Karakal Demo Evening

The squash section enjoyed a Karakal Demo evening on Monday 7 October. Members were given the opportunity to try out lots of different rackets and to get some expertise advice from Pete Cossey, the Karakal rep.

Every Monday evening the squash section holds a mix in session for members to play other members. The evening is run by the club’s squash pro, Peter Crossman.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Keen to support such a worthwhile cause, OVSC held a coffee morning on Friday 27th September as part of Macmillan’s World Biggest Coffee morning challenge. A fantastic array of cakes were very generously baked and donated by several OVSC members, and the morning was supported by both members of the Club and OVSC’s Principal Sponsor, Down’s Solicitors. Thanks to all who so kindly donated their time (and considerable baking skills!) which enabled us to raise over £350.

100 Years Celebrations

A fun afternoon and evening was held on Saturday 14 September to celebrate the Club’s 100 years.

It was a beautiful sunny evening with 40 tennis members taking to court – some dressing up for the occasion. Players were split into teams named after tennis players from different eras. Matches followed a format based on trying to win as many points as possible and each person serving only got 1 serve, which proved interesting!

Ali Anderson’s team – “Virginia Wade” with Joan Mockford, Kasia Chapman and Karen Budd were victorious beating “Fred Perry’s” team by 3 points.

The tournament was followed by an evening BBQ and dancing to club members’ band, the aptly named “Racquet Abuse”!

Thanks to Kim and Susan Joseph who organised the event and to everyone who helped make it happen.
