100 Year Anniversary of Fives at Aldenham
Aldenham celebrated the centenary of the Fives Courts this half term. The courts have produced many fine players over the years including national champions and the historic landmark was marked with two fixtures.
In late September the School took on the might of the Heath Club, a collection of players dominated by OAs. The Heath maintained their dominance to win each match down to fifth pair. It was always going to be a struggle against seasoned veterans who play each week. Advice was dished out alongside some pizza to end a thoroughly enjoyable evening for all concerned.
The second fixture against the Eton Fives Association was a more successful occasion in terms of results and equally enjoyable on the night.
The two fixtures were a wonderful way to celebrate Fives at Aldenham which continues to go from strength to strength. Let’s hope the next 100 years brings even more success than the previous century.
