A VA--A-A-ST turn out by Stalwart Wollstonian standards gathered at the park to play up a storm ahead of the forecast storm. We had spectators! We had players! Players QUEUEING up to play! In fact there was only one game of singles which was pretty much a warm up for the main event..
Karl and Nic and Max were first on the scene and Max and Nic fought a close battle with Max comfortably winning 21-17. Newcomers Ari and Peter teamed up with Max and Karl respectively and some excellent shots were put away with Peter and Karl taking the chukka 21-11.
Heather and India joined the gathered throng and we were looking like a party! India and Max took on Ray and Robin and defeated them in a good show of teamwork 21-15.
Nic and Robin fell apart against Ari and Heather. Robin suspected the cue was at fault. Poor form really, when the opposition clearly had the better end of it, 21-16.
Visitors from last week, Cooper and Dayton returned to take on Nic and Robin and they acquitted themselves admirably in their 21-16 defeat. They avowed they would return and avenge this pasting. With the form they were showing it could well be on!
So all in all there were eleven players and four spectators. I think that is more than all the previous seasons combined! Not really, but I have the feeling critical mass is just around the corner.
