August – September

In the next “What’s On” we hope to have the outcome of our planning application for the installation of court lighting: we’re in the final stages, with an ecological appraisal before WODC gives a decision.  Meanwhile…

The refurbishment of Court 4 (our single court) will be starting in the week beginning 4 September.  It’ll take the whole month and possibly longer (it’s a big job, essentially building a brand new court:  to address the multiple problems with the court we’re constructing a complete new base to raise it to the same level as our other courts, as well as laying a new surface).  But the other three courts will be unaffected throughout, and available for play as usual.  Please expect car park space to be reduced.  And please take care at all times when entering and leaving, and be understanding if there is noise or any obstruction at any point.  It’s in a very good cause!  SUNDAY TOURNAMENT, 20 AUGUST
To cheer us up after the dreary weather we’re holding a special, sociable Sunday Tournament, with the added attraction of post-match strawberries and Pimms!  It’s on the afternoon of SUNDAY 20 AUGUST It’ll be a doubles tournament with partners changing every game, so you don’t need a partner to enter.   To enter, simply email saying “Yes!  I/we want to play in the tournament on Sunday 20th!”
