On the sunny Easter Sunday about 20 smiling children and on the rainy and cold Monday, seven dressed in rain gear, went looking for the eggs hidden in the garden and the club grounds. A big thank you to all the parents and siblings who volunteered for helping make this joyful event happen!
The annual reconditioning of our clay courts is almost complete. It preferable to leave the courts to rest for a couple of days to allow them to dry thoroughly before playing, therefore securing the tennis season. Consequently, please expect the clay courts to open Saturday morning. Please also review the basic rules for the proper use of our courts by watering and sweeping them in a timely manner, so that that all of us can enjoy optimal game conditions until the end of the season.
In the Easter holidays from Monday 19 April to Friday 23 April, there will be a field hockey 'stage'. There will be hockey coaching in the morning from 10.30 - 12.30, then a varied programme of different sports and activities in the afternoon. See the main article for details and how to sign up.
