Golf at the Club Day - Saturday Jun 24th 4.30pm - Free!

Golf is one of the oldest and most enjoyed games around. People who love golf come in all ages, from toddlers to 90-year-olds. You get to feel the sunshine on your shoulders while completing a challenge and enjoying a day with friends, or at least others who love the game as much as you do. Golf is just plain fun. Come and try it at the club on the playing field! You'll be surprised! (Did we mention it's free?)

Cricket - Kent Tour - 27/28 May

The annual SAC tour of Kent occurred last weekend. It was a successful tour both on and off the field, with some good cricket played and an excellent time had by all. Thanks are particularly owed to our kind hosts, the Band of Brothers CC, Shepway Stragglers CC and Smarden CC, and to tour manager Robin Groom for his organisational expertise. An honourable mention must go to Shravan Kumar and Sameer Shetty for flying all the way from India to join the tour!!
