Ashby hosted Nottingham in a Semi Final of the Secretary Shield competition. In the morning Ashby took the first win in a quick victory in the doubles +23. In the two singles games Ian Draper won the next game +19, having a lovely first ball break using 4 bisques. In the battle of the Judiths, with Judith Rowe playing her first ever AC game it was a close match all the way through with Judith Moore taking a lead at the end of the game winning it +8T. Going into Lunch Nottingham where 2-1 up with all to play for.
The afternoons games started with Omied hitting on 4th ball and going around without using a bisques and leaving himself 3 for the 2nd ball after a miss from Nick. Omied finished the game off quickly, winning +26 in 36 mins, giving Nottingham only one more game to win to get to a 3rd Secretary Shield final in a row. In the other game on lawn 1 Roger managed to get the ball wedged in hoop 1 and after some investigation realised the ball was larger than all the other and swapped it for a ball in another set. It was a nice close match but Arthur managed a victory for Ashby +3. With Ian Draper winning comfortably +24 it left Judith to finish the day off with a win for Nottingham +11 giving Nottingham a 5/2 win and chance to defend their title against Enfield in the final

Our Mary Rose team beat Wrest Park in a very evenly balanced match, to play Hurlingham in the final at Surbiton on Saturday 5th October. The doubles and Omied Hallam's singles finished quickly in our favour, but Peter Death's morning game was pegged down at lunchtime, with him two hoops ahead. We only took one of the afternoon singles, to level the match at 3-3, so the game was resumed, in rather damp conditions, with everything hanging on it. Peter got to peg and peg, with his opponent still for 1-B and 4-B, but elected to roll to the peg and peg one ball out, thus foregoing his lifts, rather than play a drive and keep both balls on if the forward ball missed (the line favoured by his son!). His opponent hit, and, between several close shots at the peg, reached 3-B and Rover before getting cross-wired, giving Peter a chance lag up to the peg.

Works will then begin on University Boulevard from its junction with East Drive (the south entrance to the University of Nottingham) down to the Tennis Centre. There will be lane restrictions on University Boulevard with a temporary 20 mph speed limit in place while these works are taking place, for safety reasons.Jesse Boot Avenue will also be temporarily closed, with access to the Tennis Centre and the Science Park available via George Green Way, which will be made into an entrance and exit for traffic using traffic controlled signalised traffic lights.
