South Foreland Annual Barbecue

15/07/2019

Summer BBQ

Greetings Members,

It's all over for another year folks. A reasonable turnout but could be better. Many of you missing out on the fun there. The kids were in heaven. On the trampoline and just you try getting them out of the swimming pool. With the Whale, the Dolphin, the Lobster and the rubber rings, they had a "Whale" of a time. The food up to it,s excellent standard as always. Our thanks goes to Philip and his family for putting on such a good event. Lets see more of you supporting South Foreland and the efforts that go into making this event an even better success next year.

Colin

PS The whale, the Dolphin and the lobster would like to state they are glad they only have to put up with this once a year :-))

 

2019 / 2020 Season: Bank Holiday change

08/06/2019

AS Match Secretaries and clubs start to sort out next years timetable. Albeit a long way off. The May Bank Holiday has been moved from Monday the 4th to Friday the 8th. This is to commemorate VE75 (years) day. This will affect clubs in South Foreland - Folkestone, Wyndgate, Ajax. And clubs in North Foreland - Hartesdown Park, Minster, Westgate. It also means the "Bank Holiday Weekend" moves to the following weekend, so any events over the new Bank Holiday period may be affected as to turnout of players.
So those booking "Bank Holiday weekends" away etc, especially families, check it out before you book. Don't book the wrong weekend.

Free website Hosting and Domain Names by BT

29/05/2019

Have discovered that BT offer non profit organisations(clubs etc) free web sites and domain names. So for clubs a little tight on the money ( what club isn't)can get online and advertise their club details etc. Racqueteers BC of North Foreland are currently using them, so I will have a chat about it with them and see how good it is or isn't, as the case may be. It looks simple enough to register and set up. So watch this space for more info as I investigate further.

 

They thinks it's all over, It is now.

25/05/2019

The season is over. Now it,s time to rest those weary legs and arms. All players can now take a well earned rest. relax in those club nights and play with no pressure.
Thanks to all the team Captains for a good response in returning their match score sheet returns, excellent. We don't have a "Team of the season" but my vote goes to the excellent effort put up by Scorpions. If it wasn't for the last match of the season, they could only field 2 pairs thereby giving Wyndgate the mens1 title before the match even begun. With a full team and Wyndgate slightly under strength, they may well have nicked it.

See you all next season where I hope to be Match secretary once more if you give me your vote at the upcoming AGM. So turn up and VOTE
