Term 3 Week 2
How spectacular this week has been? Indeed, I think it is fair to say, that each week continues to get better and better. The weather is getting warmer, the circles are getting better and better, and the tennis continues to astound. In a week where doper extraordinaire Novak Djokovic decided that he doesn’t need a coaching staff, Warwick Tennis swam against this tide by bowing down to the leadership of Ryan and Annabel in order to fully enjoy a couple of superb social plays.
Indeed, Wednesday was full of highlights. For those of you who believe that the Coventry area has seemed brighter over the last week, you are right: Ivan’s new platinum blonde look has been illuminating the nearby postcodes for the past week. It remains to be seen whether blondes do indeed have more fun, but it certainly is a sight to behold. Our resident giraffe decided to play a bit social play while on crutches, and was surprisingly more effective than when he is able to move: possibly a strategic move to consider when he takes part in summer tournament matches. There was many a classic social play game played, and the introduction of Ryan’s new game, “eliminate the world” is proving to be a hit with everyone involved: look forward to seeing plenty of you at social play this Wednesday and Sunday for more bluff, eliminator and a wave or two!
Cam/Ron have been on fine form since becoming social secs, serving
up cracking circle after cracking circle. Circle this week was a smaller
affair than the previous week, but its intimacy led to some strong
chanting and high performance in the games. A commendation needs
to be sent out to Clement, who, by requiring a “break” from circle 6
minutes in, has probably set a new circle record!
Circle this week has the theme of Heroes, and this allows great scope
for everyone's imaginations to run wild. I know personally that Adam
Lissaman is my hero, but I’m sure you have a different one who you
would like to pay homage to. Well worth going this week, particularly
as it is the last time that circle will be running for a while due to the
small thing called exams!
Matchplay, indoors this week, also served up some classic matches,
with a celebrity appearance from Simmo’s double faulting providing some great highlights for the spectators. Over the two hours, there were plenty of great matches, with Jacko’s power hitting and Martin Slater's superb hands showing the full range of talent which Warwick Tennis has at its disposal! And speaking of talent, there are plenty of interesting results in the Summer tournaments, and this week promises the most interesting game of the tournament so far: a battle of the presidential generations in the Chirpse doubles.
Look forward to seeing you at plenty of events in the next week: hope all the revising is going swimmingly as well!
Lots of love
