Leon the legend

A big thank you to Leon who has been working hard on data entry for rankings update.

BAPTISM OF FIRE

Sanjay brings his wife Dhara down to the club for the first time. We are a player short so Sanjay quickly offers Dhara as a fill in. She lasts at least one minute- Never played before -no idea of the rules- or how to hold a bat. Needless to say it was not long before she was back in the safety of the spectator area watching others play

OH ! WOW ! IT’S LIAO !- SATURDAY MORNING COACH THIS WEEK

After a long absence through illness we are proud to announce that Liao will be one of the coaches this week at Saturday coaching – He is highly regarded as a fine technician and was outstanding last time he joined our coaching ranks
Also coaching  the Saturday squad this week is Luke Blythman who coached here a few years ago and was well liked by all. We will also have Earn the Train controlling the team., Maggie the Magnificent & the Duke of Bulgaria. our court 1 specialist.

SCORE SHEET MISSING ?

Mr Luke B is the captain of the Gravy train team. He did not want to be blamed for not filling out the score sheet so he diligently & beautifully I may add, filled out the score sheet. Crossed every T. dotted every I. But we could not find the sheet ? Phil Smith was going to fill out a LOST FORM REPORT, but it was finally found. Apparently when your team looses, you don’t give a damn about handing the sheet in !

Jess Diep  Capt of her team – also forgot to hand in the score sheet – as did Clinton ! –Better than being incorrectly filled in one guesses .

THIS COMING SATURDAY 3pm

Luke Blythman and I will be representing Coburg at a 24 hour Ping pong a thon in Essendon, this coming Saturday. We will leave the club around 2-30pm and be back b y 4-30pm. We will be doing a demonstration then having a hit and talks with the people involved with this fund raiser for charity.

Talk to me if you would like to be involved
