8th March 2019 News

The Club's activities have been taking a break for the most part during the school holidays. However, to occupy the young there was a Squash Camp to keep them fit and busy.

(The Junior Indoor Cricket at Morangis was postponed.) 

Ladies Tennis: On Tuesday our valiant ALT's team battled the weather to inflict a 2-1 victory over TC Plessis-Robinson. The team next takes on Montrouge next Tuesday.

There's been very little (no?) action in the Snooker Tournament recently, which means that there are lots of matches yet to be played in the next few weeks so that all four tournaments can complete in a timely manner. So please, please do your best to complete your matches as soon as possible!

What's coming this weekend and after

Pam and Monica will be offering Fitness and Yoga sessions this Saturday 9th; Pam's new Fitness term starts on Monday 11th and Monica will be back with a full Yoga programme on Wednesday 13th.

In fact, this weekend is going to be a busy one; not only with the 6 Nations Rugby in its penultimate stage but also an opportunity to see, hear, and meet the author Stephen Clarke on the subject of “1000 years of annoying the French: who laughs last?" at dinner on Saturday evening.

On Sunday 10th our Footballers will swing back into action against the British school.
