“Sometimes, things don’t go, after all, from bad to worse; sometimes the sun will melt a field of sorrow that seemed hard frozen. Sometimes all goes well.” Sheenagh Pugh
After all the sorrow involved in the Pandemic and notwithstanding the cruel tragedy that is the invasion of the Ukraine, it is heartening, at least in the Jesters community, that the green shoots of normal activity have sprung up around the world. This could not be better demonstrated than by reading the attached reports from both our UK games representatives and our overseas branches. It would appear from these that the sports which we promote and love are thriving again after two years in part hibernation and I am sure that not only our physical but also our mental health is better for it.
The sporting triumphs and disasters of last season are mentioned in the various reports so they are not repeated here but, for this scribe, random highlights of the UK season were those splendid squash matches against the Scottish Jesters and also the Hong Kong Jesters, the Jesters tournament finals at the RAC, the now famous Scottish Tour of our Rugby 5’s stalwarts, our lovely contests against The All England Club where we are still trying to persuade them to build both squash courts and a real tennis court at SW19, the triumph of our rackets pair in the World Championship final and padel tennis galore.
Our annual dinner at the RAC was well attended despite a few last minute Covid drop outs; it opened with our former ambassador to Slovenia most poignantly reciting the Ukrainian national anthem in fluent Ukrainian (together with a translation) to considerable applause. We were entertained brilliantly by our speaker, Richard Graham MP, who not only amused us with stories of his multifaceted life but also on a serious note emphasised the importance of us caring for refugees whether from the Ukraine, Afghanistan, Syria or elsewhere. The Graham family were celebrating three generations of Jesters within the family; they are not alone in this (the Campbells and the Vallats in the UK, the Stewarts in Philadelphia and the Barrows in Johannesburg spring to mind as other three generation Jesters families and the writer is sure that there are several others); do please let us know who you are so that we can celebrate your achievement. It is not thought that there are yet any fourth generation Jesters but hopefully there may be by the time of our centenary in 2028.
Having been stymied for a year or two, it is pleasing to see that Jesters tours in all directions are taking place again. The South Africans are going to Canada in September whilst the Americans are coming to the UK at the same time. Just to confuse things, a UK team is also going to the United States in late September (this having been postponed for the last 2 years) and the UK are going to Australia to play real tennis in November. It is clear that everyone has missed travelling; apart from these official tours, several more minor excursions are taking place to Ireland, France, Switzerland and elsewhere.
Please note that the Canadians are celebrating their 75th Jubilee in Toronto from 25-28th May 2023 and all our welcome to attend; if we all go, it should be an unforgettable party.
In our normal fashion when welcoming an overseas touring side, we will be enjoying a weekend of sport, good food and drink and bonhomie in Cambridge at the beginning of September; the writer appreciates that this may have happened by the time you receive this report but, if not and you want to attend, please contact our Chairman, Stephen Finch pdq.
As ever, a sincere vote of thanks go to all our match managers without whom our fixtures would not take place. If any of you in future would like to arrange a match against your school, university, club or corrective institution, do please let your games representative know, as we are always keen to broaden the scope of our fixture list and involve younger match managers.
Without the worries of staff and premises, the club’s finances remain in good heart and our thanks go to our ex-treasurer Aqib Kadar for all his hard work; he has handed over to Eamonn Price who assures us that he has things under control but making him the Jester of the Year should guarantee this! We would also like to thank both Paul Robbins and James Tilston on their retirement from the committee for their respective sterling contributions over the years (Richard Johnson having now replaced Paul).
In conclusion, the writer, whilst reflecting on the vagaries of international sport, is saddened that financial considerations appear to have overridden the moral compass of some professionals and their sports (viz. the Saudis attempt to buy and split the world of professional golf, the holding of the football World Cup in Qatar, the sad decision not to include squash in the Olympics whilst admitting such activities as breakdancing and the attitude of the tennis professional associations over Wimbledon’s understandable ban on Russians and Belarussians). In the light of these developments, it seems evermore important that the ethos and credo of the Jesters should continue to burn brightly in a world of sport where the money increasingly dominates the agenda. As Hilaire Belloc wrote “there is nothing worth the wear of winning but laughter and the love of friends”; for the writer, that pretty much sums up what the Jesters is about and long may that we continue to flourish !
