Hi All,

 

I hope that you have all been well and are looking forward to the upcoming Easter Break(Don’t forget to start booking your courts for any days you may have off work!).

 

Firstly I wanted to give you an insight in to what Rob, Claire & I are looking to do on our upcoming Padel & Real Tennis Open Day which is being held from 10.30am-2pm on Sunday 5th May.

 

The day is aimed at new people who would like to give them games a try and see what they are all about. They can come to the session for FREE and will benefit from some coaching and then go on to play matches against other beginners. Rob, Claire & I will be on hand to answer any questions they may have about membership, how it all works and what we can do next for them if they would like to continue playing.

 

I am sure that you must all have at least a few friends or family that might want to give the sports a go and at least see what all the fuss is about?! This is the time to do it where they can come for free! You are of course welcome to accompany them and see how they get on and join in with them(numbers permitting). They are able to just turn up on the day if easier, although if you have people in mind who are keen, then they can register their interest by contacting me on 07432 841298 or via email on padel@prested.net

I have been asked to extend to you that the club is running an offer for “Padel Only” membership, which if taken out before 30th April is at a price of £15 per month (as opposed to £23 per month full tennis membership). For those of you who are new players to the club(and have surely now realised that Padel is the best sport ever!) it could be an offer worth taking.

 

If you have any queries about membership or would like to make the most of this offer then please contact Gavin on memberships@prested.com

 

*Please also note that as per club rules, non-members coming to play Padel are to pay a £5 guest fee at reception*

Hi All,

 

I trust that everyone is well and has been enjoying a Padel filled week so far! Please see some information below about upcoming matches and National Club Championships.

 

************************

 

National Club Championships

Firstly, please see details below about the Redwood Bank National Club Championships which we have been given the opportunity to play in by British Padel. I am told that there has been huge interest nationwide, and the format of the competition has been defined as Regional Qualifications round, to be held on the 11th of May and the National Finals which are planned for the 21st and 22nd of September, for which two teams out of every Regional Playoff will qualify for the finals.

The top 6-8 players to register with Lewis will make the Prested Padel Club team, which will play on the 11th of May, at David Lloyd Bushey club. The day will consist of 4 team encounters (Round Robin format of 5 teams). Each encounter will consist of your best 3 pairs, playing against the best 3 pairs of every other team. The Padel is completely free of charge as the cost is taken on by the club.

This could be a fantastic way to meet and play against new pairs and to take your game to the next level. Please let me know ASAP if you can make this date and would like to be part of the team.
