The club held it's very first club afternoon on Wednesday 20th April. The weather was perfect with warm temperatures, blue skies and a gentle breeze. The idea was to encourage more social contact between members in a sport that can often be just one to one. It was very kindly organised by Tony and Helen Hudson and a few willing volunteers. The lawns were laid out as half lawns and 14 point games were played to keep them short and sweet. Tea and coffee was available throughout plus gorgeous cakes and scones. Everyone agreed that it was a very pleasant and friendly occasion. The next one will be on Wednesday 18th May and every third Wednesday of the month through the season. It is hoped that even more members will be able to come.
