A word from the Chair

As the weather warms up, more and more members are coming out to play! Sadly the last 2 Wednesdays in Queen Square have been rained off, but numbers are increasing at Larkhall on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

Terry reports that the number of views of our Facebook page now exceeds 3,600 since opening it only 5 months ago. This is where to find photos of club events and more detailed news.

Team Manager Notes

The singles ladder will start in April and runs through to September. It is a fun competition, open to everyone, and not too demanding. Email Mark if you would like to enter:
