NEW SENIOR MEMBERS
Senior Club sessions take place on Sunday afternoons from 2.00 p.m. and Tuesday evenings from 6.00 p.m. Though these sessions continue to be well attended it is always nice to encourage new members to join us. To this end we have introduced an 'Invitation to Friends' initiative. This initiative allows members to bring a friend along to three social sessions (either Tuesday evenings or Sunday afternoons). The usual visitor's fee of £1 is not payable but visitors attending Tuesday evening sessions maybe required to pay the £2.00 floodlight fee.
Whilst all members are welcome to attend club sessions it is realised that some members may feel inhibited; either because they feel their playing standard isn't up to scratch, or because they are new members who haven't made contact with existing members. Saturday afternoons are usually quiet and a good time to get rid of those 'playing nerves'. If you need a partner or an opponent please ring Peter Dixon who has kindly offered to put players in touch with each other you never know, it may be the partnership of a lifetime. Peter can be contacted on 015395 63299
