GC Eastern Region Handicap League 9th June 2023

We have now completed our second match this time against Chelmsford Blue Team led by Judith Hand. The result was a massive win of 17 against 1 for Colchester which firmly puts us at the top of the league with a 2 point lead over Maldon Lakeside, I am indebted to Alex & Marilyn Wood, Kev Croot, and Hugh Brown for a great result despite hot temperatures and hard fast courts which affected every match players game. The balls ended up yards past their target and the hoops decided not to let the balls through unless the player had at least three shots, that said we did score 122 hoops on the day.

Chelmsford home ground is not the easiest to play on as both courts are on the slope but last year I did win all my games at Writtle so it I can’t too bad. Something for me to live up too!

On another subject have you observed, Club Member, Tony White exercising his dress making skills on ‘The Great Sewing Bee’ on BBC One on a Wednesday at 9.00pm. He is making a reasonable showing against the other contestants but is tight lipped as to the result.

Round 3 to be played against Chelmsford Blue, 30th June, away in Writtle.
