We have been asked to order some more Club shirts in Ladies style and also we are short of the larger Mens sizes.
Entrance Cards; We are aware that some members Entrance Cards have not been working recently. If your card doesn’t open the door to the Clubhouse please place it in an envelope with your name on it and put it in the ‘Coach’ pigeon hole. It will then be replaced with a new one..
Bar Volunteers: The Club is in need of more volunteers to work behind the bar when necessary. The more members that are trained for this, the less onerous the task becomes for everyone. Please let Trevor or Len know if you are able to take this on. .
Friendlies: We played Canterbury away last Saturday and won on all 5 rinks. The overall winning score was 54/96 to Hythe. On Tuesday we played Helio Mirror at home and once again we won 130/88. Well done everyone who took part.
Men’s: On Monday our Shepway League men’s team played Sellinge away, beating them 7/3. Congratulations guys. Hythe remains 3rd in the League.
Ladies: Unfortunately, the ladies lost overall to Lenham in the third round of the Mollie Cleggett. Well done on making it to the third round ladies. The ladies Shepway League team won all 4 points against Sellinge at home on Wednesday, so are still top of the League. Well done ladies. In the away game at River on Thursday the ladies won on one rink and lost on one.

On Monday, 1 August, the men have a Shepway League game away at Wear Bay, and on Friday, 6 August, they are away to Ashford Rail.
Mixed friendlies for next week are on Sunday, 1 August, at home to Northfleet; Thursday, 5 August, away to Ham Street; Saturday, 7 August, at home to Fobbing.
This still leaves a number of lights that have to be switched manually.
So if you lock up the Clubhouse at anytime, please carry out a walk through to ensure all manually switched lights are off. This is particularly important in the evening when more lights are likely to be switched on.
Please hang wet mats singly, one to each pusher. These are new mats and are already beginning to perish because they are stored wet on top of each other.
