Social Activities - 2013/2014
Wednesday 11th September
First club night and free taster session
We got off to a cracking start with about twenty people playing, including a couple of new faces. It's looking good for a busy season.
Friday 18th October
Pub Games night
Ahh, yes. Remember the good old days, when beer was 1/6d a pint and electronic toys hadn't been invented? When a trip to the pub might involve darts, dominoes, and shove ha'penny games?
When a ha'penny, combined with a threepenny bit and passed over the bar, got you a packet of crisps containing a little blue bag of salt? Well no, we don't remember either, because we're all too young. So the games night was a pleasant novelty for us.
Six teams competed, expertly sheperded by Chairman Graham, Secretary Linda and Match Secretary Rod. Team Teapots topped the table, with Sid Park Rangers second. The Movers were third.
The generous donation of raffle prizes and purchase of tickets boosted the takings from the event, raising over £100 for the club.
Wednesday 18th December
Christmas Fun Tournament
The usual lighthearted larking about accompanied the contest, with someone putting black bags over the nets. The shuttlecock appeared late and shorter players didn't appear at all.
Anyway, the winners were Paul Carter and new member Mo Borer, with Harry Williams and Ann Poval runners up. Chairman Graham and Secretary Linda congratulated the winners, then handed out the Secret Santa festive gifts to the assembled members.
