Open Triples Competition - Report

Our Open Triples competition took place on Sunday August 25th. and was a great success. The event took place in 32 degree heat, which was significantly warmer and drier than last year’s event. The competition was won by a team from Alex Beehive, led by Jane Cullum with a team from Coleridge, led by Janet Owen in second place. Third place was taken by a team from Foxton led by James Hickey. Please see the Gallery tab for pictures of the event.

Everybody appeared to enjoy the day immensely. A massive thanks to all the club members who helped both before and on the day, in particular the ladies in the kitchen who delivered yet another superb lunch, catering for nearly 100 meals in total.

Meldreth League Final - Report

After winning our section of the Meldreth League for the second year in a row, we met Sawston A in the Final on Sunday 8th. September. After winning the cup last year, a strong Sawston side gained their revenge this year by winning by 15 shots. A great achievement by everybody, though, to get to the final again.

Club AGM - Brief Summary

Rod Sell retired as C & D Division 1 Captain after serving 22 years in that position. Club Chairman Arthur Andrews presented him with a bronze statue of a racehorse in appreciation of his services to the club.

New Officers and Captains were appointed. See Contacts page for details.

The club is to proceed with procuring funding for new changing rooms to be sited to the left of the existing clubhouse. As a separate exercise, a centenary project was started to determine the feasability of a new clubhouse.

As part of the club’s centenary celebrations in 2022, a home and away fixture with the Chelsea Pensioners has been arranged.

Due to a number of cancellations and a general lack of interest, it was agreed that, with a couple of exceptions, no more Sunday Friendly matches or Ladies Friendlies would be played.
