Our Club
All Evening Sessions To Start From 7:00 p.m.

The committee has decided to trial a 7:00pm start time for all evening sessions from  October 1st 2022.

Please ensure you arrive at the club by 6:55pm at the very latest.

This is being implemented as we understand that we have lost a number of members because of late finishing times and therefore we need to address that issue, by starting and finishing earlier.We have also noticed that most Warwickshire clubs have a start time of 7:00pm for evening sessions.

We have listened to feedback and understand that there are a few members who are still working and may find it difficult to arrive at the club by 7.00pm.

If you are one of those who may be arriving late then as long as the TD is aware he/she will make allowances to ensure that you and your partner can play.

Either by giving you the first sit out, delaying the start or whatever else seems appropriate on the night.

If you will be arriving late please:

Either ensure your partner arrives promptly before 7:00 and informs the TD of your late arrival

Or if both partners are arriving late telephone the club on 07749 410362, it may help you to have this number recorded in your phone.

Anyone arriving late without notification after the movement has been set up will unfortunately be unable to play.
