Bristol was next on the menu. Bristol and Hardwick have a special connection - the Bristol and Bath TC played all their home matches at Hardwick before building their own court in the 1990s. The court is characteristicaly quiet and has a fire escape either side of the net so the club can hold social functions on court!
Although totally shattered, the intrepid four played on and managed two sets before championship showers underneath the penthouse. Many thanks to Kevin King, the pro for staying on and looking after us.
Gordon left his tennis shoes at the Hyde tennis club and so had to borrow a pair of shoes three sizes too big from Kevin!
We are now on the M4 racing east for some home cooking with Phyllie and Beth to recharge our batteries for the final push tomorrow.
