Sunday 13th March – SE District Finals

Alice performed wonderfully in the SE England District Final Speech Contest against a field which included 2 previous National Champions. She came through as the only woman in the competition to win her place in the National Finals on April 16th in Edinburgh. She has only been a club member for half a year!
In contrast Michael, a 2 times National Champion himself, will fly the flag for Wimbledon yet again in his 7th National Final in the Evaluation Contest.

February 9th London Area Finals

Congratulations to Alice. Having joined Wimbledon Speakers only a few months ago, she delivered a complete, note-free and polished performance in a field of 10 highly talented speakers to become this year’s London Area Speech champion. Philippe delivered an enthralling speech on the strange fascination of orbituaries, but the honours this time went to Alice. Michael backed her up in his usual efficient way, by winning the Evaluation Contest. Another noteworthy set of results for Wimbledon SC.

Competition National Champion April 26th 2010

It is a rare achievement to become National Speech champion once. Now for the first time in the history of the ASC the title has been reclaimed! Having been National Speech Champion in 2007, this year on April 24th Michael Ronayne (centre) became the first ASC speaker to go back and win it again. This is now the 4th time in the last 10 years that a member of Wimbledon Speakers has either won or been Runner up in the National speech final. Oh what a proud club we are!
