Coaching Team News
Congratulations to Mark Gilbert & Greg Haynes on becoming EPA coaches. They will join the coaching team on Monday club night sessions from 4th April onwards.

The first mélée of the season will be on Saturday April 2nd at Larkhall Sports Club. Registration is at 1. 45pm, start at 2pm and finish by 5pm. Entry £3
A mélée is when all names are put in a draw and given a number. Each player is then teamed with 2 others to play. We play 4 rounds each time with a different sets of players each game. It is a good way to get to know others and to introduce new members to the club.
The winner is the person with most wins. If a draw then points difference applies. Winner wins £20.
Membership Subscriptions: are now overdue. Easiest way to pay is by bank transfer: you can pay the whole amount (£30) and Cary will sort out the EPA and GWR local precepts.
Please put your surname as the reference.
