Term 1 Week 2
Hello all! Hope we are all settled back into Uni life by now. Week 2 was a busy one for the club with lots happening on and off the court. Matches were won, poker was played and pints were downed… this week was a big one.
This week saw the start of the BUCS season with both
the men and women in action. The Women’s First Team
took on a strong Cambridge 1st Team; a tough first
match of the season. The team lost to the side last year,
however this did not faze them. The singles were tied
at 2-2 with extremely close results. The girls smashed
the doubles winning in tight matches to allow Alice W
and myself and Malina with fresher Rachael to deliver
an 8-4 win for Warwick!! The second team will be in
action against Coventry next week and the firsts will be
away to Oxford. Good luck girls!!
The men were also in action this week in a clash of the
Titans… aka Warwick 2nd team vs Warwick 3rd team.
There were some great performances by the men this week. Special mention has to go to Ben and Matthieu who turned their doubles around by coming back from 6-1 5-3 behind to winning the final two sets 7-5, 10-6. The match ended 8-4 in favour of the second team. Good luck to the men for the season ahead. The firsts are in action for the first time this season against Cambridge away and the seconds will travel to play Coventry. Get down to Fortress Westwood to see the thirds in action against Nottingham Trent and support your Uni!
We also had our first Circle theme of the year in the form of “Around the world”. There were a lot of Hawaiian shirts on display, as well as other body parts… and some decided to go for the witty approach such as going as the moon by drawing one on their face. Once again Cameron and Ronak delivered a rowdy circle that I’m sure left lots of people worse for wear on Thursday morning and beyond. Next week is Bring Your Own Fresher Circle so if you have a spare ticket, make it known! Freshers find an older member and get yourself a seat in what promises to be a memorable circle.
Thursday saw the club divided with a Girls Cocktail Night venturing from Las Iguanas to Turtle Bay and a Boys Fifa and Poker night as Ronak’s house. However, we sorted the gender divide by gathering at the boys for a tennis house party. It was a fun night by
all accounts, however some had a little too much fun by downing a
bottle of prosecco and drinking their weight in cocktails before they
even arrived at the house…
There was a massive turn out at social play once again and we saw
lots of new faces! Thank you all for coming, and make sure you buy
your club memberships for next week. This weekend also saw the
return of Match Play which was in high demand so thank you all for
coming! Get your name down for next week too as the slots fill up
Next week promises to be a mad one with Bring Your Own Fresher
Circle and Kasbah on Friday – tickets for that will be available soon
so keep checking the FB page! And don’t forget social play on
Wednesday and Sunday and best of luck to those playing matches!
Love your exec xoxo
