Tomorrow, 18th May sees our annual Club Open Day. It runs from 11am until 4pm and we’re hoping for some decent weather. I’ve put in a bid and I’m told it may be a bit cloudy but there’s a chance of a little sunshine too! Fingers are well and truly crossed! We have a so many sporting exciting activities lined up, including free fitness classes, a junior squash tournament, tennis for adults, croquet and complimentary swimming in our heated pool. Regardless of the weather there will be plenty to see and do! And special Open Day offers on Membership too.

Visitors to our Club on the day will have the chance to win one of three summer guest passes. If you’re already a member, if you win, you can gift these to your family and friends.

Please do pop down and see us to see what’s on offer. Spread the word. Bring family, friends, neighbours, colleagues – everyone! You’re ALL welcome! Book in for the FREE classes and activities, or simply pop down to a drink at the bar or a tasty lunch from our Poolside Kitchen (yes our signature chicken burger is BACK! and there are plenty of healthy options too) Please check what is on offer HERE and sign up for our free activities.

Weather permitting, should you wish to test your competitive spirit and try out our lush green grass tennis courts, please join in the fun and sign up for our Open Day Tennis Tournament, it’s free to enter and everyone of a reasonable standard is welcome to play. Sign up online HERE or use our sign-up sheet in the foyer. If you are planning to play, please make sure you wear shoes suitable for grass tennis court play.

We are excited to announce that our new Club branded sportswear will be available for purchase, specially designed to celebrate our 125th anniversary. We hope you’ll like it as much as we do. The collection will be on sale at David’s Shop this weekend.

We hope you’ll agree that the Club is looking fabulous at the moment. We’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to prepare the courts, power wash the terrace, paint where we can and generally spruce the place up! Huge thanks to all our team for their hard work. And a big thank you too to Ann Towler for her sterling work to make our planters look fabulous with an array of colourful blooms. And in Club colours too!
