Early bird Chrissie Merrington arrived first at the Club yesterday. Gate still locked. Key in her bag in the boot. Shut boot, opened gate, then discovered she had locked her car key and phone in the car.

There the car sat until she was able to commandeer a phone from a passer-by and persuade her sister to bring her spare keys.

In the meantime all the other competition (and tennis) players had to park on the roadside.

Still, at least she got the pick of the car park!


Empty car park after Chrissie chose her space!
