Oratory Kids Top Guns !

With Bryn's coaching the Oratory kids club players are improving with each week that passes. The video shows a few clips of them in action - its nearly 7 minutes long so be patient ( all those who attended last week are in there somewhere !). Most important however is that everyone is having fun and enjoying the game. The smiling faces tell their own story.

Here is the moment when Jonners & Julie arrived to be suprised by nearly 200 friends, professionals and supporters from the world of Real Tennis. Most suprising however was probably the lifesize cardboard cutout of Jonners waiting to greet visitors.

The old court in Bordeaux

In October 2007, a group from The Oratory took Jonners to visit Bordeaux. They found what is left of the original court which was sold in the mid 60's and the site converted into a cinema which has now been demolished in preparation for a supermarket! Roman remains have been discovered at the site so further re-building has been postponed while further excavation is undertaken.
Fortunately, Tim Tomalin was on hand with his camera to capture what may become the final pictures of this court.
