16 ladies took part in a tournament yesterday...

16 ladies took part in a tournament yesterday, very ably organised by Candice Carty assisted by Karen Coombe-Whitlock. Everyone who played enjoyed themselves and albeit cold, the sun was shining.  The tournament was won jointly by Rebecca McLean and Caroline Moss.  There was a good spread for lunch provided by the players and the club was buzzing.  Normally the bar is closed at lunch time, but Steve Spinks manned the bar which made £80. The tournament made £86 after prizes and balls.  Income from tournaments like these go toward making the club a better place.   Thank you Candice and Karen; here is to more tournaments in due course!

It was absolutely great to see the club really busy on Sunday, full of youngsters and their parents and supporters as our Club hosted the 2nd annual Sundridge Park Junior Squash Open with over 65 juniors attending from all over the country.

It was absolutely great to see the club really busy on Sunday, full of youngsters and their parents and supporters as our Club hosted the 2nd annual Sundridge Park Junior Squash Open, magnificently organised by Stewart Proctor and ably assisted by precocious yoof and offspring Matt Proctor and assorted markers. Over 65 juniors attended from all over the country, some even coming from Wolverhampton, representing all ages from under 11's to under 19's  for both boys and girls.

Sales of sweets, choc bars, pop and other sugar-based confectionery were at an all time high as Sean of the Buckley Dental Practice, one of the club's revered sponsors, looked on in gleeful anticipation of future custom from today's yoof.

Sundridge Park  was well represented by Matt Proctor and the young McCulloghs - Henry and Isobel.  Matt Proctor entered both the under 15's and U17's getting to the quarter finals of the under 15s, and coming 6th  in the under 17's. Henry gained valuable experience but  was knocked out in the first round of the plate competition for the under 15's and Isobel came in a very commendable 4th in the under 13's.

Talking to parents and youngsters it was clear that everyone was having a really enjoyable time - a selection of burgers, sausages and other sure fire hits keeping Sue and Steve Spinks really busy in the kitchen- and loads of favourable comments being made about the Club and the splendid atmosphere created by both squash and tennis players and spectators.

A brilliant day was had by all, with a cameo appearance from our Squash Chair (Phil Ashton) and assorted team members to see their up and coming competition!

Many thanks to Steve and Sue Spinks for providing the catering for the day, Stewart and Matt  and all at Sundridge Park for supporting the event in every way.

Read about our recent social tennis tournament, with a French theme...

The French Open temporarily turned into a grass court event recently when 24 players were split into six teams and battled it out to see who would come out champions. There were some great rallies and lots of banter but in the end, it was the team of Peter Clay, Candice Carty, Tony Savino and new member Ivonne Coffin who prevailed. Just as the last ball was struck in anger, the heavens opened and we all sat down to some great food prepared as usual by Regina McNamara. Best dressed for the 2nd year running were the Clay family.

What are the big events coming up?

Firstly, a very big "thank you" from the Club for all the support you have given us by coming along to our social events, helping with fundraisers or by entering the squash and tennis tournaments that we run.

You may or may not be aware that all these events are raising funds for projects, including an irrigation system for our fabulous grass courts, and we are about a 1/4 of the way there! We need your continued support and your help in encouraging others to join in with the events we organise if we are to meet our £20k target.

With that in mind we'd just like to let you know events we have coming up:

  • September 11th - US Open Social Tournament: 2-6pm, tickets £8 including food. Bookings taken now!
  • October 1st - Bingo Night: Start time TBC, but a guaranteed evening of fun...and perhaps a full house!

Plus we are planning a Sporting Quiz Night, a Wine Tasting evening, a Comedy Night and much more, so keep checking the Socials Board next to the bar for more details, or go to our shop.
