Tim Bebb

All, It is with huge sadness that I write to tell you that Tim Bebb passed away shortly before Christmas. Tim is to be cremated at 2:00 p.m. at Woking Crematorium on Monday 14th January. As David Wybar writes… “Tim Bebb was a complex man and a natural Wykehamist – very intelligent, if eccentric, and with a sharp wit which he aimed at anyone and everyone including himself but excluding […]

2015 Aldington Match

In glorious weather a side of OWs visited Hockley for the annual match against The School. In accordance with the format for the weekend set by Lord Aldington, past Warden, we played 8 singles under handicap and then had a dinner in the Lodgings where excellent food and wine were served and senior men attended with dons and the Second Master and his wife.

OWGS v WinColl at Woking – 10th March

In the traditional pre-Micklem warm-up for the School, OWGS were victorious over turning a heavy loss from last year. There were soom good performances but perhaps none will equal Jamie Hudson’s calamitous collapse at 18 in front of the gallery. 1up on Jamie succumbed to the pressure; his shank preceding several from the sand, a quick handshake and a shuffle up the hill! Holt bt Cheung 3/2 Bonsall lost to […]

OWGS – Captain’s Report 2014

I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year as Captain of OWGS, playing in 8 matches and both the Spring and Autumn Meetings and acting as non-playing Captain at the Halford Hewitt.

I’m really […]

Hockley Centenary Match

A wonderful report of the day, written by Chris Fell   Things didn’t go according to plan. I had added an hour to the estimated journey time to allow for a leisurely sandwich in the Hockley clubhouse, catching up with friends and preparing for the first tee and the titanic struggle ahead. A glorious summer day in Hampshire beckoned. Gradually the sky darkened, the rain steadily increased to something almost […]
