is hosting a "Rusty Racquets" day from 1pm on Sunday
28th April 2013.
Anyone at all,
members, friends, etc, can join Mark Kleingeld & Ed
Rudge, two of our club coaches, to see what it is
like playing on our beautiful courts, and whether
you would like to start playing or return to the
sport. It is designed to be FUN - I expect the
coaches will devise handicap matches & competitions.
I promise that no-one will criticise anyone, and
there will be many laughs!! Oldest racquet wins a
prize. Spare (more modern) racquets available to
borrow if needed. The afternoon will be entirely
free. Doctor & nurse (that's Jacqueline & me) will
