Senior Finals’ Day (Saturday 16th July) is fast approaching. The tournament is running well and some fantastic matches have been played.
The day itself, which will consist of 10 finals played on two courts, always proves to be a great success and is easily the biggest event in the club’s calendar. An order of play for the main and the plate tournaments, with timings, will be published early next week.
The works on the veranda are now progressing and we are confident the clubhouse and all the usual outdoor seating areas will be fully accessible on the day. We are also hoping for good weather.
The bar will be open from 10am and will be serving drinks (including mojitos, prosecco and Pimms). Ice poles and lollies will also be available. Payment at the bar can be made by both cash and card.
The BBQ will be serving burgers and South African boerewors sausages from around midday onwards. Vegan / vegetarian alternatives will also be served. If you wish to purchase anything from the BBQ, please pay at the bar and show your receipt when collecting your food.
Complimentary squash and water will be made available from an outside stand in the car park. Self-service tea and coffee will also be available throughout the day, with strawberries and cakes also being served from the outside stand from around 2pm. To enjoy these delicacies, and the hot drinks, please purchase a refreshments pass from the bar (£3).
As finals’ day is an opportunity to showcase our club to local residents, sponsors and prospective members, we need to ensure the club looks at its best. We recently sent out a communication for working party volunteers on the mornings of Saturday 2nd July and Sunday 10th July. If you’d like to help out on either of these dates, please contact the club’s maintenance co-ordinator, Katherine Willis, by email email@example.com
In order for the day to run smoothly, we will need your help. We are therefore looking for volunteers to assist with the following:
If you can help in ANY way then please contact Robbie Watt via email firstname.lastname@example.org
This year’s prize giving ceremony will take place in the bar on Saturday 23rd July after the inaugural Men’s Over 45’s singles final has been played. More details about this event will be sent out soon.
Thank you in advance,
Your Purley Bury Management Tean
