We’ve managed to get our next two fixtures confirmed, and there are as follows:
Sunday 25th November – v. Loughborough Away in Sutton Bonington. Court is booked between 15:00 and 18:00 as we will be playing both men’s and women’s fixtures, and it will cost £5 per person to cover court costs and fuel costs (which will go back to the drivers as per the last away match).
Sunday 2nd December – v. Warwick at home on the larger side of the usual hall. Court is booked between 13:00 and 15:00, and this will be a men’s game only. Cost per person will be around £3.70 to cover court costs.
In terms of the women’s fixture, everyone who has been to previous sessions who is available to play on the 25th will play. We are looking to take 9 or 10 players for the match, so depending on whether we pick up any newcomers between now and then we may draft in some of the Warwick beginners who played alongside our girls in the university tournament.
However, for the men’s games, because of limits in terms of squad size (and space in cars for the Loughborough fixture), we will be selecting a squad of 15 for both fixtures. It is our intention that everyone who wants to play and has attended sessions fairly regularly will play in at least one of the games. However, we can only guarantee this if we know everyone’s availability in advance. Therefore if you can only make one of the two fixtures, please let us know at either the Tuesday or Thursday session next week, and we will make sure you are selected for the fixture you can attend. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’re availability that way.
We’re really looking forward to building on the performances of the mini-tournament in Sutton Bonington and also those of the students in the West Midlands development tournament over the next few weeks. Though as always we are still open to new members of any experience level, so if you still haven’t come down to a session, why not pop down on Tuesday or Thursday next week? Coventry Sports Centre, 20:30-21:30, Courts 1-4 as always.
