The Hungerford Club has decided to purchase and install a potentially life-saving defibrillator to be mounted on the outside wall of the Club house, near the front door.

It will be mounted on the outside wall of the clubhouse within a locked/coded cabinet and available for anyone to use 24 hours a day

Whilst it is being provided for club members, it is available to anyone in the Croft who needs it.

The cabinet code can be obtained by dialling 999. The unit is fully automatic and has full instructions. It is available for all ages with paediatric pads included.

All members invited to the tennis open day.

The Tennis Section of the Hungerford Club is excited to be holding a members day on Saturday 29th May (the Bank Holiday Weekend). Although it is being organised by the Tennis Section, it is very informal and all Hungerford Club members who would like to take part are welcome.

Lockdown restrictions were eased from 17th May, however by law we will still be restricted to the ‘Rule of 30’ for post-play social/catering (the ‘Rule of 30’ will also apply to group tennis play from the 17th).
The day will therefore take the form of two separate Club Play slots from 10am-1pm (Club Play finishing from around 12pm, with food and drink available at the Hungerford Club from around 12pm), and 4pm-7pm (food and drink from 6pm). 
Tennis and post tennis numbers will need to be managed carefully so that we can remain within the tennis and social gathering limits.

If you would like to participate on the day:

The Tennis Section will then contact you nearer the time with further information.

Indoor Sports – Renew membership 2021

The Civid-9 pandemic has affected many organisations and The Hungerford Club has not been immune. The various lock downs have closed all the sports activities for much of the year past and for the Indoor Sports section this has meant no access to the club building and bar.

The Tennis section uses the LTA Clubspark site to administer membership. The Bowls section has a membership secretary who handles their renewals by emails and the post. Members of these sections may, therefore, renew their membership without visiting the club.

In the past the Indoor Sports section have had to visit the club to collect a renewal form from the club bar. Once completed members would hand the form to the bar staff and pay the subscription whereupon a receipt would be issued. Please be assured, members may still do this when the bar is open.

We are aware there may be Indoor Sports members who would like to renew their membership without having to visit the bar.

Please follow these steps to renew your Indoor Sports (social) membership without having to visit the bar.

  • Download the renewal form by clicking the “Download” button above. Save the file rather than opening in your browser.
  • The form should be saved to your Downloads folder. Locate it and open the form in a PDF viewer (Adobe Acrobat on Windows, Preview on Apple Macs).
  • Complete the form and save it. Do not open in a browser – you may not be able to save your completed form.
  • Use a bank transfer (details on the form) to pay the subscription. Please use your name as the payment reference. Click here for details of the subscriptions.
  • Finally, please send an email to hungerfordclub@icloud.com and attach the completed form. Please include in your email the date of the bank transfer.

Getting ready!

The recent spell of pleasant weather provided an opportunity for both the Bowls and Tennis sections to prepare for the restrictions on outdoor sports to be lifted.

The bowls section have treated the green with both a fertiliser and moss treatment. The latter has given the green a rather dark look but that is to be expected.

Bowling grren looking a little dark after moss treatment.
Bowling green looking good after moss treatment.

Meanwhile the tennis section have been cleaning the courts. Again, moss is the problem. To really clean the court surface a powerful jet washer was hired. This has a rotating head with multiple jets. The machine is slowly pushed over the courts, cleaning a stripe on each pass. Really stubborn parts can be give an extra clean using the lance which is also used to jet the resulting dirt to the edges of the courts.
