On Sunday 1st of September Hhtc held its annual Summer Garden Party in glorious sunshine attended by 39 members with Team Jon Dawes (blues) taking on last years victors Team James Law (Reds) in a variety of sporting activities over the afternoon and battling it out for the legendary Garden Trophy!
This years event was kindly hosted by Martin & Gemma Richards in a fantastic setting that really made the day a special event and hopefully a new venue where the Blues could re-capture the title after a 3 year drought.
To keep the competitors refueled and hydrated there was a BBQ run by the members with master Chef Stephen Brewerton cooking up a storm accompanied by a selection of refreshing beverages such as Pimms to keep the competitors spirits up!
After 3 hours of competitive activities Team Dawes & Team Law were tied with 31 points all so it was all down to the final activity of Team Rounders to settle the day!
After many run outs and dropped catches Team Dawes managed to sneak into the lead within the last few balls to win the match by just 1.5 rounders and clinch the 2019 Summer Garden Party Trophy!
A massive thankyou to everyone who contributed to the BBQ bringing a variety of tasty home prepared & marinated dishes along with salads and desserts. We were truly spoiled throughout the afternoon! Also a big thankyou to those who helped setup and tidy up after the event and most of all Thankyou to Martin & Gemma for letting us hold the Party at their lovely home and and being such generous hosts!
We hope to see you all again next year and good luck with your Tennis throughout the season ahead!
