Term 2 Week 5
Sit down, buckle your seat belts and get ready because I will take you on an exciting journey through everything that we, and hopefully you, have got up to this week.
Action began with all(!) teams having
matches this Wednesday: some went
better, some were “terrible” (Mooraj, 2018).
The men had some very tough matches in
which 1sts lost at home against Cambridge,
2nds drew against Nottingham and 3rds
lost to Coventry. Women's 1sts didn't even
leave Oxford the hint of a chance with a
mesmerising 12-0 win and Women's 2nds
drew against Leicester.
Some were celebrating, some were
drowning the sorrows of their mid-term
crisis in purple on Wednesday evening as
Cameron and Ronak entertained more than
30 unfamiliar and familiar faces (including some ghosts of the past) for yet another week, this time with the theme of cartoon characters and with revolutionary changes in the order of the games. Guys, some of us are too old for all these shocking innovations.
All of this week's social play action had to be packed into the Wednesday session, as on Sunday it was replaced by the Mini-Tennis Charity Tournament. Different sport clubs joined us for some matches with mini nets, mini courts, mini rackets and big talents, all for the fun and a good cause. In an extremely successful tournament with dramatic scenes and some rounds coming down to a single point, a team of part-time table tennisers and full- time cheating bastards managed to fluke their way through to the semis where they thankfully fell to the team of Lars, Arjun and friends who went on to win the whole competition. I don't think I'm qualified to say whether that confirms or not the theory we heard during the week that “you can only be good at either tennis or mini-tennis”. Water polo won the losers, sorry, plate competition, getting their share of the fame and leaving some of the stronger favourites behind.
What's coming up week 6 then? For next week bring your
best pick-up lines and all those emotional love letters and
confessions to Couples Valentines Circle: no better moment
to confess your love to your crush than after the tenth pint,
dressed up as “Famous Couples”. Luckily I've heard that if
you're unromantic, cynical, lonely or all of the above, then
you're still welcome as well.
Before circle, come support both our Men's and Women's
Teams both playing against Nottingham at home, starting at
11.30! Then on Sunday head down to Westwood again for a
great Cardio tennis session before the usual fun social play
Not to forget: Start getting hyped for Varsity! 24th of Feb,
save the date! Don't miss the most important matches of the
year, the classic duel with Coventry: rumour has it we will need strong supporters to keep our players awake as we coast to an effortless victory.
Until then, have a good reading week those of you who are lucky enough to have one. Use your time wisely for tennis, circle, and by tuning in to Warwick Tennis' wonderfully professional, informative and educational weekly radio show Martin Nav-chat-all-ova which this week features Grace and Ryan as its guests. Be the person to double the number of listeners.
That´s all for now amigos,
