The good news is that squash is now allowed again. It is possible to play on court number 2, while court 1 is still closed for repair work.
The clubhouse reopens on Monday 22 June, so entry to the squash courts is though the main entrance. Note that the showers and changing rooms are still closed.
Players should book the court via the ADSL reservation system.

2020 Tennis Tournament

Registration for the tournamant may be done online here. Sunday 12 July is the last day for registration. The first matches start from Thursday 16 July.  Finals Day is on Saturday 26 September.

Progressive opening of the Club

The good news is that while the Club’s indoor facilities remain closed, we are now able to offer members access to most of the club’s outdoor areas on a much less constricted basis, within the limits of the guidelines and recommendations of the authorities and sporting federations - effective immediately. (Don't forget to sign the rules acceptance form...)

Golf News: Business is booming!

Three events are planned for the SAC golfers: June Monthly Competition (next Saturday 6th), Summer Eclectic (July/August) and (potentially) Mixed Matchplay (now to October). 

First steps towards opening of the Club

The measures announced by the Mairie de Meudon and the Prefecture are extremely strict. Initially the Club will only be open for tennis players with a maximum of 10 persons on the site at one time. Only singles matches will be allowed on the three hard courts according to strict rules of access, circulation and hygiene.
The only entry to the Club will be by the 'cricket' gate which will be manned. Nobody without an ADSL tennis reservation will be admitted. The clubhouse, changing rooms and toilets will remain closed, and all other areas in the grounds apart from those immediately adjacent to the tennis courts will be out of bounds.
Tennis should start as from the morning of Saturday 16 May (see this article).

Cricket News - New season approaching

A new season is almost upon us. Our team consists of full and seasonal members of the Club. Full members will already have paid this year's subs. The Section's activities are financed through seasonal memberships and match dues (€10 per home fixture) with all our funds reinvested in cricket at the Standard. For Seasonal Membership, the application form is attached to the main article. The price this year is €410 Including your own SACC whites, available in all sizes. For those wishing to pay early, there is an "early-bird" discount price of €375 for the season, available for memberships paid before 30th April 2020.  

Golf News - Section Competition Saturday 14th

Last Saturday's Section Competition was a Scramble 'à la française' (player of the selected ball doesn't play that shot). The winning team was S. Hall + J. Delacroix+ D. Colson + R. Bouloux with 43 points
Golf courses are closed so golfers will have to go back to those winter activities of carpet putting and chipping into the sofa (preferably with plastic balls!)

Golf Clubs Open

Yes, golfers are now free to chase that little ball around the countryside. Villarceaux in particular for our Section Members, but also other local courses such as Feucherolles, Noisy, Haras Lupin, and Jardy are also opening shortly if not today.
