DIARY: Muscling in on the Harbour Club action

The phrase ‘fish out of water’ came inexplicably to mind when I heard that Chelgate chairman Terence Fane-Saunders had been spotted at that haunt of princesses and rugby players, the Chelsea Harbour Club.

The phrase ‘fish out of water’ came inexplicably to mind when I heard

that Chelgate chairman Terence Fane-Saunders had been spotted at that

haunt of princesses and rugby players, the Chelsea Harbour Club.



I happen to know that the nearest Fane-Saunders gets to physical

exertion is the odd game of backgammon and that his last health club

visit was around 11 years ago when he got engaged.



However it turns out that Fane-Saunders was not tuning up his pecs but

representing Chelgate, which was sponsoring a ladies doubles tennis

tournament in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.



He confides that the visit is not likely to herald a new fitness regime:

‘I don’t actually think health clubs are very good for you: my friends

who use them seem to spend most of their time in bandages.



‘In any case, going to the tournament was a simple choice: an issues

strategy session with a cement manufacturer or an afternoon with 48 fit

and beautiful women. What would you have done?’
