A huge thank you to Adam Spicer who has spent many hours revising, editing and improving the overall site . It is now live and I would like to encourage you to have a look and let us have your feedback. We will do our best to ensure that it remains accurate and relevant but we do rely on your help to do this. Thank you in advance for your comments.

Social events

Saturday 21st March at The Bournemouth International Centre – Adam Spicer is about to undertake a major personal challenge by taking part in a Boxing match in front of 1500 people to raise money for cancer research in memory of his Dad ,his Grandad and his Uncle Kazuo all of whom who passed away recently from cancer. Top two largest (must be large!!!) donations will be able to: 1. Nominate his ring name! 2. Choose his walk out music!

His JustGiving page is at There is also space for four businesses to have their logos printed on the shirt that he’ll box in. A donation of at least £50 is required to do this! Please be generous! Finally, he will have a VIP table reserved for anyone who would like support him on the night. You’ll be close to the ring, have waiter/waitress service and you can cheer him on! It’s £40 per person and includes entry. Please contact Adam directly for more details.

Carolyn and Stewart Day are kindly following on their very successful quiz night last year with a slightly different set of questions and hopefully your correct answers!

A point to note £££

Sadly in spite of several requests for help no one has volunteered to take on the role of Grounds and Clubhouse Maintenance Person. So unless this changes within the next few weeks the Committee will have little choice but to consider making it into a paid role BUT this will impact on all members as we will have to find the money to pay for someone to do the work. We are in discussion about whether to ask you all for donations in the first instance as well as raising the annual membership fees.

We will keep you informed but in the mean time please let us know if you have any other ideas of how we can move ahead with confidence that the courts, grounds and club house can be maintained appropriately and crucially ensure that we remain compliant with all health and safety requirements.

Thank you to Peter Richardson, John Woodham and co for all their very hard work in the past.
