The annual men's match against St George's Hill was played on June 21 st .  Pretty typically, the longest day of the year, mid-June, mid-summer - was cloudy and rainy.  So instead of playing on the lovely grass courts, we played on hard and synthetic grass surfaces.  The recurrent  symptom for the 45 Club was the difficulty experienced by the organiser Merete, and Captain David Lloyd to get a full team.  So in the end we were short of 1 pair even after David Lloyd had persuaded a couple from his club to come to the rescue.  The match was highly competitive with some outstanding results for the 45 Club to pinch overall victory by just 5 games.  As always, St George's Hill is a wonderful venue with facilities and a setting that cause those who have plaid in this fixture to be at the head of the queue to play again.  We thank St George's Hill for their warm hospitality.
