Auriol finished in joint third place in the Tons League, a Mens Triples league comprising 11 clubs in the area. This is a highly creditable performance as it's our first season competing in this League. Congratulations to all those who represented the club in this series.
.. and Racal Decca Mixed League
where we finished in a strong fourth place, behind a very tight 3-way fight between Ember, Ewell Village and Cheam, with just one point separating the three. Again, our thanks to all those club members who put their names down to play in these matches.
The Members Cup match took place on Tuesday 4 May with all 18 members who were available making up three triples. Congratulations to the winning team of Alan Green, Brenda Lisney and David Ganney, who won by an impressive margin of 63-35.
The Members Cup event is an opportunity to remember and play tribute to members who are no longer able to play or who have passed away.
