Looking after the Club over summer

While the Club will be closed for a few weeks, you are very welcome to come down and work off those Christmas hams on court… and if there’s a bar person around, please ask if they’d be kind enough to get you a cold drink if you fancy it! Eftpos only as the bar fairies are having a break.

However (bossy mother alert) the cleaning fairies are also having some time off, so please keep the place tidy and clean for others and MOST importantly…

PLEASE (and I mean this in a caring-but-don’t-mess-with-me way) please make sure if you’re the last person out, that all doors and windows are closed and locked shut. Wouldn’t it be awful if someone came in and ruined the place and robbed all our money?!

The office closes today and reopens on Monday 13th January. Email will be monitored if you have any queries or new member / referral enquiries but otherwise, relax and have a great break!

Wear sunscreen and lifejackets and look after your and everyone else’s loved ones out there on those roads.
