Club Competitions on Notice Board – NOW!

Frances and Bob have produced wonderful draw sheets on the large red noticeboard adjacent to hte Men’s changing room.

Please arrange the date to play within 10 days and put date on sheet.  (You don’t have to play the first round within 10 days just fix the date to play it)


If you’re not heading off on the tour to Potters w/c 27th, this is a good time to get early rounds in as there are no leagues that week.  Just a thought!

Sunday 12th November – Mixed Friendly v West Surrey BA – Home at 2.00 pm

A Lot of fun and banter was shared on Sunday afternoon.  Our Match Captain Peter T enjoyed winding the oppostion up – he could do that as he usually plays for them.  He also managed to get top rink with Laurence, Ann B & Alan B, after a slow start.

Well done to George’s team on their win too.  Dawn & Norman’s teams came second – oops!


Lovely hot meal from Kim which was very welcome on a crisp autumn evening.  Thanks to Frances on her first stint behind the bar and thanks to everyone else who helped around the club with various others tasks.

A Sad Farewell to Arthur Carter

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of long time member and former Cambridge Park President, Arthur Carter, yesterday.

Arthur and Betty had enjoyed a lunch together for Betty’s birthday, when it was time for him to depart this earth.

Although he hadn’t played for the last couple of years, Arthur was familiar figure on the outdoor green, with his outstretched leg and very large woods heading off down the green.  A man who upheld the traditions of the game with pride and had a delightful sense of humour.

Our thoughts to Betty and family.

Funeral details to follow.

Open Evenings – Thank You!

What a fantastic turn out by club members helping all our visitors last week.   Thank you so much.

We have some new members and some taking up the offer of coaching sessions before committing to membership.

The coaching sessions will be on Saturday 11th, 18th, 25th November and probably the last one on 2nd or 9th December depending on who will be around to help.
