Hello! We have some great news!
We’re really pleased to announce that as a result of some tremendously hard work, our grass courts will be open from tomorrow (Saturday) morning! This is slightly earlier than usual but as a result of the recent dry weather they’re ready for play! Anyway, we’ve just had a bit of a pandemic, we wanted to have as many facilities open as possible.
Also we have a new website! Do check it out. www.fosltc.com It is a work in progress so do make sure that if you spot anything that’s not quite right or you’d like to see more information or functionality? Please do get in contact with us.
Fish & Chips!
Next Friday, FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY (until we get our kitchens up and running properly) Chef has agreed to prepare his legendary fish & chips for al fresco dining! This is for the evening of Friday 30th April. Please book your spaces via the website as we are experimenting with our brand new online booking and payment system – space is strictly limited and when the spaces are gone… they’re gone! Service will be between 6.30 and 8.30pm and it MUST be pre-booked. Our payment system is up and running and it will be £12.90 per person. The link to book and pay is here
If you have a ‘mare booking, you can book via the office!
If you’ve not checked out our new range of drinks in the bar yet… what are you waiting for? The Camden Hell’s lager is going down a treat, the FOS LGR has a brand new taste and yes, you can get Corona on tap. (Too soon to make a joke about getting Corona without it being life threatening? Please drink responsibly etc etc).
BOGOF is BACK
Fancy a gin & tonic? We have some fabulous King of Soho Gin and for today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) we have a special buy one get one free offer. When it’s gone… it’s gone!
Meanwhile, please do spread the word to family, friends, work colleagues, neighbours and EVERYONE that we are here, the benefits of membership and to join. And if you’re a bit shy, we are on Facebook and instagram so do follow us and share posts etc. It does make a massive difference.
This week we made a big leap forward with our plans to get the LED lighting for the bubble courts sorted as the quotes for the works have come in. To put a timeline on this for you, we are seeking to get the works done in time for the autumn season. We are working on our croquet lawn plans too and the works are underway.
Please make sure you book any courts and don’t just turn up. You can do this online or via the office. It’s the same for gym and squash too.
And just a reminder of the rules. Please stick to the Covid guidelines on who can play and the numbers of people etc. Wear a face covering if you’re
Don’t forget that in addition to Pete’s one-on-one lessons he and the team at Neet Academy are providing some fantastic group coaching. And there’s some offers too. See below for details, or on the website or at Neet Academy HQ!
We will begin our croquet coaching sessions on April 28th from 5pm until 6.30pm. Rich Waterman will be coaching on that date and every other Wednesday thereafter. If you’d like more information, please speak to Susie Anderson or contact the office!
