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 24th of September saw the fourth match between Thoiry and Standard of the 2022 season. With the weather threatening to spoil proceedings, SACC fielded first with Shakeel opening the bowling and pushing Thoiry's openers onto the backfoot. After their openers had departed, their middle order steadied their innings, with Ali scoring a well-paced half-century. He was ably supported by Siva at the other end. Despite some late aggression from the tail, wickets fell at regular intervals throughout meaning that Thoiry ended their innings on 206 runs.
SACC went in to bat under grey skies, with the openers putting on a quick 30, with Adil (27 runs) scoring all around the ground. Once the openers had been dismissed, the experienced pair of Thodi (70) and Praneeth (39) took the attack to the bowlers, making the task easier for the incoming batsmen at the fall of their wickets. Jyothikumar (23) and Shakeel (21) then took SACC over the finish line with 25 balls and 4 wickets to spare.
The result – a 4-wicket victory for Standard Athletic CC
