Champagne: 2 teams, The 5 Bollingers in Orange Fedi, Ak, Shirley, Laurie, Gilly versus the Tattingers a case of 6 in Cherry. Louise, Nancy, Dania, Andreea, Sarita and Lisa. Coach Kir Royal blew her silver whistle. The game began after drills of Clicquot and Pol Rogeroll. Fedi was the first to pop the cork! Cheers for bolli! The Orange clinked their glasses Pommer’ing the ball into the net, bubbling up a fine score of 7-1. Game 2 ‘Bucks fizz’ more baskets for the orange. The Tattingers were getting drunk, missing their shots. Coach Kir swopped Feddi with Louise and the Cherry’s started to catch up. Bottoms up from Dania as she sipped a basket in from the side. Laurie Perrier caught the ball but was too surrounded to pass. AK to the rescue catching rebounds and knocking back the baskets. The hall was hot and the Champagne was not chilled. Nancy was kept in reserve and had a bad reaction to the Rose.
At 8pm I dedicate a toast a glass to X-Badabing and friend who lost her life this week,
Karen Krug Wellman 1959-2019 aged 59
Missing you already.
The Nominees gathered in the great court hall busying themselves with warmups and shooting drills while waiting for Queen Jo to enter with this years Honours List. Once assembled the Queen split the players into 2 teams.
The OBE’s (Obsessive Basketball Efforts) in Blue, Louise, Feddi, Nancy, AK, Andreea, Tulay. Versus The MBE’s (Mad-for-it Basketball Evangelists) in Green, Sarita, Gill, Laurie, Sally, and Shirley. The OBE’s scored first with a team effort between AK, Feddi and Nancy. The MBE’s took their time before Shirley made the green basket to the list. Sarita was first to bow to the Queen finding herself on the floor. No foul was called and the game played on. In between a couple of water breaks and subbing, AK collected her OBE for services rendered to the net. Nancy received her’s for catching, shooting and all round team player. Sally was awarded MBE for best blocking. Fedi for Travel. Tulay for a near miss finger Jam. Laurie for marking. Gill for dodging her Marker. The award of the evening went to Andreea for her services to Drama. Her latest film ’Don’t touch my Heir’ The ceremony was fast hot and beautifully exhausting.
Brilliant fun had by all. See you all next week for more fun and if you can make it, drinks after play. X

HMS Ballfast in Seafaring Green, Louise Jenny, Sally, AK, Shirley, Nancy. Fighting for freedom, The Red Re-Fusiliers Dania, Sarita, Laurie, Gill, Andreea and Feddi. Operation Overlord the game began. Louise blew her own trumpet being the first to score. Feddi the next to Dunk-kirk the ball. The reds had control. The greens were all at sea. Dania and Sarita lead the red landings. Then the tide changed AK’s rebounding earns her a chest full of medals. Sally parachuted in under the net. Nancy played with military precision. The Greens were the first to reach 7. Feddi took 2 from the free throw. Do-dah Hitler only had one ball! Humbug said Andreea who hated subbing landed 2 direct hits from the free throw line receiving a knighthood. We’ll fight them on the beaches, the reds used their secret weapon. Remember ladies Queen Jo is always right…even if she is wrong. At 8pm the time and the red arrows flew passed. Hands in…God save the Queen! We’ll meet again don’t know where don’t know when…..but i know will meet again next Wednesday!
