When entering, consider your availability both for Finals Day and the week before. If you are away for finals day or the week before, please do not enter as it is likely you would need to withdraw, and it is not fair to other players.

Finals Day is on Saturday 20th July. Everybody is welcome to come and watch the finals of the different categories. We will send an email the day before of the order of play for the day. It is a good chance for all the members to socialise and support the club.

We hope to see as many of you playing or supporting on the day as possible!

Social Secretary Needed

Social Secretary Needed

Can you give some spare time to help your club?

The role of Social Secretary is currently vacant. We are in need of a Social Secretary to manage the club’s event calendar, including the possibility to try new events or improve on traditional ones. This would not necessarily entail personally running each event, but working with member volunteers.  Please don’t hesitate to contact Bryan or a committee member if you would like to learn more or have an interest.
