CURTC Crumbles at the last…

CURTC, 3-4, HHTC
Hatfield House TC were in town on Saturday, and what a gripping day of tennis it was. Seven Singles matches were on the schedule and three went to 5-all, 40-all in the 3rd set. Kudos to Gillian Moore for winning her match in this fashion and commiserations to Howard Richardson and Andrew Snodgrass (after a 2+ hour epic with all three sets ending 6-5) who didn’t. Anthony Bailey & Nick Heath were the other CURTC winners but sadly David Hope lost the deciding match (in the third set of course) to give HHTC a 4-3 overall victory.
Then it was on to the main business of the day, Lunch. CURTC match managers are a creative lot in the kitchen but Andrew & David pushed up the bar another notch with their menu of MacCheese+ and Focaccia followed by massive amounts of 4:3:2 Crumble. In fact CURTC now boasts two Crumble makers of the highest class so a Crumble Rumble
is definitely on the cards.
Thanks are due to our sporting visitors along with Peter, Simon and Kees who not only marked but made sure the whole schedule made sense (Peter) and applied some key mid match repair to a recalcitrant calf (Kees).
Finally, some pictures of the lunchtime attractions…
