After two years of being split between Bilton and Ashlawn halls, dealing with the problems of white walls and slippery floors, the committee have finally secured a permanent, high quality home venue for the club!
Rugby High School on Longrood Road have completed the build of their new sports hall. Steve, Pete and Rosemary visited the venue on Wednesday 25th January for a tour. The sports hall has been designed with green interior walls and a blue rubber type floor which we believe will suit the club perfectly, loads of free space around the courts and lighting between the courts. The school are also providing lockable storage for private hirers. The facility has brand new changing/shower facilities and we would also have use of the classroom in the venue for any meetings.
An emergency committee meeting was held on Thursday 26th January, attended by Pete Pugh, Rosemary Pugh, Steve Turner, Simon Piercy, Mark Taylor and Martin Toms. It was decided with the high interest in the venue from other hirers we should go ahead and book the venue.
Therefore, following the Easter school holidays we will be moving the club’s permanent venue to Rugby High School. Throughout the summer we will be running club nights from 7.00 – 9.30 on a Thursday night.
From September we will be moving both Tuesday and Thursday sessions to Rugby High School. The Tuesday match session will run from 7.30 – 10.00 and the normal Thursday club night will run from 7.00 – 9.30.
Exact dates will be confirmed with details of subs to be paid for the summer sessions in due course.
If any members have queries regarding the move please contact either Rosemary or Steve who will answer any questions.
