Happy 2023 to one and all!

SABC continue to ensure that members play in as safe an environment as is possible. There are air filter units in use on both floors of the the clubhouse. The number of tables is limited to 10 and half on the ground floor. If table numbers exceed this for any game, the room is split and upstairs is used. We welcome all members to the clubhouse but if unwell we ask that members stay home to limit the spread of infection.
