Captain's Newsletter - 4 July 2021

Great sporting week with tennis fans seeing British wildcard Emma Raducanu get through to the last 16 at Wimbledon, and England's brilliant win against Germany followed by victory in Rome against Ukraine - its coming home! Not to mention last Sunday, when we saw 27 Chesfield Downs ladies head off to Staverton Park for the rescheduled ‘Away Weekend’. Unfortunately, the weather was not kind to us but this did not deter Chesfield from the fun filled agenda planned by our amazing organisers Nikki & Nicola. Chesfield ladies did us proud in their allocated ‘country team’ colours, bearing flags, and masses of team sprit. Great weekend, would recommend you get your name down early for next years epic event!
