Cricket News - SAC vs Thoiry CC (2/8) Match report

On Sunday 2 August Thoiry visited SAC for the second in the “best of three” John Hardy match series. After losing the first game, revenge was on the cards for Standard’s players and they were the first to bat after being put in by the visitors. Through some excellent bowling, Thoiry managed to restrict the home team to 164 runs. In return, Thoiry made light work of the opening bowling attack and chased down the total with relative ease meaning that they retained the John Hardy Shield. Needless to say, both teams enjoyed themselves and the celebrations continued in the bar afterwards. Although a dead rubber, the third instalment of the series will take place in September with Standard looking to regain some pride.

Tennis News - clay court inspection

The Tennis Comittee has undertaken a ‘Diag Technique’ of our clay courts with the French Tennis Federation experts this week.
They will be back for more tests at the beginning of winter but these preliminary tests have shown our courts to be in a much better state than we originally thought. The main message from the FTT was that they need to be watered as much as possible and preferably after every match.  Great news!
