Junior Copper Tournament
We have recently hosted a very successful junior squash tournament which was open to 9 to 17 year old juniors from Middlesex and the home counties. There were about 60 matches played throughout the day. The club was buzzing and there was a great atmosphere all round. Congratulations and thanks to Jo Bennett and family for organising such a well run event! We are firmly back on the map of the junior circuit and are planning to run another event on February, 11th. A big THANK YOU also to Barbara, Carole, Steph and Isobel for their hard work in the kitchen. We made £140 profit and the bar was very busy too ;-). Thank you all for being part of the OP team and giving your active support!!

Whilst the weather is rather unpredictable these days, I am delighted to say that last Sunday we were very fortunate as we had a fantastic OPEN DAY on a grey but at least DRY day with lots of sunny spells ;-). The club was heaving with visitors including many families and children of all playing standards, as well as people who came to see us for a day out and savour one or two delicious burgers or cakes 😉 It was truly amazing and I would like to thank everyone who helped make this day such a wonderful event. See the attached pictures. We signed up 20 adults, 27 children and 1 student and have now followed up with everyone else who has left us contact details.
Our next promotional event will be the ‘Love Whetstone’ day on the High Road, which is on Sunday 4th June. I will remind you next week, but do put the date in your diary please. We will have a stand on the High Road and I am still looking for volunteers who can man our stand for an hour or so as I will have to return to the club to welcome visitors during the day.
As you have noticed, we were recently cleaning our macadam courts and will soon do the second part of the project, which is repainting and repairing loose bits. I will confirm the date as soon as possible. Starting on the 12th June we will refurbish the front courts on the right, as they are getting slippery because of the rather compacted sand.
You will have seen the new NO PARKING signs in the car park. We noticed that more cars which come in, now tend to turn round and exit straight away. If you see them leave their cars, please tell non facility users to exit without delay as the car park is now monitored and fines may be issued.
A big thank you to our member Matt Moore who is working very hard on replacing the grating in the car park. This work was well overdue as the rain water could no longer drain off which started causing us problems.
As I am writing this email, we have the Racketball finals night. If you can, do still pop in and watch our competitors. There will be a finger buffet afterwards and you are welcome to stay.
Later on this evening, the social committee will have their pools and darts night again. Feel free to take part.

There will be lots of activities on the day and we encourage anyone who wants to take up membership to do so, as we will give a 20% discount off the annual subscription rate. This offer is valid on the Open Day only, so please encourage your friends and family to sign up ;-). The special deal will also extend to gym and squash memberships. Please spread the word!
For the Open Day you can either book your place online or just turn up. If the system says that the session is full up, don’t worry and come anyway. You can always have a hit with your friends on one of the courts 😉
This is the link to the Open Day programme. Please share it with your friends:
Swimming Pool: I would like to remind you that on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, our members may use the swimming pool free of charge. This arrangement is for members of any category and grants them free use of the pool on Saturdays and Sundays from April to September, between 4 pm and 5.45pm (in 40 minutes slots). Please tell the receptionist your name and membership category when you arrive.
Please note that between the 12th and 14th June our front artificial grass courts will be cleaned. Unfortunately you won’t be able to use these three courts during this period but the result will be worth waiting for ;-). Our macadam courts will soon be pressure washed as well, but we don’t have a date yet. I will let you know as soon as possible.
Thanks to everyone who attended the tournament last Monday with over 20 people taking part.
