Mix ‘n’ Match Tournament
Congratulations to Simon Fox and Fiona Pye, who recently won the autumn/winter Mix “n” Match tournament, defeating Simon Playfair and Val Ashwood 6-2 6-3 in the final.
The new draw for the spring/summer Tournament is about to go live, so watch this space. Many thanks to the 32 players who have agreed to play.

Boyd Tournament
16 players competed in this one day tournament yesterday. A bring and share lunch and some warm sunshine were enjoyed by all. The trophy was won by Jon Budd and Fiona Pye, who beat Ginette Basten and Debbie Lane in a nerve-tingling final. The score was 6-5. 50% of the profit will be donated to Grove Cottage.

The sign up sheets will soon be appearing in the Clubhouse. We still can’t quite believe that we have been allocated 19 pairs of tickets for our own ballot.

Ladies’ Night
The next Ladies’ Night will be on Monday 13th April from 7pm. Please come along and join in with this popular session.

King’s Arms Quiz
There is one space left on the team for the next quiz, which will take place on Tuesday 31st March at 8pm. Please contact me if you are keen.

Please continue with the winter measures, turning off the water supply in the Clubhouse, until the end of April. Thank you!

Finally, apologies to the 5 members who have, for some unknown reason, dropped out of the STC members group and not been receiving my emails. Thanks for spotting it and if anyone hears of anyone else not receiving e-mails, please let me know.

Best wishes,
