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

The last game of the season started late last Sunday due to the Paris-Versailles fun-run. After Chantilly were put in to bat, they scored 267 runs off 35 overs, their opening batter Ali staring with 114 runs. A tough day for SAC’s bowlers, as Money, Shakeel and Henry ended up taking 5 wickets between them.
Having chased an identical target last Sunday, SAC’s batters were not overawed by the total and realised that a run rate of 7 per over was required from the start. After one of the openers departed with the score at 20, new player Adil came to the crease. SAC’s number 3 soon settled in and with the support of Mani, the score raced along before the latter was caught for 80. Having amassed an incredible 163-run partnership, SAC now required 85 runs off the last ten overs which they chased down with four overs to spare!
The result – an 8-wicket victory for Standard Athletic CC

Two back-to-back victories were a fitting end to the 2022 season for the cricket section at the Standard Athletic Club.
