Thy Hyde, near Bridport

A lovely journey through Hardy country along the Jurassic coast saw us arrive at the Hyde tennis court near Bridport, meeting resident professional Ben, son of Chris Ronaldson and Hardwick member David Marchwood who was just finishing a game of singles.
The court fell into disuse for much of the 20th century and was used as a cowshed and by the /american army to store tanks. For the second time today we made the mistake of playing three sets instead of two. The standard of play refelected this!
Windy roads north to the M5 for the final court of the day. Now travelling up the M5 towards Bristol with the sun setting...
