Club Update 11th November

Just a few updates this week:


Communications Officer


I am sure you will all join me in thanking Roger Marsden for keeping us all informed of club news, events and scores in his weekly ‘Update’ for so many years. I am now going to be the new Comms Officer and ask that you to send any notices to me, at, for inclusion in the weekly newsletter.


’Boggle’ Night


Our next event is on Saturday 24th November at 7.30pm. Pip Anand and Terry White will be organising an evening of Boggle. If you are not sure what this is or how to play, join us and find out! Tickets are £7 for members and £8 for non members which will include a hot supper prepared by our usual caterer. There is a sign-up sheet on the notice board and tickets in advance will be on sale at club sessions.


Court Floodlights


The new control box now operates all 6 floodlit courts. Instructions on how to use the control box are beneath the box. Tokens for 30 minutes are available from the kitchen drawer as before. The lights can also be operated by use of an override switch located on the right hand side of the box. Each Captain will have a key (for use in club sessions) and a key was put into the key box in the disabled toilet on Friday. Use of this key outside of club sessions requires payment to be made in the usual way.


Directions for use (which are also beneath the box):

  1. Insert the key (in a horizontal position with the key edge facing outwards)
  2. Use the up and down arrows on the control panel to select the court (2 to 7)
  3. Turning the key one quarter turn clockwise and back to the horizontal position will add 3 minutes, a second quarter turn clockwise and back to the horizontal position will add further 30 minutes and so on.
  4. Cancelling lights = at the bottom of the keypad press ‘0’ and ‘CLR’ buttons at the same time to switch off the lights.

We have obtained permission by amendment of our existing planning applications to allow us to retrofit our courts 4, 5, 6 and 7 with new LED lights. This work will commence on 3rd December. Work will be carried out during the day on two courts at a time. There is an outside chance that on some evenings we might be down to 4 floodlit courts however we are hopeful that all courts will be available. Again we ask for your patience whilst the work is being done.


Match Results


The men’s third team lost to a strong Dulwich 6th team last weekend, but Reedham were just a couple of tiebreaks away from bringing home a draw.


Have a nice week,
