Jubilee Tennis – Monday 4 June, 10am - midday
The Club has been invited to join the village’s jubilee celebrations and we will be holding an open tennis session on Monday 4th June with free coaching and use of the ball machine from 10-12. We are particularly encouraging non-members so if you have any friends or family who have not joined but you would like to have a hit with, please bring them down to join in the fun.
Black Tie Bash – September 15
On Saturday 15th September we are having an evening of dinner and dancing at the Beetle & Wedge in Moulsford. It will start at 7.30pm with bubbles and canapés, hopefully on the beautiful terrace overlooking the river, followed by a three course dinner and a disco. Tickets are £45 per person, which will cover our costs – this is a social event, not a fundraiser. A coach from Benson Parish Hall car park will depart at 7.15pm and return at midnight, costing £5-8 per head depending on numbers. Dress code is black tie. We only have 80 tickets available for this event, so don't hang about, book yours now. Tables of 10 or individual tickets can be reserved with annie.smith10@ yahoo.co.uk or 01491 838694 using the attached application form.
We now have samples in all adult sizes for our wonderful new Club fleeces which cost just £20 per each (the junior ones are coming shortly). It’s just the weather for selling them! You are welcome to come and try on samples on at club night – ask the person on duty to hook out the samples in the store room - and place your order using the attached form. We will only order enough fleeces for those people who have pre-ordered, so be sure to reserve yours as soon as possible.
American Tournament – 24 June, 10am - midday
