If you need to contact the Club please do not telephone but rather email
Reaching out to Senior Members
In these difficult times, your Club is thinking about you and how we could help you surmount the diverse problems which you might encounter as a result of the confinement to residence. Please don’t hesitate to get back to us. Many of us live not far from the Club and may be able to help you with your shopping, go to the bakery or the pharmacy for you... or perhaps you might just like a chat on the phone. If you wish to be called by telephone, please send a number at which you can be reached. Please contact us at .
Maintenance at the Club
The Management Committee and the staff are doing their very best to have the cricket pitch mown and looking beautiful ready for the season, the clay courts ready for the first tennis match, and the swimming pool ready for the first dip. The pool has much maintenance to be done but the staff is co-ordinating with the pool companies to get this ready. The marquee must also be put back in order, and mended so as to be ready for eventual events.
Thank you to the Tennis committee who have stepped in and are currently working with the staff and co-ordinating with the company to prepare the clay courts in anticipation for opening.

Croquet and Ultimate Frizz-bee
These are games that can be played by any age. Confinement is the perfect time to familiarise yourself with the rules of these two games which will be happening out on the cricket pitch in the springtime at the weekend. Watch the newsletter for details of the first session.
As soon as the cricket pitch is mown and looking beautiful, the croquet section will be out there setting up croquet on the pitch. This year we will now be able to have two croquet lawns laid out so we can have beginners on one lawn and more advanced players on the other. While you are in confinement at home, this is the perfect time to familiarise yourself with the game, and learn the rules. There are four balls in play: blue, red, black and yellow. There are 6 hoops and a centre post. Search for the laws of croquet to find out more…
