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.

Monday 5 December 2022

Saturday, the 10th of September saw us entertain one of our long-term sporting rivals in both Cricket and Football, The Kerala Tuskers.
Due to the weather front situated over the IDF both Captains agreed to a reduced 25 overs, with stand-in captain Andrew winning the toss and electing to bat (he is good at something).
With the French national captain as one of our trialists people were looking forwards to a captaining masterclass from the SAC skipper.
SAC put a useful 179 runs on the board with Suobin high scoring with 48 and Sachin adding an aggressive 34 towards the innings close.
Tuskers took the field and were soon 1 down for 1 run off 4 balls, then the rain came. Match abandoned. 
The French captain, well he missed out on an education.
