Club Captain’s Report

Round 8 of Sydney Badge was highlighted  last Saturday by the appearance of our new Prime Minister playing for Marrickville against our Manly Mens 6 Team.

Several State and Federal Police were in attendance as security for Mr. Albanese.

They were soon needed because in the first game Daniel hit Albo in the face with the ball.

The security were quick to ask to see Daniel’s passport and visa. Apparently they thought he might be a right wing terrorist sent from Brazil. After a brief break Albo bravely played on only to lose both sets to Daniel and Ben.

During the next two sets against Lachlan and Brett,  Albo was heckled by a Club member. The Police were quick to react again and the member was escorted back to the clubhouse.

Albo and his partner were defeated in these two sets also. Despite these setbacks Albo was happy to pose for selfies with club members and stayed for a beer and sandwiches. I believe Zali Steggal tried to see Albo also regarding her staff cuts but was ushered away by the Police.

Whilst all the entertainment was on courts 5 and 6 other matches were close contests as our

Mens 1 Lost 4-4 on games v Sydney Uni

Before the match began Sean told Boyd and Bosco that he and Cameron would win 4 sets so all they had to get was a 6 gamer! Boyd and Bosco achieved 6 games but unfortunately in 4 sets and not 1 set as needed.

Division 1 is so strong this year that games are very important as most matches are very close results.
