ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b


GOLF Rep: Pete Neal (H, 1993-1998)

as a Society to have a wide range of silverware to play for and the handicapping system means that anyone can win.  The Golf Society attracts golfers with a wide range of abilities, from single figure handicappers to beginners. All are welcome. The Society also includes golfers across many generations with active members in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s! A recent meeting at Worplesdon attracted about 35 players and it was a great example of how the Society welcomes all and aims to be inclusive.  The School enters a side each year into the Grafton Morrish – a six-man team foursomes match play competition. 64 schools qualify for the finals, played over three days at Hunstanton and Royal West Norfolk Golf Club. For the competitive golfer, it doesn’t get much better than this! I have fond memories of a match where the Teddies final pair, under much pressure, managed to win the deciding match on the 19th hole against Sutton Valence to take us through to the next round. How can interested OSE can get in touch? We are eager to grow and always welcome new golfers. If you like the sound of some, or all, of what we get up to, please do get in touch via Alumnet. The fixture list for 2021 will be circulated in the final quarter of 2020. Join Alumnet to find out more. SQUASH / PADEL TENNIS Rep: James Dubois (C, 1960-1964) James is keen to recruit new, younger blood to strengthen the Martyrs squash group for occasional matches at Teddies. James also plays Padel tennis most days in Epsom: an excellent cross between tennis, squash and real tennis.

What did you most enjoy during your time at Teddies? Playing sport most days with great friends.  What events does the Martyrs Golf Society get involved in and what are your plans for the future? Martyrs Golf is an active society with a number of events which we run each year. We have the Spring, Summer, London and Autumn meetings, a match against the School and the Grafton Morrish, a foursomes match play competition. We play at some excellent courses including Worplesdon, Frilford Heath, North Hants, Royal Wimbledon and Beaconsfield.  The meetings range in format but are usually played over 18 holes (Stableford format) followed by lunch. Some meetings include 9 or 18 holes (foursomes) after lunch for those who are keen or are looking to walk off lunch! The London meeting played at Royal Wimbledon is held mid-summer and played in the late afternoon/evening, which makes it accessible for those working in London. We often have a putting competition on the excellent practice green after the game, accompanied by a glass or two which makes for a good atmosphere! We are fortunate


REAL TENNIS Rep: Simon Talbot-Williams (A, 1974-1979)

Real Tennis is the game from which most small ball sports were derived. It overflows with Teddies spirit because the handicap system allows men and women of all shapes, sizes and abilities to play on a completely level basis. Some have erroneously formed a view that it is elitist but, judging by the very varied characters playing for the Martyrs, this can only be because there are so few courts! All can play from any age to 90 so all are encouraged to make contact. Join Alumnet to find out more.
