Imber Open Day

It was a gloriously hot day at the beginning of the month when we welcomed new guests and existing members to discover just some of the facilities we have to offer. Our Tae Kwon-Do team were there showing off their moves, as well as the dotty dog show, slimming world, Met Rugby and many more! Not to mention, the fantastic Pirates on Bikes, hosted by Family Bike Show, who have posted their own blog of events, right here

In the Imber

Both Dogs and Grounds are being groomed and pruned read for our Open Day this Sunday. With categories such as Waggiest Tail, be sure to get practising in preparation for the Dotty Dog Show. We’ve also all been out in force, tending to the flowers and the kitchen garden to make sure we look our best. There’s a lot of buzz this week as the excitement around the club grows for everyone, including the #CrossFit2012 team, who are hosting a competition in their newly built box. That’s a Gym to the rest of us.

Superhero Family Bike Ride at Imber

We were absolutely thrilled to be joined by the strongest and most powerful Superheroes at Imber.  Celebrating family cycling together and taking an enjoyable post-Christmas bike ride around the stunning grounds of Imber Court.

We know how busy our heroes are every day saving the world keeping us safe from the baddies, and it was great to see them in action whizzing round the track!

Many of us were relieved when they used their amazing strength and super powers, managing to stop the downpours of rain half an hour before they set off! Yes they were over the moon to enjoy their ride with a little blue sky and unexpected sunshine.

There was a great atmosphere, and lots of smiles.   It was good to see families enjoying cycling together.  The ride offers a simple loop suiting all abilities, and easy for the parents of the younger ones to follow on foot too.

The Superheroes had a great chance to show off their super- fast riding and scooting, and for some a chance to practice on their new Christmas bikes and scooters.

The riders were all rewarded afterwards with a Family Bike Ride Medal and some well-earned treats.

Thank you to everyone that came and enjoyed the day, and to all our great staff at Imber Court who have, as always, been so helpful and welcoming to the Superheroes.

We were also joined by Momentum a locally registered charity supporting children with cancer or life-limiting conditions and their families.  Thank you to everyone that donated to this great cause.

MET Rugby flying high with five from five

Police take full points from first-time visitors to Imber Court

The Met Police continued their perfect start to the season, claiming a fifth bonus point victory from five League games in Surrey 3. Tries from Kyle Richards, Chris Bamber-Blake,Chris Holloway, and Rory Byrne, augmented by 12 points from the boot of James Connolly, took the Met to a 32-21 victory over Horley.
The two clubs were meeting for the first time in history and the visitors appeared to enjoy their debut at Imber Court in spite of the result. Horley had enjoyed a good start to the season with three straight wins but have now come unstuck on their last two outings. They now have to entertain the League’s other pace-setters, Old Caterhamians, and hope to stop an unfortunate run of results.
The Met, meanwhile, can be very pleased with the result, even though their early season score differentials have now been surpassed by Old Cat’s and Old Rut’s. The Met found themselves playing a proportion of this match with only fourteen men, thanks to the two yellow cards received by Kob Yeboah which ended up in him being dismissed from the field. The Met weathered the disadvantage to record the win that keeps them level with Old Caterhamians at the top of the table.
Elsewhere, Old Rutlishians suffered a shock defeat at Worth Old Boys, ending their unbeaten record. Met travel to Old Ruts next Saturday and will have to beware the wounded animal. Caterhamians continued their awesome form, beating London Media by 50 points and are now averaging over 58 points a game! Creeping up on the rails after a difficult start to the season, are Old John’s who put 89 points on Croydon for the concession of a solitary try.
The Met 2nd XV illustrated the Club’s burgeoning strength in depth, recording a resounding victory against local rivals Kingston, 69-31.
The next fixture at Imber Court is at 3pm this coming Saturday 11th November when the Met Police Rugby Team take on Worth Old Boys
