Return of Club Nights
We move a step closer to normality with doubles matches allowed from Monday 10th with club nights expected to commence quite soon. The clubhouse should only be opened for two reasons, to turn on the floodlights and to use the toilet facilities, members should bring their own supply of drinking water.
All members are reminded that membership fees are due from June 1st and members have three weeks thereafter to pay before their fobs will be deactivated. New potential members can now join our friendly club also. Please visit our website, athlonetennisclub.com, for further information. Fees can, preferably, be paid on line.
