NEW COURT / CLUB SESSIONS
Work is moving on fast with the BUILDING OF OUR NEW SINGLE COURT. The final stage, laying the new surface, will start later this week, and if the weather’s kind the court should be open and ready for play in the first part of next, hopefully about Tuesday 10th. Talking of Tuesdays, our TUESDAY CLUB SESSIONS have now moved to the afternoon, starting every week at 1.30. So if you’re free and haven’t got a game arranged, come and join in. So our CLUB SESSIONS are now on TUESDAY AFTERNOONS, 1.30 TILL 3.30, and SUNDAY AFTERNOONS, 1.30 TILL 3.30. Everyone is very welcome.
The Winter League season starts this coming weekend.
GOOD LUCK to all our teams!
