Tonight we were weeding and cutting back overgrown foliage at Home Park Lawn Tennis Club in Windsor. This was such a fun task. We met outside the local running club, the Datchet Dashers, where we welcomed Caroline who joined us for her third session with Windsor and Maidenhead GoodGym. Mandyhad cycled from her home whilst the rest of us met at the task. The group got stuck into a warm up and a jog around Home Park. Although it wasn’t racquet science it was still quite hard not to bump into one another in the dark!

After the run, GoodGym cracked on with serve-ing the community once again with good deeds. The team cut back the weeds on both sides of the fence refusing to “let” them have any chance of returning. We were joined tonight by returning extra Fleur the dog who took a slight detour and needed the skills of Michelle and Tony to bring her home. Meanwhile Emmamade short work of the brambles and Anne Laure took no prisoners on chopping down the nettles.

What a lovely service GoodGym provided tonight – managing to tidy up almost all four sides of the courts. After the task we completed a fun circuits round complete with tennis balls. Well done team.
