We were honoured to be chosen by the England International AC Squad as the venue for their training weekend on August 7-8. They will doubtless have felt they made the right choice, as play at both Hurlingham and Surbiton was abandoned for the day on Saturday morning with the lawns underwater following torrential morning downpours.
In contrast, Ealing’s superbly draining lawns proved more than equal to the challenge. By late morning, when the sun made a welcome appearance, it was impossible to tell there had been any rain at all.
Many thanks to Isobel, Pauline and Carole for stepping in to provide the catering over the weekend, ensuring the players were kept fed and watered. And to Stuart Webster for mowing the lawns in the rain on Saturday morning.
