Many of you will remember squash matches at Sandown Park: · The first part of the evening is typically spent queuing up on the A3 for the long journey; · The second part involves driving round Esher several times wondering where on earth the squash club is; · Phase three involves starring silently down the dry-slope ski run, thinking of holidays ...

Spencer 1st vs Reigate 2nd

Back on Track! After last week’s mauling at the hands of Bourne the first team could have spent a week licking their wounds, talking about “challenging” court conditions, dodgy marking, lucky nicks and generally feeling pretty sorry for themselves.

Surrey League – Spencer 1 vs Surbiton 3 – Match Report

Wanted - Home for house trained South Africans I'll keep this one short and sweet.  Perhaps we should have realised from the biblical weather on Thursday that Friday was going to be a pretty shitty day.  And so it was.  The real untold ramifications of Brexit is that the South African half of the first team squad are now living above court 1 to avoid ...
