25th Apr 2016 : Friendly against John Lewis
For the last friendly match of the season, Barnes hosted John Lewis in an epic battle. Four of the matches went to 3-2 with only John at no. 2 proving ruthless with a 3-0 win. Gerry and Paul at 5 and 4 traded blows with obdurate opponents, Gerry slipping to defeat and Paul coming through a nervy finale. David at 1 and Euan at 2 both came back from 0-2 down to win as Barnes team's legendary fitness shone through, or perhaps it was opponents giving up through tedium or desperation to get to the bar. We retired to the clubhouse with a healthy 4-1 win under our belts, soon to be joined by exceptionally filling lasagne and beer. From there the evening was a never-ending joy of chat, yarns and time spent crowded around David's phone looking at photos of the fleshy growths that a doctor has extracted from his head. Simple pleasures, and slightly gruesome. That's it for friendlies until October, as we give way to the serious business of the Surrey leagues. You could join the squad for next season's friendlies - look out for the plea for players which goes to all members in June. The evenings are fun and very social and the more players we have, the better.
Every Wednesday 7pm : Barnes Squash Clubnight
Members and visitors are always welcome at clubnight. This is a good opportunity to test your skills against a variety of opponents and also a great way to meet other squash players.
