Term 1 Week 2
After the chaos and madness of week 1, Warwick Tennis has had a wonderful second week, and with many new and old members getting fully involved – the club is well and truly back in swing!
This week saw the teams back in action with all five of our teams playing their first matches of the season! They all had a really successful week. Many of you came out to watch the Mens 1st v Mens 2nd at Fortress Westwood, after all the hype around it. The match was won by the first team – a confident start to the season, however the second team didn't go quietly with some truly spectacular tennis on show from all. The Mens 3rd team was also at home, playing some ‘unreal’ tennis, and beating Trent. Special mentions to a BIG performance from Nick Fremont winning the last match, and shout out to Imran, one of the new Freshers for playing well on his debut, going down fighting over 3 sets.
The women also had a great week. Strong win from the Women’s 1st 10-2 against Coventry #smashthepoly. Looking promising for Varsity! Well done to Grace and Nikita for confident wins in their first BUCS match – keep it going girls! The 2nd had an eventful trip up to Lincoln, only to have the match postponed due to the rain, with our girls in the lead. The match should be rescheduled for after Christmas, when the girls can crack on with their victory!
Social play was again extremely well attended, as we welcome many new Fresh into the club. Despite a short delay thanks to the horrendous storm, everyone battled the elements with games of 20+1, eliminator, waves and bluff, a great time was had by all! Shock of the day that Ivan made it to top court for bluff which just goes to show with a little bit of commitment, anything can happen!
Gamble circle led to great involvement from all that attended, with a variety of challenges and games. Highlights included a surprise spontaneous return from our old social secs, many a race to the bar, and pints being seen off… with mouths! (Who would believe it!)
Next week will be huge as Bring Your Own Fresher (BYOF) returns! We hope the Fresh are as excited as we are for what should be a great night. See you at 7pm in the Copper Rooms – don’t be late, and if you are coming please press going on the event so we know numbers!
Have a good week,
Love The Exec xoxo
