Report of an AC doubles competition at Roehampton

Over the weekend of 19-20 May 2018, I played in an AC doubles competition at Roehampton with Kevin Carter, who is a member at Surbiton. The weather was just right – blue sky and not too hot. The lawns were in good condition and were much faster than our lawns at Harwell. Fortunately, I got used to them pretty quickly. Kevin and I won all of our five matches and hence we won the competition, which has a silver trophy as the prize. Unfortunately, the club requires that trophy stays in the club house, but it will have our names engraved on it. As a result of the win, my handicap has been cut from 24 to 18, which seems fair to me.  Peter Allan