Richard Johnson reports for UK Squash I’m writing this at what feels like the changing of British summer sporting fortunes. England seem to have recalled that they are a cricketing nation of great repute and should perform as such, sadly only after 5 series lost on the trot; the Commonwealth games fast approach, and Wimbledon has kicked off in its usual stylish fashion. I can’t escape thinking, however, that it is an odd year to take over a squash report. The 2021-2022 squash season started amidst a large degree of confusion and uncertainty – largely over how we could, and whether we would, return to the previous norm of regular squash after a season decimated by Covid.
Fortunately, my experience is that many have managed a largely unaffected season. The occasional drop-out for sure, and finally a good enough reason to hold up for lack of fitness or smashing a perfect ball into the tin.
By all accounts, the Jesters have managed a fine number of matches across the season despite any limitations and hesitations that many clubs had.
The Strawson-Vaughan Memorial Match took place once again, although it was a rather one-sided affair I am told. The professionalism and dedication, on and off court, of England Juniors has definitely increased exponentially in the past decade; and I fear that their preparation for matches such as this is slightly different from some of our wisened veterans. Thankfully, I believe the Jesters will always have the upper hand when it comes to the dinner afterwards – although I look forward to being proven wrong on the scoreline in the near future.
Similarly, the annual Jesters tournament took place in its usual February spot, with the Men’s event at The Royal Automobile Club once again, and the Ladies’ event continuing its strong showing at The Queen’s Club. Congratulations to both the Ladies’ winner, Kim Hay, and the defending champion and Men’s winner, Jamie Wilde.
Kim Hay took the competition in fine style without dropping a game. Jamie Wilde had a harder time, taking the title in another epic final with Luke Bishop. Wilde took the match 3-2 in well over an hour, after going 2-1 up with the final two games both heading to 10-8, one each way. Special thanks to Tim Garner for his efforts organising the tournament, as well as to Peter Chalk for all his contributions across over 40 years.
The Jesters annual dinner was held at the Royal Automobile Club in March, with many Jesters in attendance. A wonderful occasion, it also marked Eamonn Price being awarded the Jester of the year award. This comes after a very successful 30-year stretch of playing in Jesters matches, multiple trophies at the Jesters Annual Tournaments over the years, as well as finally winning the big prize of taking on the position of Treasurer for the Club!
Another busy season awaits, with Henry Prideaux continuing his exceptional work with over 70 fixtures scheduled for the coming season. A much delayed tour to the USA finally approaches, with the UK Jesters surely looking forward to an exceptional time. The USA Jesters are sure to be exceptional hosts, and the schedule is enough to make anyone envious. I end this with the hope that our next season feels a little more normal, and look forward to all the Jesterly achievements forthcoming across the next 12 months.
Ronald Pattinson and Will Skjøtt reports for Eton Fives Last year’s report was easy because there was in fact nothing to report. This season has been a bit of a curate’s egg, if one is going to be upfront, truthful, and full of integrity! We only played a few matches but those that were played were done so in the normal Jesterly style. On the matter of Eton Fives generally a lot has been happening in that world – much of it driven by Jesters – and we can report as follows:
- On the international scene the Swiss – who have Eton Fives courts in Zuoz at the Lyceum (in the Alps near St. Moritz), Geneva and Zurich where the game flourishes at all three locations – visited the UK for a long weekend of sport and general bon homie. They attended the EFA dinner at the RAC (the EFA possibly having taken their cue from the Jesters holding their Annual Dinner at that venue); they also visited Hampton Court Palace to play on the real tennis court where they were ceremoniously taken on a shire horse-drawn carriage ride around the palace estate. This was arranged by the daughter of David White, a Jester and the chairman of the Old Citizens’ Eton Fives Club who were hosting the Swiss for their weekend. And, oh yes, the Swiss also played some Eton fives, including for the Adams Cup (an Old Citizen trophy first played for in 1928 – which makes it the oldest trophy in the game apart from the Kinnaird itself). The Old Cits run a Fives club which, extraordinarily, continues to thrive some 35 years after they lost their home courts at the City Of London School. The Jesterheavy club shows what can be done, even if you lack courts of your own.
