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

The Club has 6 wonderful red cedar benches(by the sports field and in the pool area) — time had not been kind, and they were worn and, in the case of 10 of the 30 boards, rotten.

The old benches have now been restored to give us:
* 4 spectacular red cedar benches
* 2 oak benches from the 10 new boards (since red cedar wood can no longer be bought in France)

Thanks to the team who have worked on this for the past 5 months, particularly to Andrew Jackson and John Hardy as well as Caroline and Patrick.

We have 6 wooden benches around the Club (by the sports field and in the pool area). They were beginning to suffer a little. 

The most heavily damaged wood is being replaced with new oak. Thanks to Andrew Jackson for the great carpentry work.
