Old club members retrieved their rackets from where they left
them last March. Also, we welcome some new members, who (or
possibly whom) we hope will enjoy their season with us.
Friday 16th November
Twenty-five souls braved the drizzle and mist to turn out for
this event. Quizmaster (or perhaps mistress) Debbie Baker fed out
the questions and by the penultimate round, only a few points
separated the teams. The decider was the James Bond set,
where the Jackson 5 displayed a worryingly encyclopedic knowledge
of Bond babes and villains to finish first on 135 points. Graham
Baker thanked Debbie Baker and Linda for their help, and those who
donated prizes for the raffle.

Christmas Fun Tournament
Joviality reigned as the handicap tournament took place, leading
to a win for Ruth & David, below.
Jenny & Steve kept the scoring close but not quite close

Graham Baker and Linda, inexplicably not dressed up in Santa
and Elf costumes, brought the evening to a close by dispensing presents from a Big Bag of Stuff.
Sunday 23rd December
Reported just before Christmas was Hannah's planned swim of 650 lengths
at Sidmouth pool. This was to raise funds for her work experience trip to
Prague. We never doubted her for a moment, and our confidence was rewarded
when she completed the task. She said 'it was quite difficult', but then
worthwhile achievements often are. So, sponsors, it's time to get your
wallets and purses out.
Wednesday 27th March
End of Season Tournament
My intrepid reporter reports that a good crowd of members and
visitors arrived for the event, giving an enthusiastic atmosphere for
the evening. Graham Baker organised the handicaps, which ensured many
close and exciting games. Eventual tournament winners were the team of
Nick Gidley and Paul Carter.
