Nail Bar 

We are excited to announce in September the launch of our brand new Gel Nail Range, Artistic Gloss. 

Artistic Nail Design's Colour Gloss Soak Off Gel System is a revolutionary gel system which has had a dramatic improvement on the traditional manicure - lasting up to three times longer, without chipping or peeling. When a change is required the colour can be quickly soaked off without any damage to the original nail. 

Nails are dry virtually instantly, as they are lamp-cured under a 45-watt LED light, for a glossy long lasting result. 

We will be running a special launch event on 2nd October with the Artistic team experts and fantastic special offers for you to try the new Artistic Gels. More information will follow at spa reception and on the notice boards.

Save The Date

Friday 4th October  

The Annual Tennis Dinner will be held on Friday 4th October. Format will be welcome drinks, dinner and entertainment in the form of a computerised race night, with prizes for those who win the most chips at the end of the night.

Grass Court Restoration 

After such a fantastic summer our grass courts have definately had the most usage of their 14 year life, they now need some much deserved TLC!

We have consulted with Wimbledon, who have arranged for all the grass courts to be all fraise mowed, re-levelled and re-seeded using a specialist Koro machine. To make sure we get the right growth before the winter months, we have taken the grass courts out of action a few weeks earlier than normal. 

We have never used a Koro machine before, but have been assured that it will make them an incredible playing surface for next year. 

PlaySight 

We are pleased to announce that we have just installed a 'Smart Court System' by PlaySight. This is the latest technology in tennis, featuring the most advance line calling, training analysis and debreifing capabilities in the world. In fact it is so state of the art that only one other tennis club in Europe has this system!

Training or playing on a Smart Court is more focused, effective and enables rapid improvement from the very first session. The Smart Court is set up on our indoor court number 3 and is available to Tennis and Health Members.

We are pleased to offer all Tennis and Health Members their first PlaySight session free of charge (valid till the 30th September). Please contact the Spa Reception to make your PlaySight court reservation.

The price after the free session will be £12 per hour (irrespective if you are playing doubles or singles) or an additional £10 per hour when incorporated into your lesson with a Stoke Park Tennis Pro. 

How to get started? 

  • Registration for Tennis and Health Members is free, simple and fast at www.playsight.com
  • After registering, call Spa Reception on 01753 717173 and ask to book the Smart Court, indoor court number 3
  • Please note, you will not be able to play on the Smart Court without prior online registration, so please be sure to register before arrival. 

As this will be able to give us some incredible stats, we will be introducing some fun competitions like; Fastest Serve of the month (by age and gender). More details will be emailed out in September.

Pro Shop 2013 Autumn/Winter Collections Now In

TaylorMade SLDR Driver Ready For Launching

More Loft, More Distance, Crazy but true! The new TaylorMade SLDR driver is built to help you hit longer / straighter drives by promoting a high launch angle, lower spin-rate and faster ball speed. That's what makes SLDR TaylorMade's longest driver ever.

SLDR's CG location is both low and forward, due in large part to the large 20-gram sliding weight on the sole. That promotes a dramatic leap in distance. In addition to these benefits, the SLDR weight also represents a complete reinvention of movable weight, making it more effective and easier to use. Movable weight shifts the club head's CG horizontally toward either the heel, to promote a draw, or towards the toe, to promote a fade. SLDR's sliding weight allows you to shift the CG far enough to promote a side-to-side trajectory change of up to 30 yards.

Visit the Pro Shop now and demo this spectacular distance machine and see how many yards you can add to your drives!

As a result of their increased success in the golf industry PING is now one of the biggest selling brands in drivers, woods, utilities and putters in the UK.