- Also on the international front, there is some interest in building a couple of Eton fives courts at a golf and tennis club in Wisconsin, US. If it does come about, no doubt the Jesters will be involved. Watch this space.
- At this year’s annual EFA dinner Karen Hird, a Jester, national champion Eton fives player and formidable real tennis player, having been a coach at Lord’s for some years – was awarded the Eton Fives Player of the Year Award. Karen, a former City solicitor, recently decided to give up the day job and become the full time Eton Fives coach at Repton School.
- Repton School has in the last 12 months had a complete revival of the game of Eton fives. In the past, Repton has been a formidable fives-playing school with a magnificent block of 12 Eton fives courts. However, over the last 20 years or so, fives has dwindled at the school. The game clung on by its finger tips and in the past 12 months, with the benefit of a new headmaster and the necessary funds being raised, the school has refurbished the 12 courts. The game is now flourishing at both school level as well as a successful adult playing members’ club being formed.
- In the EFA league the Old Westminsters completed their emergence as a serious force in the game by winning Division One for the first time.
- At the EFA dinner octogenarian Jester David Cooper was awarded the Unsung Hero award for a lifetime’s untrumpeted service to the game. This was richly deserved as David not only still pays the game regularly but also contributes greatly to the administration of the sport, the wise man that he is! A video was shown of David playing Fives at Zuoz in the late 1950s – one particular shot drew applause from the audience: David has had to wait some 60 years for it to be properly appreciated!
- The fives at Newbury School continues to thrive and grow after three new courts were built at the redeveloped school some 10 years ago by JPR Courts Ltd. (run by veteran Jester John Reynolds) with again both school children and a healthy adults club playing the game.
- A squash court has been converted into a fives court at Christ’s Hospital School in Horsham (JPR Courts was involved again). Admittedly, this is a Rugby fives court, but it shows a way of creating new fives courts much more economically than starting from scratch. Perhaps there are other disused squash courts, sports building or even old garages which could also be converted?
So the flame is still very much alive in the world of Jesters Eton Fives and Will and I are planning a bumper 22/23 season with lots of fixtures being played so please watch this space in next year’s report. Best wishes to all.
Ben Hale reports for Rugby Fives Either side of a winter pandemic break we managed a disjointed Rugby Fives season with most of our planned matches taking place at some point but very few the originally planned one. Many thanks to our long suffering match managers who continue to deliver a surprising number of draws.
The usual January tour to Edinburgh instead took place in March with the slightly smaller than usual touring party (a mere thirty of us) enjoying the Rugby Union as well as the Fives. For the first time, but hopefully not the last, we made the trip up to Strathallan for an extra match alongside the usual school, university and club matches.
A Jesters team featuring departing fellow Rugby Fives representative James Tilston also made it to the semi-finals of the annual club knockout tournament the Wood Cup. Many thanks to James for all his work over the last few years.
The final word should go to the recently refurbished and reopened courts at Stoke Newington School in Hackney. An RFA-led initiative has seen Rugby Fives return to the school after many years. There are plans afoot for a community club so please do contact me if you’d be interested in playing there.
Alastair Gourlay reports for Rackets The 2021/2022 saw a gentle return to the rackets fixtures of the Jesters after the two turbulent covid infested seasons. As always, it started with a genial pairing of seasoned Jesters and unseasoned Jesters as they battled it out against the T&RA for the coveted title as holders of the Strawson. I am glad to report the Jesters won in a cheerful couple of matches 2-0.
As the season progressed and players emerged from their dens to realise that we could now once again play our coveted games, matches began to flow through season. I would like to draw attention to Jesters candidates Tom Billings and Richard Owen whom challenged and won the World Doubles Rackets Championships from fellow US Jester Jonathon Larken and James Stout, the New York Racquet Club professional. It was a convincing win and the British pairing look set to control the doubles game for the near future.
