2014 Tennis League Starts 14th April

Posted: April 7, 2014 at 3:00 pm

The singles tennis leagues are restarting on Monday 14th April. To join up please send Patrick Jones your contact details (ideally mobile & landline) & preferred starting division assuming 4 divisions with 1 being the strongest.

To keep matches to about an hour or so, the first player to win 9 games wins the match. To encourage people to play, points are awarded as follows: 2 points for playing a match, 1 point for each game won and 3 points for winning the match i.e. a maximum of 14 points per match. Typically the two players with the most points will be promoted and the two with the fewest will be demoted. See the clubhouse board for the detailed rules!

Good luck and have fun!

Squash Club Night Launch

Posted: March 17, 2014 at 10:51 pm

We’ve discussed the results of the survey for the relaunch of club night and decided the following…

Club night will be from 7.40-9.00pm on a Monday night. The initial format for club night is going to be flexible until we find out how many people turn up. We will start by sticking to traditional scoring, unless there are large numbers and the matches will be best of 2 games. The format for launch night on Monday the 24th of March 2014 will be (roughly):

6.20pm Warm up hosted by Amanda
7.00pm Club night will start
8.20pm Pizza and nibbles
8.45pm Wine tasting hosted by Richard Maspero (subject to interest)

Hopefully this will give people the flexibility to come along some time between 6.20 and 7 then play squash for an hour before having a nice social get together upstairs in the function room.

We’ll have to request a small fee for the relaunch night if people intend to stay for food and drinks but there will be no charge for the squash. If people could email Sarah and Richard to let them know if they intend to stay on for pizza and wine so we can get numbers, that would be great. Any questions, please contact Matthew.
