This Sunday (4 May), 3-6pm: Champagne Shuffle. This is an American tournament (i.e. mixing around, playing several rounds with different partners) with liberal helpings of sparkling wine between and during matches for an entertaining twist. £7.50 entry includes plenty of drinking and a mid-afternoon tea of sandwiches and cake. All standards very much welcome. There will be a trip to the Crown and Greyhound quiz afterwards too. The day after is a Bank Holiday of course (with club play from 2.30pm). No need to ‘sign up’ for the Shuffle, just come along on the day.

Saturday 24 May: Handicap Tournament Finals Day. Some close matches and exciting finishes almost guaranteed, with food afterwards.

Wednesday 28 May – Tango and Steak night at the newly crowned ‘best Argentinian restaurant in London’

Saturday 7 June: Camber trip to the Epsom Derby – one of Britain’s great free days out. You just need to bring some picnic materials and a few quid to bet on the horses if you wish.
