What a weekend we had! The pool was open, the sun was shining and the club held the 92nd annual Colchester and District individual league finals.
Once again, congratulations to all the finalists representing our club! We saw some amazing battles…. and hats off to everyone playing in that heat! The trophies were presented by our very own Bill Greeno and the deputy Mayor for Colchester Lesley Scott-Boutell. Our Ladies A team won the top Division – so do have a look in the local paper to see their smiling faces!
As we all know the end of our grass season and summer swimming is upon us…. the last day of grass play and swimming is Sunday 17th September. A huge thanks to Steve and Craig for all their hard work and care. We heard many compliments and positive comments about our courts throughout the summer and I’m sure all of you enjoyed the grass season as always.
Nevertheless, our club is still buzzing with plenty of activity and fun to be had. We are organising some exciting events, new coaching sessions and fitness classes .
We have another Sunday Lunch to look forward to on the 24th. Please click HERE for our menu and to book a table. Our chef will be serving: 28 Day Dry Aged Roast Rump of Beef, Roast Chicken, Salmon and Prawn Gratin and Butternut and Parsnip Pie. It all sounds delicious, so get booking!
We will once again be hosting the MacMillan Coffee Morning. This event will be held on Friday 29th September, starting at 10am. We served some amazing cakes and bakes last year and managed to raise over £300. We are hoping to make it even bigger and better this year, so please support this worthy cause by either baking or just enjoying a cup of tea or coffee with a freshly baked slice!

NEW Fitness Classes
We always listen to your feedback and always try to keep our classes entertaining and ‘fresh’.
So how about these:
Shake & Shimmy on Tuesdays from 6-7pm, starting 26/9
A new Adult dance class for all levels.
What is it?! Well, it’s not Zumba, it’s not ballroom or Latin and it’s certainly not hip hop! (More like new hip!)
It’s pure joyful dancing! Think Broadway/West End with a handful of disco and jazz.
We will work on a new routine every few weeks – so we will be using our brains as well!
Sometimes we just need to leave our worries behind, and just dance!
Bounce & Burn on Saturdays 11-11.45, starting 30/9
This is a fun and energetic aerobics class that takes place on a mini trampoline. It includes strength, balance and cardio movements and is the only exercise whereby you work on a vertical plane. Therefore, this engages the lymphatic system which is responsible for getting rid of all the toxins in our body making us feel great.
Both of these classes are now available to book online! It’s something a little different and great fun…so please spread the word and come along to join in. Non-members are welcome and will be charged £7 per class.
Women’s Squash Week | Free Taster Sessions
Don’t forget about our Squash week! This is an annual event when we organize some FREE coaching sessions for all the ladies to try and see if squash is their THING. It’s always entertaining, but be aware, you may get hooked!
Our session will be taking place:
Tuesday 19th (19 – 20:30)
Saturday 23rd (11-12:00)
And there is no need to book, just turn up! More info about this event is HERE.
Don’t miss out! Enquire about our parties now! Our bookings are going up and if you attended any of our parties last year, you will know why!