On the committee front I would like to welcome James Coyne who has been appointed the successor to Bruce Burnett as the Midlands representative. As many of you might know, James is a seasoned rackets player and worthwhile ex-champion of many doubles (inc. the world doubles) and singles tournaments. Onwards to 2022/23, Play!
Adam Dolman reports for Real Tennis Thankfully the pandemic brought far less disruption to this season’s real tennis fixtures and it was great to see us back to almost full capacity, although many matches around the country faced smaller numbers of players this year but this was mainly due to competing activities.
Despite some match managers finding it hard to find players, we still managed to get 33 fixtures played across the year and almost completed the full sweep of every club in the country. The Oratory, Manchester and Falkland the only 3 courts that currently don’t feature on our fixtures list. I hope we can change that going forward.
You perhaps won’t be surprised to hear that Queen’s hosts the highest number of Jesters fixtures across the year (6 matches) but we owe a huge thank you to Hardwick House, who with far less administrative support, are kind enough to host 4 of our matches, against the LRTA, Army, Brigands and Hardwick respectively. A huge thank you to Tony and Fayleen Billington who do the lion’s share of work there opening and closing up, catering, accommodating and playing, we are incredibly indebted to their support.
Another notable fixture was the Jesters v the OE’s, with Simon Talbot-Williams seemingly organising both sides. An amazing 20 applicants, 12 who played, including 3 candidates and 8 players under the age of 40 (which is apparently the new 20). I’m pleased to report that the match still managed to end in a draw!
Fiona Harrison kindly reported that the Jesters played Leamington at the end of November, all great fun, some excellent tennis and usual fantastic Leamington hospitality. They had 6 players each with most playing singles and doubles, or two doubles if preferred, again ending in a 4-all match draw!
Then on Sunday 5th Nov, the Jesters took a court at Moreton and after a conversation with Tom Granville about the Moreton Jesters fixture, Fiona has proposed that we try to make a weekend of it, in which the Jesters play Leamington on the Saturday and Moreton on the Sunday. With so much going on these days with fixtures every weekend, we hope you all agree it would be good to tie the two together, so watch this space in 2023.
Over to the MCC next, where amazingly we actually managed to see a result! Sadly the Jesters were on the losing side, going down 3-2 to a strong MCC side but, Brian Sharp was keen to report that there were several decent matches with some good Tennis. The only disappointment being the last match when the combined ages of the MCC players was 53, which was considerably lower than either of the stalwarts who represented the visitors.
And last but certainly not least, you may remember that last year the Jesters made a generous donation to the Dedanist Foundation, to support junior tennis across the country. There were a number of new initiatives during the year: Bristol – Free Junior Open Day October 25th; Moreton Morrell – Free Junior Open day October 23rd; Oratory – Free Junior Open Day October 30th. As well as these events, there are junior workshops taking place on a regular basis now at the Hyde, Jesmond, Wellington, and Canford. The Dedanists are particularly pleased with their progress at Moreton, Canford, Hyde and Jesmond who historically have done very little to encourage junior tennis.
It’s great to hear that more is being done to support junior tennis and I really hope this can go some way to encouraging more young into the game both at amateur and professional level.
Look forward to seeing many of you over the coming season.
Tim Edwards reports for Padel With new padel courts and clubs springing up all over the country many Jesters are playing and enjoying padel. The coming together of Jesters from all the different Jester sports trying and learning this highly addictive sport is great to see.
The Jesters padel season now starts with the traditional opening fixture vs. Weybridge Padel Club which is always keenly contested and the season is rounded off in the summer in the fantastic surroundings of The Hurlingham Club with their expanded facility of three new courts. New fixtures this year included matches against the Roehampton Club, UK Padel at Holmer Green Padel Club and IPadel at Limpsfield Tennis Club.
