CURTC Overcomes all from North & South

Posted on May 29, 2017 | in NewsTicker | by

May 20th saw the Eggs & Bacon team (MCC) arrive in Cambridge for the first leg of their ‘Fens weekend’. In spite of a last minute hiccup due to a missing bottle of white*, CURTC came out on top 5-4 after an excellent afternoon of tennis and extended lunch.

The following day, the recently reinvigorated Jesmond Dene squad were in town on the second leg of their ‘Fens weekend’. BTW, the uncertainty about the Court at Jesmond has been resolved as the Club has a long term lease on the Court and the attached house. Great news!

And last, this Bank Holiday weekend, our intrepid travellers visited Queens and came out on top 3-1, again after some splendid tennis on a Court which plays surprisingly (to me at least) differently to our trusty Green & Blue.

Results as far as I can remember, apologies for any errors…
