Term 1 Week 9
Week 9 brought us many a messy night with Mystery Dom Tour (more on that later) and circle, while the team had more success up at Fortress Westwood.
The Men’s 1st team showed the Men’s 2’s how it’s done by continuing their unbeaten run with a 10-2 win that strengthened their promotion credentials. Everyone who attended was treated to an absolute classic (think Federer v. Nadal ’08) that really didn’t reflect the scoreline. The men’s 3’s lost a hard-fought match 8-4 up at Leicester, with Jacko particularly impressing against his hometown.
The ladies fared slightly better this week, with the 1’s smashing Cov 10-2 to avenge last year’s Varsity defeat. The 2’s, having finally made it to Leicester despite Harriet’s sat nav’s better efforts, shared the points in a tough match all round, with a timely rematch coming up next year in the cup.
Right, on to the week’s main event! Some outrageous fancy dress was on show as 30 tennisers showed up at campus Friday evening eagerly anticipating the whereabouts for the weekend, which this year (for some reason people thought we were going to Dublin?!) was in sunny Liverpool!
Social play was blighted by weather on Wednesday, but despite a hungover no-show from Hattie on the Sunday, Ronak put on a good session to attempt to prove his doubters wrong
Next week we have many a Christmas social on the calendar, promises to be class!

A very messy pres that ended with someone wetting their bed (mate, karma and that), was a signal of what was to come. Many a quad vod (why the north is infinitely better) later, we somehow made it into a club (not sure which one, but definitely not where Lissaman was) where decked in fancy dress, we shocked the locals with shameless moves. Highlights of the night; Tyrrell pulling after 5 mins in the first bar (Crawford you missed out on this one!), Gayatri finally making it on tour yet not making it out, and Ollie drowning his election sorrows passed out in a gutter.
After seeing the local culture (yeah not the north’s strongsuit) which included a very very strange modern art film (what has been seen cannot be unseen), we assembled yet again to exhibit our finest drinking form. Amongst many enlightening moments on this night we found: Jamie Brown loves coming on tour only to never actually go anywhere, Garv has a very strange mind when it comes to would you rather, Hickson seriously needs to change his belt, Liverpool clubs don’t appreciate the incredible tennis bodies on show during Baywatch, but who cares!
