CLUB CHRISTMAS CLOSURE

As happens every year, the Club will be closed over the holiday period while our staff take a vacation and we complete the end-of-year audit of bar stocks, with the Club Censor, our internal auditor.

The Bar and Restaurant will therefore be closed for the end-of-year audit and holidays from 7:45 pm on Sunday, December 18th, reopening on Monday, January 2nd. During this time there will be no access to the Club interior upper level and the Queen’s Room.

External facilities, the gym, and the changing rooms will be accessible from 9 am to 3 pm on the weekdays before Christmas (Monday 19th to Friday 23rd).  Members will be able to play tennis, use the gym and use the Club grounds as well as the changing rooms and showers. External cleaners will come in once while our in-house team are on holiday – please, as always, leave the changing rooms as you would like to find them.

The Club will be completely closed from 3 pm on Friday, December 23rd until 9 am on  Monday, January 2nd, 2023.

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season, and hoping to see many of us at our Christmas Black Tie Dinner on Saturday, December 10th.

Tuesday 6 December 2022

An anti-wasp specialist came on Sunday 17 July to deal with a wasp's nest that had been found on the Club House terrace.

The nest was eradicated with success and an additional check will be made this Wednesday to verify that no wasps remain between the wooden planks located above the Club House window panes.
In addition, a whole series of wasp traps have been installed around the swimming pool as well as on the terrace and in the various gardens around the Club.

They have already helped to eradicate hundreds of wasps with quite a few hornets.
We shall continue to monitor the traps regularly during the summer and refill them with a specially manufactured liquid.

Nevertheless, at the pool, it is safer and recommended to walk to the footbath keeping your shoes on to avoid getting stung under your feet.

With the heat, most of the wasps want to go and drink the water around the pool.
Please be careful when you go swimming though the wasp situation this year seems less serious than what it was back in 2003 during the August heatwave.
