Ok, so this week’s weather was rather miserable. And whilst it may have impacted play at our LTA Grade 1 Tournament, we have battled through. Seeing some incredible matches played on both the grass and hard courts. If you have been down to watch, we’re certain you’ll have been impressed by the incredibly high standard of competition and hopefully proud of our amazing Club and the terrific job undertaken by the LTA Tournament team and our very hard working staff at the bar, in the office and the Poolside Kitchen. Not to mention the huge efforts by our grounds team to ensure our courts are playable and at their very best. It’s a massive team effort and a huge thank you to all. Back to the weather, it’s looking better for next week so we really hope you’ll book your courts and come on down to play! 

Big news. Pizza is back! You’ve told us how delicious it is. We and Chef have heard you and we have a summer schedule in place. All the dates are listed on the events pages of the website. Yes, for our ‘Thursday Night is Games Night’ which returns next week there’s pizza and (weather permitting) badminton too! With half-price on selected drinks and a wide array of games to enjoy – from table tennis, darts, and pool, to cards and board games, and more. Do make a trip down to the Club. After all, it’s a lot of fun and fantastic value too! Enjoy. 

Meanwhile, our Poolside Kitchen late-night Fridays are in full swing. Today the Poolside Kitchen will be open until 9pm, so why not enjoy delicious Clubhouse Burger, or my personal favourite (the absolute banger that is) the Chicken Burger or a tasty salad? Next Friday, bonsoir! Nomanomnomnom. Chef will be serving Steak & Frites! Whilst other menu items will be available too. If you want to guarantee your order? Pre-ordering is essential HERE.

Our Ladies B will be playing The Officers’ Club – I’m sure it will be a lovely evening, watching some good tennis whilst enjoying a tasty supper from our Poolside Kitchen.
