What we're about
We are a small friendly group with events in Sunningdale, Ascot and nearby areas. Our main sports & recreation activities are golf, card games and table tennis. Various other activities or sports are also organised as well - see below for details. Women and men of any age are welcome at all of our events.
In a bit more detail our activities are:
• Golf most weekends (in Sunningdale, Ascot and at six or seven other nearby courses) - usually over 18 holes (but sometimes over 9). Events organised at Courses# to suit experienced and/or novice players. Cost usually £18 to £30 max (less for 9 holes). The area has some attractive and quite challenging golf courses.
• Card games evenings - play or learn a variety of traditional card games (every 3 or 4 weeks). Games played include whist, rummy, black maria, switch, poker and bridge*. Some experience of card games useful, but no experience of the particular card games played required. *Separate bridge or traditional board games evenings will also be organised if there is sufficient interest.
• Table tennis (about every 3 weeks) at Sunningdale leisure centre on Tuesdays. All standards welcome.
• Other sports or activities - occasional cycle rides, petanque, visits to see local plays, snooker, watching sport live, etc. Team sports are not organised.
A few events each year are joint with another group to boost numbers.
There are a roughly equal number of men and women in the group, and members are of various ages (although the most active at the moment are probably aged 40+).
We hope to see you soon!
