HERCULES Wimbledon Athletic Club continues to show promise with encouraging performances from the club’s rising female athletes.

Last Saturday, June 3, the Lily B league opener was held at Epsom, an athletics event providing competition for Surrey girls from under-13 to under-17 level.

The Lily B league is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, having been established in 1972 and providing a learning ground for the county’s best young women, many of whom have won junior international honours.

The youngsters from Hercules finished third out of 12 teams, thanks to a multitude of performances in all areas. What is all the more remarkable is that many of the athletes were competing for the first time in their gold and red vests.

In the under-15s, Neva Jansen excelled in the hammer throw and the discus, winning both disciplines with distances of 17.10m and 23.46m respectively. His hammer performance is the 25th best in the country for his age group so far this year.

Jansen was ably supported by Visne Bariman, whose 16.69m saw her win the B-rope in the hammer, and Charlotte Gurney whose 14.62m saw her win the B-rope in the discus.

Bariman showed impressive reach as he also cleared 1.25m in the high jump.

Willow Scales had a busy day in her Under-15 category winning the A-string high jump with a clearance of 1.56m, the 15th best in the country for her age group so far this season. In an undoubtedly tiring afternoon, Scales also finished second in the 75m hurdles in 12.6 seconds and the javelin, with a throw of 20.74m.

It was a family affair for the Scales at Epsom as older sister Mabel-Rose won both the high jump and the under-17 long jump, the latter a very impressive jump of 4.90m . Ella Ianotti, skillfully backed up the older Scales with a 3.79m effort in the long jump.

Success in the jumps continued as Florence Foster flew 3.72m to finish second in the under-13 long jump, and Poppy Guest finished fourth in the B rope with 2.98m. Marly Taylor’s 1.35m saw her claim victory in the under-13 high jump.

Promising hurdles saw Flo Freeman finish first in the Under-15 B channel in the 75m hurdles in 12.8 seconds to help secure valuable points for Hercules. Freeman’s afternoon also included a second-place finish in the long jump, bolstered by a fourth-place finish for Tallulah Broadbent in that discipline’s B rope.

On the track, Hercules athletes excelled in the sprint and distance events. Under-13 Isabella Harrison was second in 29.2 seconds over 200m, with high jump winner Taylor taking the B rope in 29.0 seconds.

Fellow Under-13s Poppy Guest and Tilly Crome showed endurance to finish second in Races A and B respectively, finishing in 5:23.1 and 6:34.6.

Hercules will look to build on that success at Guildford on June 25 where they face Surrey’s brightest girls in the second of three league matches.

Athletic Club seem to have a knack for passing goalkeepers like no other team in Spain. When they sold Kepa Arrizabalaga to chelsea, he became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world. They replaced him with the ‘keeper who would be the next Spanish number one.

The good news for Athletic fans is that he plans to stay for a long time.

“I would like to continue for many seasons, to retire in a sporting sense in this team, which for me is a second family, it is not for nothing that they say that we are a different club.”

“I’ve always thought that the world of professional football is very capricious and you never know what the future holds,” he said. Diario AS.

Simon hasn’t been without criticism for Spain either. In recent games, he has once again shown uncertainty when he had to leave his box to sweep behind the defence.

Luis Enrique defended his keeper virulently in the press and it’s something Simon is aware of but feels he can handle.

“Mental capacity is fundamental to assimilate that football is a game of mistakes and successes.”

Simon’s ability to overcome mistakes and show mental toughness in the face of adversity might just be what attracts Luis Enrique as a goalkeeper.

The Dallas Athletic Club recently ended a historic legacy between father and son with the retirement of golf course chief superintendent Kevin Nettles, concluding a 50-year tenure between him and his father, Clyde, both members of GCSAA, overseeing the installation of 36 holes.

Kevin first set foot on DAC property in 1971, when his father became chief superintendent of the Jack Nicklaus-designed championship courses. Kevin was 6 years old. He worked with his father, learning the trade and the course, until the couple switched roles in 1999 when Clyde retired. Clyde continued to spend time at the Dallas Athletic Club, providing assistance and advice, until his death in 2020.

The Dallas Athletic Club hosted the 1963 PGA Championship, won by Nicklaus, along with the 1997 US Mid-Amateur, and the father-son combination highlighted the family culture at the private North Texas facility.

“This course has been my life since I was 6, living behind the maintenance barn, following my dad, building, shaping and maintaining things year after year,” says Kevin, a GCSAA member of 36 years. “It pains me to take credit for our golf course, but I hope the members feel like they get their money’s worth here.”

The answer for those who have worked with him over the decades is that DAC got more than he would ever get paid.

