Clubhouse Cleaning
As we draw to the end of another year, I would like to say a very big thank you to all those who volunteered to help with the clubhouse cleaning this year.
I am now looking to organise next year’s rota, so if you would like to volunteer to go on the rota I would very much appreciate it. Please email me!

Winter measures
As previously communicated, we normally switch off the water supply to the clubhouse from the end of October. Due to the fact that the weather is still consistently warm for the time of year, we are NOT switching off the water at the moment.
As soon as the nights look like getting colder, I shall send out an email with instructions.

Enjoy your winter tennis! The leaves are nearly all down.

Best wishes,
