Over 80 sponsors and members cheered on England in their match against Sweden on Saturday afternoon in the inaugural OVSC Sponsors’ Tea Party. A fabulous array of cakes, generously baked by various members, accompanied cups of tea and glasses of Prosecco as the 1st XI cricket match against local rivals Cobham Avorians ground to a halt at 3pm to allow the cricketers some much welcome respite from the blistering sun to enjoy watching the football as well. Spurred on by the England football team, the 1st XI took to the field again after the final whistle and in a thrilling nail-biter of a match posted their 5th win of the season.

Oxshott Tennis Finals Day Successes
The sun shone, the bbq sizzled and the tennis was superb at the Tennis Finals Day at Oxshott on Saturday!
First to take to court was the Mens Singles and Ladies Singles matches. It was great to see youngster Nathan Richelle playing relative youngster Jonnie Gabriel in a hard fought 2 sets which saw Nathan the eventual winner.
Meanwhile, Lynne Hunt and Vikki Arkinstall slogged it out in a thrilling 2 sets and championship tie break match. In blisteringly hot conditions, they were slightly helped by a cooling breeze, and their umpire Rod Stevens who also turned ball boy! Lynne was the eventual winner.
The Mens Doubles saw Jonathan Fourie and Steven Morris beating youngsters Dom Morley and Jonnie Gabriel, whilst in the Ladies Doubles in a repeat, but reversal of last year’s final result, Vikki Arkinstall and Claire McIntosh beat Lynne Hunt and Nicky Lemon.
The Mixed Doubles was won by Lynne and Ross Hunt.
Vets Mens Doubles was won by Graham Crowder and Ian Marsh.
The Wallis Cup Finals were also played but are reported on separately.
Congratulations to all winners and thank you to everyone who came to support on the day.
