CompassSport Cup 2020
Club members performed exceptionally well at the inter club CompassSport Cup competition at Hampstead Heath on 15th March across all ages groupings, males, females and juniors. We came 2nd of the 6 clubs competing for the Trophy. Particularly impressive results were achieved by our juniors with both Madeline Pitcher (W14-) and Maxime Pesenti (M18-) achieving the maximum 100 points and Vadim Pesenti (M14-) achieving 98 points. Thanks to Club Captain Antoine Pesenti for mustering up a strong team. 2nd is our highest place for many years. Let’s see if we can go one better next year and make it to the finals.
