The Latest Trend In Stag Dos
08/04/19: Since Bernard Montgomery - later Field Marshal Earl Montgomery of Alamein - proposed to his future wife in the courts at Charterhouse in 1927, the links between Fives courts and matrimony have been few and far between.
Until, that is, Old Olavian Aston Stockdale decided that after years of missing playing since his schooldays at St.Olave's, he would finally seize the opportunity to show all of his friends exactly what it was that he'd been banging on about for all these years by getting them all to play a morning of Fives as part of his stag do last weekend.
A fantastic morning ensued, with the twenty or so newcomers donning gloves for the first time and taking part in a mix and match tournament which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, showing just how good Fives can be as a sport for a gourp of people to have a go at for a team building exercise, office party, birthday celebration or indeed a stag or hen do. Who knows, maybe this could be the start of an exiciting new trend!
