Introduction

 

We hope you had a fantastic March and enjoyed some of the sunshine?
 
As always, this newsletter has details of upcoming news and exciting information for members.
 
We hope you're aware in 2013 Stoke Park received 21 awards and accolades (our record year) and we are pleased that 2014 has started where 2013 left off. So far we have received a Gold Flag award from Club 59, a golf analysis business that measures service at leading golf venues and have just been nominated for Buckinghamshire Business First category for Leisure Tourism of the year – the awards evening for this is in May. 
 
Please note that we will be installing new kerbing and improving the road surface drainage from the main Park Road entrance to the start of the golf course during April. We will also be re-tarmacing this section of the entrance drive after the kerbing works have been completed. The East drive entrance will be used for access for the two days the tarmac is being installed - more details to follow. We thank you in advance for your patience whilst these improvements are being made.
 
We hope you and your family have a lovely Easter.

Life Coach Neelam Challoner writes... 

 

What is it that makes one wake up in the morning and do what they do, and do it with passion and with a sense of meaning and purpose? Do you have a job or role which fulfils your inner satisfaction or do you live a life where each day you just cannot wait till the weekend or your next holiday.

Tennis News
Championship
 
The full championship draws can now be found here.
 
Please note that the closing date for the first round is 27th April so please start arranging those matches as extensions cannot be made.
All Weather Courts
 
I am delighted to say that the refurbishment of the all weather courts is now completed and they are playing beautifully. They will take a couple of months to bed in fully during which time we will be continually adding more sand to get them to optimum level.
 
In order to get the best results out of the courts, please use the dragnets and line cleaners before you play. There is no need to do this when you have finished as they next people to use the court will do it before they begin playing.
 
The floodlights are also working on two courts so play is possible until 22:00 weekdays and 20:00 at weekends. The two remaining courts will be completed as soon possible but due to the energy consumption of the lights, we need to run an additional cable to supply the power! If you have booked an outdoor court and need the floodlights, please obtain a token from reception before you begin playing.  
Junior Roll Up
 
Due to the success of the Junior Roll Up on a Friday evening we are having to change the format slightly. Children from the age of six may now attend (or even from the age of five after prior consultation with a member of the coaching team). Children under the age of seven however should be attending for a maximum of an hour whereas older children can remain for the full hour and a half. This is purely so that we can offer the children the chance to play competitive matches and we are finding the energy and attention of the younger children is starting to wane after an hour. 
 
All children who attend this session need to have an official British Tennis Membership number but the coaching team can assist with this on the evening and it does not cost a penny!
Winning Juniors
 
Dimitre Alexanders and Jake Skeat both took home gold at the recent Gerrards Cross tournament with Jake being victorious in the 8 and under and Dimitre in the 9 and under. Adam Currie their individual coach said 'Both boys are long standing members of Stoke Park and have both upped there training recently so it's great to see the hard work paying off!
Ball Machine
 
The ball machine has been away for a complete refurb and is now back on site in full working order. It can be hired for £5 an hour with a basket of balls.
Tennis Camp
 
In addition to the golf and tennis camps over Easter, we are also running a tennis only camp on Monday 7th April. This will be from 10:00 until 15:00 and will include lunch. Price per child is £65 with numbers limited to 16 children. Please contact dcoe@stokepark.com or one of the tennis coaches for more details.
