Rome Eurogames update
Updated: Dec 9, 2019
Graham Mather and I represented the club at this years Eurogames Tennis competition, joining over 2000 participants, from all over world in a great fun multisport LGBTQ+ sporting event.
The courts, the hosting at Yellow Roma tennis club and the host city were all totes fabuloso and a great time was had by all. I am delighted to report that Graham had a valiant battle in the Men's Doubles C semi finals losing only in a dramatic match in the super tie break. Unlucky Graham, you are definitely a drama magnet after that one I think! I was a little more fortunate and despite the heat (and maybe because of the copious amounts of prosecco consumed) managed to bag a bronze in both the mixed and women's A/B.
Eurogames 2020 is set to take place in Dusseldorf in 2020 with registration now open. Well worth a visit to Germany, as there are so many other LGBTQ+ sports represented as well as tennis.