The Fitzwilliam Club kindly hosted the Jesters during a World Championship qualifying tournament held in Dublin in February, an excellent standard of padel followed by watching the Six Nations rugby in the clubhouse and refreshment. The first Jesters tour to Guernsey occurred in April in beautiful weather to one of the nicest and most sociable clubs in the UK and both of these venues have expressed their enthusiasm for an annual fixture. The North of England Jesters still play regularly at the beautiful court of Charlcot and are now spoilt for choice with busy clubs at Middlesborough, Harrogate, Leeds and Ripon while the Scottish Jesters are well represented, playing regular matches at Edinburgh Sports Club. It has been exciting to hear from Jesters overseas, especially in the USA and South Africa, how padel is now catching on quickly in those countries too.
Next year will see new fixtures against Chiswick, Oxshott, Stratford Padel Club and Rye Padel Club who are now the proud owners of the oldest and the newest courts in the country, not that they will hold this record for long as there are around 300 more courts being installed in the UK in the next 12 months.
Many thanks to all the Jesters who played and helped to organise the fixtures and please let me know by email if you would like to be added to the Jesters Padel whatsapp group.
Marshall Pagon (President of the US Jesters) reports for the United States The past year has seen a return to pre-pandemic norms of US Jesters activity, including:
- One of our largest Annual Weekends ever (over 125 Jesters participated!) celebrating the opening of the magnificent new Arlen Specter US Squash National Center. In addition to our normal schedule of Jester games (squash singles & doubles, tennis and rackets) at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and the Specter Center, we also enjoyed glorious early Fall weather for golf at Pine Valley, Merion and Gulph Mills, lawn tennis at Merion Cricket and padel (Philadelphia’s newest obsession) in Manayunk.
- Jester regional get togethers in Baltimore (golf at Baltimore Country Club, squash & dinner at the Maryland Club and a day at the BMW Championships at Caves Valley); Santa Fe (brunch at the annual Kiva Invitational); New York (squash & dinner at the University Club); Philadelphia (multiple padel events); San Francisco (lunch and squash); Detroit (golf at Oakland Hills, squash & dinner at the Detroit Athletic Club and a visit to Detroit’s urban squash program); and Boston (golf at Belmont Country Club, lawn Tennis at Longwood, squash at the Harvard Club, dinner at the University Club and a day at the US Open at The Country Club).
- Collegiate club squash fixtures in Cincinnati, Washington, DC, Chicago, San Diego and Philadelphia. (The US Jesters have sponsored tournaments for underfunded collegiate non-varsity squash programs for many years. This program – created and led by Bob Burton for a decade – is now stewarded by Chris Brownell, whose son, Tim, is US Squash’s reigning national men’s champion.)
- The launch of the new US Jesters Foundation. (The foundation, brought to fruition through the initiative and leadership of past Presidents Peter Dunne, Patrick Miller and Addison Lanier, will further the financial support historically provided by the US Jesters Club of our Jester games.)
- The admission of 16 new US Jesters (twelve men and four women) representative of the geographic and athletic breadth of our membership – SQUASH: Philadelphia (3), Los Angeles (3), New York (1), Chicago (1), Atlanta (1), San Francisco (1), South Carolina (1) and Colorado Springs (1); and TENNIS: Washington, DC (1), Jamestown, RI (1), Charleston, SC (1) and Madison, WI (1).
In the coming year, we are looking forward to an even fuller slate of activities, including:
- Sending an outgoing tour to the UK and Ireland captained by Chris Haley (Baltimore) and including team members Erik Grenade (Atlanta), Bill Barker (Washington, DC), Ramsey Maune (Santa Barbara) and Will Gaynor (Washington, DC).
- Hosting the incoming tour from the UK with an itinerary through Denver, Colorado Springs, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and concluding at our Annual Weekend in San Diego.
- Our Annual Weekend in San Diego (first ever) hosted by Renato Paiva and fellow San Diego Jesters with squash at the newly opened Access Youth Academy, golf at Torrey Pines, as well as lawn tennis, padel and surfing.
- A robust schedule of regional gatherings, mini tours (two-to-four-day events featuring Jester games, padel, lawn tennis, golf and skiing) and collegiate squash round robins.
In sum, our club is in good health – an unanticipated dividend from the enforced idleness of the pandemic is that our finances are healthier than they have been in many years and we are fortunate to have maintained a strong and engaged Executive Committee.
