The Summer Garden Party.

This year’s Summer Garden Party on 12th July was a great success and we would like to thank all those who attended and helped make it a fun evening. It might have been a disappointing World Cup, but that didn’t stop the residents of Queens Club Gardens knowing how to party. The sun shone, the drinks flowed and the band played well into the evening with lots of residence dancing and having a merry time.

Ben and Alan Hill  

Thank you to you all those who made a contribution to Ben and Alan Hill after their accident, they were clearly touched by your generosity and I hope you have all seen the thank you letter which is on the notices boards.

QCG Round Robin Tennis Tournament.

The tournament has been having matches all summer and last weekend the ladies finales took place with Rowena Chowdrey taking the ladies crown against Phyllipa Mcshane, Phyllipa conceded in the 2nd set after 6-1 defeat in the 1st set.

The men’s finals took place at 3pm on Sunday with Alex Elletson winning 6-3, 6-3 against Jean Parodi in front of a small, but very keen group spectators

For more result, you can take a look at the QCG Tennis Ladder:


August 17th

This is the second successive year that Rowena has run this tournament for the Gardens. Like last year, it was a great success with many QCG residents and their friends participating in the round robin matches in the morning.

Fortunately, Rowena had just called ‘time’ on this round of matches when the skies opened and a torrential downpour ensued. The planned mass picnic under the big tree was replaced by an impromptu indoors lunch at 1a Playfair for all players and IT experts. With no delay, the knock out rounds began. James Falkner and Marine Ducarouge became the champions after winning the deciding tie-break 12-10 in a close fought and thoroughly entertaining tennis duel against David Andrews and Helen Whateley.

Rowena would like to personally thank the following people for their much appreciated help in making the day happen and it being a success:

– Sarah Hancy and Trevor Fowell for ensuring the computer programme worked like clockwork

– Ines Forner for inviting so many players to participate

– Everyone for a great lunch.  Especially Anna Morrogh and her boyfriend for inviting hungry competitors into their lovely home.

– Eppie & ili Andrews for designing and drawing the brilliant poster ( second year running ) and for Eppie presenting the prizes to the winners and runners up
