Wimbledon Ballot 2019 - Please opt in

To participate in next year's Wimbledon ticket ballot you have to be a member of British Tennis (BT) and to opt in specifically to the 2019 ballot. Last year nearly 300 of us did so. So far, only 111 have opted in. So, please can you now do so before it's too late. You can either login to the LTA website, if you're a member, and opt in or call them on 020 8487 7000. The latter will be easier if you are opting in for multiple family members. If you have yet to become a BT member, you can do so for free via the LTA website, providing you affilate to Brondesbury, which is in the LTA's Middlesex region. 

Next Talk This Sunday

The series of club talks begun recently by Richard Abramson, with his 'Vengeance in Venice", continues this Sunday, Nov 11, when I will talk on 'Political stability depends on sentiment, not reason - the great debate in print between Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine over the French Revolution'. The bar will be open from 6pm and the talk will start at 6:30pm. 

I hope to see you then.

Second Sunday Talk - Nov 11

A few weeks ago, Richard Abramson gave an excellent and well-attended talk entitled 'Vengeance in Venice', explaining his unusual take on Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. 

The talk series continues on Sunday, Nov 11, with a talk I will be giving. It's entitled 'Political stability depends on sentiment, not reason - the great debate between Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine over the French Revolution'. The bar will be open from 6pm and the talk will start promptly at 6:30pm. Please come along and encourage any friends or family to attend as well. 

The talk series will continue in the new year with a talk by Sean Baine entitled ' Ireland from the Ice Age to Brexit – a short history'. It is scheduled for Sunday, Jan 20th.

I hope to see you at the club on Nov 11th.
