Introduction

We hope you have all been enjoying the recent good weather and taking the chance to get out onto the golf course and the grass tennis courts. We have had some exciting guests over the last few weeks including: Maria Sharapova and the Russia Olympic Tennis Team, Novak Djokovic, Sergio Garcia, One Direction, JLS and Olly Murs.

This month we will be refurbishing the Ladies’ changing rooms in the Pavilion, with work taking place from Monday 30th July until Thursday 16th August inclusive. The locker area will remain open but the family changing room, steam room and all the showers will be unavailable. We will provide two treatment rooms for use as shower rooms but these will get very busy. Please allow extra time or make alternative arrangements where possible. We do apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and hope that final result will justify the disruption.

Finally, whether you have tickets or will be watching on television, we hope you will join us in wishing Team GB the best of luck for the Olympics and Paralympics.
