Club News

Just to let all members know that Tree Surgeons will be on site today, Tuesday 28th, and Wednesday
29th January between 9am & 3pm so the inner car park will be out of use. The trees at the end of the carpark are diseased and sadly need to be removed. Other trees in the car park are being pruned. Please take care when walking into the site during these times.

Members and guests may park in front of the gates, or use Harman Drive (parking restrictions apply 10-11am at the bottom end and 2-3pm at the top end) or Farm Avenue (parking restrictions apply 2pm-3pm)

We will be replanting the area later in the season.

Also

Thames Water are here sometime between 8am-1pm on Wednesday 29th January and will
be turning off the water for half an hour to read our meter.

Tennis News

Coaching

Marina Lavarello is now well established as the new head coach, with new coaching programmes for adults and children going well.

Floodlights update

The tennis court floodlights are being put in this week and next (weeks commencing November 18th and 25th), and there is likely to be some effect on court availability.

 

Cricket News

The Cricket Section now has our annual Clubmark and Accreditation. We are trying to set up an Academy with a professional coach with backing from Middlesex County Cricket Club and we would hope to have news re this project in early 2014. We will be building up to the new season from January onwards, with indoor nets starting to take place at Lord's.  We are also actively trying to recruit new members as usual for next season.

 

Squash News

The club hosted a tournament last Saturday with players from varying clubs across London. It was such a success that a regular tournament will be a feature for 2014.
The squash club now has two coaches available for individual and group lessons, Patrick Ado & Abid Khan - see website for details. The squash club is going from strength to strength but we are still looking for new members. If anyone would like to have a go or knows of people interested in playing, please spread the word about Brondesbury Squash (squash@brondesburysc.co.uk for all enquiries).

 

And lastly - just a gently reminder to park sensibly, and to respect our neighbours regarding leaving the bar late and dropping off children. Thank you!

Free Squash Coaching

 

Hi,

 

In partnership with Give It A Go we are offering free squash coaching throughout October. The sessions are every Saturday throughout October (12th, 19th & 26th). The sessions start at 11am and finish at 12:30. The whole point of the initiative is to try a new sport so don't worry if you have never picked up a squash racket before. Rackets are also provided if you don't have one.

Spaces are limited so if interested please contact squash@brondesburysc.co.uk to confirm attendance.

Thanks

 

Adam

Your Club Needs You!

A couple of vacancies have arisen among our pool of bar volunteers. We are looking for 4 or more new ones to pour drinks to members on Wednesday & Thursday evenings. The job is unpaid, you would be doing it for the good of the club and to quench the thirst of your fellow members. Positions could be weekly/fortnightly/monthly depending on your available time. Full training is supplied. This  could suit anyone wishing to squeeze in a little reading time into their busy lives (when the bar's not busy!). Please email brondesclub@gmail.com for more info.

Club AGM

This is on Sunday, Sept 15th at 7:30PM. Election for the club offices of President, Secretary, Treasurer and Bar Chairman as well as up to three elected positions will take place then. Anyone wishing to stand should email admin@brondesburysc.co.uk with a proposer and seconder.

Club Website News

The club website was taken down a few weeks ago because it got hacked and was issuing spam email. In order to recover it we have to rebuild it on a more up-to-date platform, which has taken a fair bit of time. The site has been rebuilt now and the newsletter system tailored to the club's needs as I trust you see in this email (apologies if you've received this twice). The membership system is still in the process of being moved to the new platform and we will let you know when this has been implemented. The GameFixer application depends on the membership system and will be available when that has been migrated to the new platform.