Clyde Nettles (right) launched his era at the Dallas Athletic Club in 1971. In 1963, Jack Nicklaus won the PGA Championship there. In 1986, Nicklaus Design renovated the Blue Course.


Save the race

Nettles said that while other fathers and sons are certainly involved in running golf courses around the state of Texas, he and his father were the only ones who spent so much time together at the same club.

For his years of work on the golf courses at the Dallas Athletic Club and service to North Texas golf in general, Kevin received the 2021 Distinguished Service Award from the North Texas GCSA.

“I can’t tell you how much I will miss Kevin, his wisdom and his help to the club,” Dallas Athletic Club general manager Brent Burkhart said. “He literally saved the club tens of thousands of dollars through the work he did internally.”

“His history with the club is incredible. He knows more about the property than anyone,” adds Lance Patterson, the club’s head professional golfer. “When I first came on as chief pro 13 years ago, he was invaluable to me in understanding why things happened the way they did and what everything meant. “

Kevin Orties

Kevin Nettles is a 36 year old GCSAA member who has been with the Dallas Athletic Club since he was 6 years old.

Nicklaus, who has involved many members of his own family in his golf course construction work, said having Kevin and Clyde working together at the Dallas Athletic Club always gave him an extra level of comfort.

“When my Nicklaus Design team and I redid the Dallas Athletic Club blue course in 1986, father and son were there to ensure the golf course was cared for and protected for generations of members to come,” says Nicklaus . “I was there in 2019 to help the club celebrate its centenary, and I could see that golf was (still) in good hands.”

Burkhart said having a trusted superintendent on a club’s senior management team is key to any organization, but especially a private, family-oriented club like his.

He said the two Nettleses were always willing to help, but never acted like they were superior to others.

“He (Kevin) was almost always the smartest person in the room. He was always there to help, but never bragged about what he could do,” Burkhart says. “He was just like, ‘ Do you want me to watch it?’ And then he would have the answer. He worked so well with our team. He could just carry the load and wouldn’t compare to anyone else.

Keep it in-house

At a time when many clubs hire consultants to help plan renovation projects and then spend thousands to hire a team to do it, the Nettleses would do the majority of this kind of work in-house for many years. with their talented club maintenance team. “It’s something they don’t teach you in school or any superintendent training program. They just do the work and do it,” Patterson says.

Nettles says the idea of ​​doing projects in-house instead of outsourcing them to others came from the early members. Several of these members, Herschel Brown and others, owned local construction companies and would actually bring their company’s equipment to the field in the early 1970s.

“He (Brown) would bring a bulldozer here, and that’s how we started doing our own work,” Kevin recalls. “I think the question was, ‘Do you have the confidence to take on a big job?’ And we always have.

Longtime Nicklaus associate Chet Williams, who now has his own business and has worked with the Nettles for years, says seeing them in action was a throwback to the early days of the superintendent profession.

“As a golf course designer, I can’t imagine having a better golf course superintendent to work with,” he says. “Kevin and I have worked closely together at the Dallas Athletic Club for over a decade, and I can say with confidence that he has been an integral part of the improvements that have been made. I consider Kevin a trusted collaborator and also like a great friend.

leave a legacy

Nettles says the 50-year tenure between him and his father overseeing the same golf course is unmatched in Texas — or anywhere else, as far as he knows. For him, it was a labor of love.

“It’s so amazing to see what the club has become over the past 50 years and what has happened,” Nettles said. “The club has grown, but now I think it’s sitting on a gold mine for the future. The industry has really grown, and everything has gotten much bigger. The standards are so much higher than when I started.

“2020 has really been a difficult year for me with the death of my father and my (myself) illness, but the club have rallied around me and helped me as the family that they are.”

Kevin said he would stay at the famed club and looked forward to assisting the new course superintendent not named by Nettles at the facility: Travis Moore, GCSAA Class A superintendent, association member since 17 years. Moore has his own family ties to golf course management as the son of Jim Moore, longtime Director of Education and Outreach for the USGA Green Section (see ‘Texas’ first family of turf in the August 2020 issue of GCM, https://bit.ly/387P6W5). Kevin looks forward to encouraging continued improvements that build on his family legacy that made the Dallas Athletic Club so successful.

“Our legacy?” he says. “I just hope we were good value for DAC.”

“That era may be coming to an end,” adds Burkhart, “but our team appreciates him beyond belief. He’s just that kind of people. There really is a sense of family with Kevin and the club. , which will continue to make DAC so special.

Nicklaus says the unique connection to the Nettles’ course may be coming to an end, but what the North Texas club has meant to him and countless others will continue.

“Dallas Athletic Club has always had a special place in my heart,” Nicklaus says, “and I know for many years to come it will have a special place in Kevin’s heart.”

