The clay courts are now open!
The Standard Athletic Club is hidden in the forest of Meudon just minutes from the Etoile.
It is Paris's premier International English-speaking Sports and Social Club, the perfect place for all the family to play sports casually or competitively or just relax and enjoy the social life.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
The clay courts are now open!
Junior cricket starts again in the first week of May with sessions until school break-up in July and starting again at the end of August on Saturday mornings. All are welcome, including beginners.
The senior cricket season kicks off Friday 1st May with the visit of renowned Kent club, Band of Brothers (Est. 1858), for a two match fixture.
Junior Tennis holiday course - there are still 6 places left for next week for over 10's and under 10's. Still time to sign up.
The dates of our 2 activities this month: our daytime workshop will be on Friday 24th April at the SAC and our evening tournament will be on Tuesday 28th April at Chaville.
Unfortunately some members decided to visit the clubhouse this weekend. Once again may we remind you that for safety reasons it is forbidden for people to enter the clubhouse until the work is finished unless they have been specifically invited and authorised so to do.
For safety reasons, please, PLEASE could all members make sure they shut the gate with the hook on top of the gate when entering and leaving the club. We do not want people just pushing the gate and wandering in, nor children wandering out.
Junior Football players, coaches and parents are all savouring a well-deserved holiday before the final push until the end of the season. From 1st May onwards there are to be NO STUDS on the pitch, in deference to our cricketers - of which many of our junior footballers are part.
The season ended on a 2-1 bitter defeat for the Sunday XI at the hands of FIFFA. With a number of results just slightly showing we had improved on previous seasons, we were looking to make the most of our last home game.
The ALT's team won 3-1 against Châtenay-Malabry and finish either 1st or 2nd of their pool. This means they are through to the "tableau final" which starts after the holidays beginning of May.
The Golf Section held its traditional spring golf weekend at Hardelot from 17-19 April. The weekend was very well supported – 36 took part, of which 34 golfers. Several non Standard Athletic Club members were invited this time, and we all enjoyed sunny, if chilly, weather. In addition, and this seems to be a constant for us golfers, the wind always seemed to be unfavourable….
It is not without some emotion that we wish to inform members that Patrick Burguin is retiring on 30th April after 39 years of loyal and dedicated service to the Club. We will be honouring Patrick at a cocktail party late April, details of which will be communicated later. There is still time to make a contribution to a richly deserved retirement/leaving present, please see Frédéric Sumeire (cheques only, payable to SAC please).
There are still some lockers available for reservation for members on a first come first served basis; 40€ until 31st August and then 125€ per annum (September to August).
The end is in sight and the works are nearing completion with our deadline of end of April still on the cards.
So that we can organise the inspection from the town hall officials on April 29th/30th, we need to move all the furniture and accessories back in so that the Club will be in an operational condition by that date.
Second hand Snooker/Billiard Competition Table. Price 7000€ (negotiable) includes delivery and assembly in the Paris region.
OK… it doesn’t matter that you didn’t adhere to all your New Year resolutions, Spring is a perfect time to start anew. And why not get in shape with monyoga classes at the SAC.
SAC monyoga classes take place every Wednesday at 9.30am-11am and every Thursday at 10am-11.30am
The Ladies' Tennis section is looking for players for the 2015 RAQUETTES FFT team.