Respectfully submitted, Play Up!
John Hungerford (Chairman of the Canadian Jesters) reports for Canada 2021 was not a particularly memorable year for squash in Canada although many played whenever they found a court around Covid restrictions. The love of the game and comradery also saw a small contingent of Canadian men and women being hosted by the United States at the University Club in Chicago for the 99th running of the Lapham Grant Tournament in November. The 100th Lapham Grant will be hosted in Toronto in late October 2022. Lucky will be the invitees!
Thankfully, squash across Canada is coming out of the Covid restrictions, and the incoming Canadian Chairman will have numerous exciting squash developments to report on in 2022. There is a lot of pent-up enthusiasm and effort circulating for junior development and general participation from coast to coast. Similarly, we are excited to be hosting our South African friends this September after years of postponements.
We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Jesters will be hosting a 4-day 75th Jubilee at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club (Toronto, Ontario) from Thursday May 25th to Sunday May 28th 2023. Our committee has some exciting events planned and we want to know if you are able to attend. In the next several days your international representative will be receiving the website link, asking if you plan to attend etc.
Garth van Rensburg (Chairman of the south Africa Jesters) reports for South Africa Since our last report, our Jesterly activities have returned to a semblance of post-Covid normality. In the second half of 2021, the authorities relaxed our Covid regulations allowing limited numbers at sporting and social gatherings. We decided to launch The Jesters CCJ Oktoberfest Doubles Squash and Padel Tournament with the 50 players allowed. Fortunately, by the time the tournament date neared, the regulations had changed to 100. And what a tournament it turned out to be with players arriving from all around the country with a post covid break out mentality. It was wonderful to see those who hadn’t played Padel, introduced to the game at the new courts at CCJ. The tournament will take place on the 10th November this year. As a note, Padel Tennis is taking the country by storm and the Jesters have already played a number of matches around the country.
Our match roster has resumed countrywide again with the St Francis Bay doubles running at full strength in February. We have decided that our match objectives for the future is to raise funds for various causes. As you know, the club has been involved with the Egoli Development Program run by Jester Glen Lazarus since it’s inception. Both in coaching and financial assistance. This program aimed at children from previously disadvantaged backgrounds has had phenomenal results and their players are reaching the highest levels of both Junior and Senior squash. It has been a wonderful experience to see these players blossom and forge careers that wouldn’t have been possible previously.
Our 2020 outgoing tour to Canada is finally taking place in September, and has turned out to be the strongest team ever to leave our shores. Good luck to Bart and his team both on and off the court, you’re going to have a lot of fun.
All the best to our fellow Jesters around the world for a healthy and injury-free year.
Jonathan Buckley (Australian Jesters Representative) reports for Australia Australia emerged from severe lockdown/border closures, for games to recommence, in the summer of 2021/22. While Hobart played largely through COVID, and Ballarat benefited from its regional location, tennis in Melbourne was prohibited for 122 days in calendar 2021.
February saw the Jesters first match of the year, playing in Ballarat with the Wanderers. The team of Mike Garnett, Craig Williams, Nick Carr, Jonathan Buckley and Greg Moran enjoyed a terrific day, despite failing to match the handicap skills of the opposition. Wanderer’s 8 sets & 52 games; BTC 6 sets & 54 games; Jesters 1 set & 31 games.
In March the Jesters played a match in Melbourne with the Royal Melbourne Tennis Club and the Melbourne Cricket Club’s Real Tennis Section. Teams of six played a triumvirate format, with the Jesters claiming the bronze medal. Some 30 people enjoyed supper in the RMTC garden.
The first tour of Australia by the British Jesters will commence on 29 October 2022, at the Cheltenham Recreation Club in Sydney, an historic lawn tennis and croquet club that is to be the site of the new real tennis court in New South Wales. The tour will continue in Victoria over Melbourne Cup Day, then on to Ballarat’s Festival of Tennis, before heading down to Hobart.
Plans have also been set for an Australian Jesters tour of the USA in September 2023.
