The club is holding its annual open day on Sunday 5th July from 12pm till late.
It’s a great opportunity for you to introduce the Club to your friends and family, play some tennis, watch some cricket and get involved.
Read on to see what’s happening this year:
- 12pm – Cricket v Tennis football match – open to men and women (sign up in the club house if you want to play)
- 12pm onwards – free social play on all courts for members, friends and family
- BBQ and Bar from 12pm organised jointly by cricket and tennis
- Tennis speed gun – test the speed of your serve with prizes for the winners
- Bring and Buy stall
- Great British Bake Off – to be judged (we hope) by Catherine West MP
14.00 HCC vs World XI cricket invitational
15.30 Bowl off competition
More info will be added in the coming weeks, but spread the word…
Our first Bring and Buy stall needs donations, from treasured toys to side-lined smellies, given-up gifts and once-loved objects. There is a black bin bag in the bar to drop any donations off from this week plus you can bring along on the day.
We will also be running a Great British Bake Off competition with a surprise local celebrity judge. It’s a chance for you to get your buns out, play with some nuts and avoid soggy bottoms as we ask you to bake, whip and knead something delicious for us. Sweet or savoury, there are no rules, it just has to go down a treat. There’ll be prizes on the day and if you can give your effort a tennis/cricket/sport related name, there are additional points. (Think ‘Tia Maria Sharapova Cheesecake’ or ‘Wally Hammond Egg Flag’).
We’d also love some volunteers to help us run the stalls on the day; even an hour of your time would be a great help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
