Introduction

Welcome to March.

 

So were you one of 3.6 million viewers of BBC 1's 'Saturday Kitchen', which featured our Executive Chef, Chris Wheeler? Chris did a fantastic job and we are all proud of his performance!
 
Our winter projects are progressing well. The foundations of the new Half-way House are in, the old astro tennis courts have been removed (ready for the new artificial clay surface) and the new tennis court floodlighting poles are in. All these projects will be finished by the end of March.
 
We are pleased to confirm that there will not be any increase in the Membership Subscriptions for the 2014 – 2015 Membership year (which starts 1st July).
 
Tickets are selling well for our Summer Events: The Boodles, Sir Elton John Concert and Katherine Jenkins’ Birthday Concert. If you would like to purchase any for The Boodles, please visit www.theboodles.com and for our concerts please visit www.stokepark.com/concerts

Wimbledon Ballot Info & Date

This years Wimbledon Ballot will be held at 19:30 on Wednesday 30th April in the Fountain Room in the Mansion. The format will be the same as previous years with strawberries and cream available at 19:00 and the draw starting promptly at 19:30. Due to LTA rules however the distribution of tickets will be different this year.
 
Only BTM members who have Stoke Park as their registered club will be eligible to win tickets in our ballot
 
Children under the age of 8 are not eligible to win tickets.
Any member who wins the right to purchase tickets will then be contacted by the LTA and will need to purchase the tickets directly from them
 
If the contact details held by the LTA are not correct, they will not be able to contact you so you will not be able to purchase the tickets.
 
Members will have 14 days from the 30th April to purchase their tickets before they loose the right to them. 
 
We will display a list of the tickets that we have been allocated after the 3rd March. From this point you will be able to register your desire to enter the draw at reception. Everyone who registers will be entered in to the draw and any one who attends on the evening will be given a second entry. As normal however, each member will only be awarded one pair of tickets so will need to be present at the time their name is pulled out for the second time to be able to decide which pair of tickets they would like to purchase.  
 
Between now and 3rd March, we strongly recommend that you log in to your BTM account to ensure that your contact details are correct and Stoke Park is your registered club. 

Court Refurbishment Update

The refurbishment of the outdoor courts is now well under way. The contractors have begun removing the old artificial grass and will then make good the surface underneath. Additional drainage will be installed if necessary and the poles erected for the floodlights between the courts. A week of good weather is then needed for the laying of the new surface. We are still hopeful that this will be completed well before the end of March. The final part of the process is installing the floodlight poles around the edge of the courts. As they are not within the playing area, we intend to do this whilst the courts are operational.  We will keep you up to date with progress but hope you will all be using the new courts before April.

Stoke Park Championship 2014 

Please find below an entry form for the 2014 Championship. Completed forms along with the appropriate entry fee should be returned to Spa Reception before 9th March.

The draw will then be completed on the 10th March and e mailed to all entrants.

Junior Non Member Programme 

April will see the launch of the Junior Non Member Programme on the newly refurbished artificial clay courts. This will be an opportunity for local children to try out tennis for the first time under the guidance of the Stoke Park professionals. This will be weekday evenings between 15:30 and 17:30 on two courts only meaning that member use of facilities will not be affected in any way.
 
Children on this programme will not have access to the indoor courts or San Marco restaurant. A new cabin is being created for them that will contain a waiting area for them and their parents and a toilet so they will not need to access the indoor areas at any time. 
 
If you have family or friends who would like to take part, please e mail tennis@stokepark.com for further details.

Cancelling Courts

As there is so much extra pressure on court time at the moment, please cancel any time that you have booked that you no longer need. We would also ask that if you have outstanding box league matches, please do not reserve a court for two hours unless you are going to play for the entire duration.

We see many new offerings from the top brands over the season however the golf team at Stoke Park have all agreed that this is possibly the most stylish and aesthetically pleasing of them all. The i25 driver and fairway both feature adjustable technology whilst the rescue's compressed profile and shorter heel-toe length improve turf interaction. The new model of iron is cosmetically much cleaner and feel slightly softer due to a softer insert. Check out ping.com for more details.
