Sports, Social Activities and More!


Following on from the Prime Minister’s address to the nation yesterday, all facilities, including the tennis courts and outdoor bowls green, are completely closed until further notice. David, our groundsman, will continue to maintain the bowls green and tennis courts so they will be ready for play once restrictions are lifted.

The Executive Committe will continue to meet weekly, and will monitor the situation closely. We will keep all members informed as things change.

At a time when tennis and outdoor bowls renewals are currently due, we would ask members to support the club by paying their renewal promptly. We exist solely for our members, and whilst every effort is being made to keep outgoings to a minimum at the present time, we do have ongoing expenses and rely on your support. At the present time, payment by bank transfer would be greatly appreciated, but if that is not possible, you may still post a cheque to the club address.

Please do adhere to the Government advice on hygiene and social distancing, stay fit and well, and we’ll look forward to seeing you all when restrictions are lifted.
