grow the colts section at MOCC over the last couple of years with fantastic results, while Edith has devoted time and energy for many years to ensure the netball section has grown and thrived. Both our well deserving heroes of OVSC are always the first to volunteer their time and energy and we thank them unreservedly. Neither the cricket section nor the netball section would be half as successful without them. John and Edith we salute you!
