18th March 2020
Following the escalating Coronavirus situation and Government advice to avoid hospitality venues, the Management Committee has made some important decisions regarding the Club opening hours, staff levels and upcoming events/classes.
CLUBHOUSE OPENING HOURS from Saturday 21st MARCH
The Clubhouse will remain open, but with reduced staffing levels
THE FRED PERRY CAFE will be open every day
from 9am to 2pm
THE TOP BAR will open as follows:
Mon - Tues - CLOSED
Wed, Thurs, Fri - 5pm to 10pm
Sat - 2pm to 10pm
Sun 12pm to 2pm
These hours will be reviewed over the next week or so, and may be altered as a result.
OUTDOOR OPENING HOURS
The tennis courts will remain open as usual, and the grounds will be prepared as normal for the upcoming cricket, bowls and grass court season.
Almost all events, classes and private functions for the next 2 months have been cancelled. The Club will still take provisional bookings for the longer term in the hope the situation improves.
The AGM scheduled for March 26th will be postponed, and will hopefully take place later in the year.
Photocopies of the Annual Report will be available in the clubhouse, especially for those not on email. If you know of members without email, please pass on the message. Noticeboards will be updated.
Finally we urge you to follow Government guideliness as outlined in our earlier email. The Management Committee will be monitoring the changing situation and will communicate any changes to our current policy. Meanwhile, we wish you all good health, and trust we can get back to some kind of normality in the not too distant future.
The Management Committee
