We gathered by the tennis courts for a rematch with the infamous wrongly-laid Sydney Gardens path.
This epic battle started with a strong opening set back in May and some strong opening service sending the old path down the lines into storage ready for the next play.
A stunning comeback in the second set delivered the path back to its rightful location to level the score.
For this third set we had three enormous bags of hogging which needed transporting (the deliverers had clearly heard we know our way around a wheelbarrow at GoodGym Bath and had handily delivered them to the far side of the park for us) to top off the path so that hopefully it’ll finally be Game, Set and Path to us!
Today’s play featured some mixed doubles with Dan and Ellie covering the side-lines and tidying up some of the borders, while the rest of the team took up the wheelbarrows between us to serve up some ace delivery of the majority of the topping onto the path.
The night was drawing in though, and these tennis courts aren’t covered so eventually we had to stop play with the match still in the balance.
Tune in for the next instalment (or come along and join in!) to see how this delicately poised matchup turns out…

New Task at 'The Wick'
Our task for this evening’s group run (and walk!) was to help prepare the Eton Wick Youth Centre for opening for the first time since the pandemic began. We didn’t even know there was a Youth Centre hiding behind Eton Wick Library, so it was a lovely surprise to be invited to help with this project.
Somewhere under a rainbow…
Our session started with a scenic and sociable walk and run along the Thames Path from Windsor Leisure Centre to Eton Wick. It rained just enough to give us a very faint rainbow and to cool us down after a hot and humid week. Thanks to Clara and Louise, who led the 6 walkers on their 2km route. As they set off I warmed up the runners, and then we followed in their footsteps, adding on the odd ‘long cut’ along the way so that we all arrived at our destination within a few minutes of each other.
Getting out of the Bath
We were greeted on arrival by GoodGym Taskforce member Laura, who was visiting from Bath. Laura used to live in our area and we have really missed her since she moved, so it was great to see her on her hols.
We were then welcomed by our lovely task owners, Claire and Helen from Eton Wick Village Association and we quickly set to work:
Time flew and it wasn’t long before we had to say our goodbyes and head back to our start location. The return journey was similarly chatty and scenic, with the added bonus of blackberry picking along the way.
There is more work to be done so we look forward to returning for more Wick-ed adventures!

A collaborative run report.... Drop your photos and stories here 🙂
We're going to put the FUN back into functional!!
Keep up the great work everyone.
Where's the best place to go in a heatwave? Turns out it's the Peak District to spend time with like minded, positive people. Plus easy access to shady woods and a river to swim/dip into.
From serious chats around future GG plans, safeguarding, inclusion, participation, Task Force and sustainability to great opportunities to be active with runs, walks, fitness & yoga. There was also lots of time to meet other GoodGymers from around the country and have fun with Quizzes, karaoke and cocktails!

After Manuel’s fantastic disco karaoke experience, the best title I can come up with is “It’s Fun to Stay at The YHA”
