The number of players on Tuesday afternoons has been growing steadily for some time and is generally higher than the turn out on Monday evenings. We were close to having to turn people away.
We have been using the Sports Lounge, accessible through the changing rooms. Players are getting used to this arrangement, and some even enjoy the peace and quiet! We had some problems with the signal to the tablets to begin with, but we seem to have solved those now.
This means our capacity on Tuesday afternoons is now around fifteen tables, so you don’t have to worry about getting a space.
Mondays are also getting busier with new members, and people returning from those early summer holidays and the local and Warwickshire based leagues having finished for the summer. On the Monday before last we had to turn people away.
The Sports Lounge is used during the school term, but is available over the summer. This means that in August we will be able to expand into it. We could be able to use it until September when numbers will probably fall off slightly as the Leagues restart.
However, we recommend, especially if you are coming some distance, that you arrive at least fifteen minutes early, preferable twenty, on a Monday if you want to be sure of a game.
