Club Afternoons will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday starting at 1.30pm for 2pm
Partners will be drawn with play starting at 2pm with a tea break at about 4pm.
The aim is to bring the club members together, to give them a different playing experience,
raise our standards of play and learn form each other.