The Pitch Athletic Club & Tavern will open at Union Station early next year https://slidellathleticclub.com/the-pitch-athletic-club-tavern-will-open-at-union-station-early-next-year/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 03:22:30 +0000 https://slidellathleticclub.com/the-pitch-athletic-club-tavern-will-open-at-union-station-early-next-year/ If St. Louis sports fans don’t know what “the field” is, they soon will, in more ways than one.

If St. Louis sports fans don’t know what “the field” is, they soon will, in more ways than one. In addition to being a reference in football, The Pitch Athletic Club & Tavern will be the name of the new 200-seat sports and soccer bar at Union Station, scheduled to open on 20e Street, near Centene Stadium, in the first quarter of 2023, “well before the first kick-off in April”, believes Blaise Pastoret, restaurant manager at Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM).


The concept

“As soon as the MLS stadium became a reality, we started thinking about football bars,” recalls Pastoret. “So Ted Lasso came out, and many people became familiar with football and its respective terms, including “the pitch”, the name of the pitch on which it is played. Football fans know the term, but by the time St. Louis CITY SC starts its season, everyone will be,” Pastoret said.

Created by the LHM team and designed by The Lawrence groupThe land will be located in a 9,000 square foot space at the northwest corner of Union Station (20e Street), a space last occupied by Señior Julio (not to be confused with Oncle Julio in Frontenac). The slogan “Athletic Club & Tavern” was added to help explain the concept. “It’s not a private or paying club,” says Pastoret, “but a club in the sense of a football club, with ‘athletic’ alluding to the idea of ​​a sports bar and ‘tavern’ evoking good premium beer and food.

“Until now, Amsterdam Tavern was the only other football bar in town,” adds Pastoret. “Pints ​​start flowing early for weekend games, there’s always a queue at the door, and their food used to come from next door at the Dam, until he [The Dam] closed last week. So with or without a team, there was a void to fill.

The ground is expected to open early – “6.30am” – on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to welcome and attract local football fans, but the lure of the sports bar will be there all day and all night, says Pastoret. “If you’re thinking ‘downtown sports bar’, we want The Pitch to be the name that comes to mind.”


The menu

The menu will focus on distinctive sandwiches and bar entrees. An attraction will be the products of Carnegie Deli, the 85-year-old Manhattan institution that will allow its use on qualifying restaurant menus. Expect to see oversized sandwiches on New York-style rye bread, puffed up with corned beef and pastrami, as well as all-beef hot dogs, potato knishes and signature cheesecakes, as well as black and white cookies.

Lunch and dinner menus will also include riffs on St. Louis-themed dishes, such as a Dr. Pepper braised pork steak, grilled ravioli as big as your face, and different iterations of gooey butter cake. And since The Pitch will open early for breakfast on the weekends, iterations of the St. Louis slinger are being considered. The rest of the menu is still being crafted by Kellon McCardie, the chef who created similar offerings at the 10,000-square-foot Westport Social, another LHM venue.

In addition to a full bar, The Pitch will offer a wide variety of sports bar-style beers, including local and seasonal European, domestic and craft beers.


the atmosphere

The Pitch will have a “Las Vegas sports bar vibe, with high design and energy, while being cozy and nostalgic,” said Steve O’Loughlin, president and COO of LHM.

“The design calls for patinated wood and leather seats,” explains Pastoret. The description conjures up images of two other LHM venues, Basso Cigar Bar and The Back Room in Cheshire. “It will look like a well-maintained, lived-in pub, like it’s been there for a while,” he says.

On the walls will be memorabilia and vintage sports jerseys celebrating St. Louis’ past and present sporting history, major and minor league teams, “and there are plenty of them,” Pastoret notes, mentioning as the Hawks’ basketball opportunities; the Blues and St. Louis Eagles in hockey; the Cardinals, Gunners, Rams and Battlehawks of football; and the Foggernauts, Stars and Ambush in football. “We see it as a history lesson and a walk down memory lane,” says Pastoret.

Hammered tin ceilings will be added in some areas, a large “ribbon” TV will mark out the main bar, with auxiliary TVs anchoring each dedicated seating section. O’Loughlin says the space is large enough to simultaneously accommodate a private event and the public, and that there will be “opportunities for redemption, connectivity between the [Union Station] places since they are all on our campus.

The site will also include an outdoor seating area on the side of the building equipped with heaters and misters, as well as “gas lamps along the length of the building, to make it as European and old-world as possible,” says Pastoret.

“Now that St. Louis has a team and a stadium, we’re really excited to open a cool football and sports bar just steps from all the action,” he adds. “There couldn’t be a more perfect location.”
