New additions to website

In an attempt to avoid doing the stuff Jono has asked me to do, I've been working on a new page for the website.

You can access the new page via the 'Live' link at the top of the page and on Saturdays it should be home to some live text commentary on the games being played that day.

Net Facility Planning Application – Success!

Posted 1 July 2013 12:00 by Jono

Finally we have received the green light on the planning permission for our brand new net facility! This means that we can go ahead and build it, which will happen some time this season. The facility will be surrounded by a fence and gated at the front, containing two lanes with state-of-the-art surfaces. This should hopefully allow us to take our training to the next level at both junior and senior level!

20th July – Bollywood Night

Posted 1 July 2013 12:00 by Jono

Get the date in your diary – this is not a night to be missed! RCC”s Patel contingent are organising a Bollywood-themed party, with home-made curries and Bollywood-style entertainment. Rumours of a personal appearance from Shilpa Shetty are as yet unsubstantiated. Rumours that Thwaitesy will be turning out in full traditional Indian dress are fully substantiated.
