Last Sunday HHTC members came together for the 2017 HHTC Garden Party. Hosted by Adran and Jill Akers along with the use of the Hatfield House secret garden, Team Law (Red's) took on Team Dawes (Blue's) for the Summer sports trophy!
Adrian Akers was in charge of setting up challenging games throughout the afternoon that would test the members skills to the max and decide the worthy team victors.
This consisted of:
Real Tennis Volley Rally over a net - keep ups in a row with a team mate - 3 attempts
Golf Chipping - 10 ball challenge at target net
Archery - 6 arrows total score
Darts - 9 darts total score
Football dribbling time trial
Croquet - round in the least shots
Badminton - longest clear drive
Boules - closest to the pin
Many members also pitched in to created a fabulous spread for lunch which was accompanied by an ice bar with refreshments which kept the competitors energised and hydrated for the afternoons sporting events in the fabulous sunshine.
After 4 hours of competitive play the day was eventually won by Team Law (Red's), sealing back to back defeats for team Dawes (Blue's) who's captaincy will be called into question if he suffers a hat trick of losses next year!
A huge thank you to Adrian and Jill for hosting such a fun and challenging event and to all those who attended and joined in in the activities, especially those who contributed towards the catering and helped with the setup and tidying away!
We hope to see you all next year for the HHTC Garden Party 2018!
James and Jon.
