The Club Centenary Celebrations

Founded in 1922, this year is the 100th anniversary of the Club which, particularly after all the restrictions on social activity in recent years, is an occasion to celebrate.

We will shortly be publishing a Centenary Programme of Events, which contains a list of events throughout the year, preceded by two excellent articles about the annual tournament.  Hard copies will be available from the clubhouse or you can download it in a digital format from the website.  We are also publishing a history of the club, which includes recollections from Chairman Jonathan Jempson and board member Robert Dolman.

There are two events specifically focused on celebrating the centenary: one for members on Saturday 18th June and an Open Day, for members and non-members on Tuesday 23rd August.

Further information about each of these events and the programme is provided below.

Members Event
