Happy Easter Everybody!
Squash: Team 2 played their last match of the season at La Garenne last night, but, with only 3 players, lost 3/2. They finish 7th in their league of 11 teams.
What been happening
Last Sunday, the adult Footballers took on Les Italiens for the last home game of the season. It was a very entertaining game, but Les Italiens scored more goals, winning 5-2.
Thursday 18th saw some Scottish Country Dancing - (just some wild skirling and reeling - not a haggis to be seen - they're out of season!)
Also on Thursday, a small party of members went to watch the French National Real Tennis team playing exhibition matches at the Jeu de Paume & Squash Club in Paris.

Last Sunday was the last adult Football game of the season to be played at home. It was a very entertaining game against Les Italiens, who unfortunately won 5-2. That really wrapped up a most enjoyable season, with the membership looking healthy and having a great atmosphere among our own players and with our opponents. We have another away game on the 26th May away in Chaville against Los Pipos.
