The sun has been shining and hopefully a little taster of how fabulous our Club will be when better weather does arrive. Although let’s hope that we haven’t just had our summer! For the next few days, at least, good weather is with us before we are sharply reminded that we are only at the beginning of spring! Anyway, as we look ahead, a date for your diaries please. Saturday 21st May will be our first Club Open Day of the Summer (and for some years!). We will be pulling out all the stops to entice more new Members to come and join our Club. However we hope this will be a day for you too to enjoy the Club and see for yourselves what we can offer plus we’ll have food on offer too. We’ll have more details of all the plans we have and exciting offers that we’ll have on the day in due course.

Back to now. This weekend we are at full tilt. Sunday’s Mother’s Day Lunches and teas have sold out. Great news! Apologies if you didn’t make a booking this time around. That said, there are sometimes some last minute cancellations so do feel free to get in touch with Glenys via the office to see if there’s any last minute availability. We have opened bookings for Easter Day Sunday Lunch on Sunday 17th April and we are filling up fast. If you haven’t made your booking yet? Now is the time to do so! You can see the menu and book here.

Meanwhile, why not pop in for a drink over the weekend?

On Saturday 9th April we’ll be hosting another exciting event. It’s fizz night and we will be welcoming Busi Jacobsohn, the English Sparkling Wine producers, to the Club. The owners Susanna and Douglas will be taking us through their three amazing sparkling wines. Their Brut, Rosé and for the first time outside of the vineyard, their new Blanc de Noirs. It should be a really special evening. Chef has put together a paired menu and we’ll be pulling out all the stops! We’re getting booked up but if you want to book your spaces? Please do book now. We’d love you to experience their internationally renowned sparkling wines and to enjoy a super fun evening at the Club and there will be special offers on the night to buy fizz at the Bar or order discounted cases for your own consumption!

As I am sure you’re aware by now, the Club will be hosting Easter camps for both tennis and squash. If you want to book your juniors in? Do so now as we’re getting very busy! All the details are online.

If you are interested please do get in touch with Ann Evander or Richard Everett via the office and they’d be delighted to help you get involved!

Getting Involved
We are always on the lookout for those of you who’d be interested in getting involved in organising social events.
