BBQ & Campout - Saturday 17th June

Our Annual BBQ and Campout on 17th June was a great success (as usual!) Special thanks to the volunteer Dads BBQ team with Justin and Stephane at the helm - and to Mario for all the organisation & Amber & Sebastien for all their help. Lots of fun & tents.

Football - "June game" vs Jouy-en-Josas, Sunday 25th June

Last Sunday, our adult football team played its traditional "June game" against Jouy-en-Josas, in Jouy-en-Josas. (Finally losing 4-2)

Harald Auss scored about 30 seconds after kick-off, which must be a SAC record!

Twenty minutes from the end the score was 2-2 (our second goal scored by Charles de Nanteuil); but then our opponents proved to be more resistant to the sun and to tiredness and scored twice to finally win 4-2.

Bravo to Yan de Catheu for captaining the team and to Joris Willey for his great goalkeeping.

New Wednesday Afternoon Activity for Children - Theatre!

Different games and improvisations, organised mainly in English, help a child’s imagination to flourish and allow them to travel through time and space. It is a fully creative activity that engages even the shy ones and allows them to "come out of their shells"

Calling all cyclists

Many members would like to explore the beautiful Forest of Meudon and the surrounding area by bicycle using the Club as a base, but don't want to haul their bikes up to the Club all the time.

As a New Offer, the SAC will look after your bicycle for you! (Offer valid from now until the 15th October 2017)

Just ask Frédéric or Mario for details.

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!!
