ClubLife Newsletter – 14th October 21

Club Latest 

Dear members, 

It’s been a busy few weeks with events and tournaments being held at the club. 

Through September and into October we’ve had a ‘new members welcome evening’, ‘team night’, ‘mini closed tournament’ and held a ‘Macmillan coffee morning and tournament’. Full info on all these events is included below, thank you to everyone who helped, attended and donated!

As the nights start drawing in it’s worth reminding that club sessions will move indoors from 1st November. They remain on the outdoor courts currently, all are ‘turn up and play’ except midweek sessions and team practice. If you’re keen to find out more info on any of our club sessions, please see the info below.  

There’s plenty of upcoming events too, with the first on the horizon being the ‘Halloween themed’ Quiz Night! This has proved hugely popular already and we’re now down to the last few remaining tickets. Christmas party tickets will go on sale soon, more info to come in due course so keep an eye out for that. There’s some exciting news to announce regarding the floodlights on court 10 & 11, update below. 

Take care,

Jack Allan
Club Manager
