The Club has a distinguished past and a very exciting future.  It has been transformed to meet the demands of the 21st Century while maintaining that essential feel of a traditional Club.  During covid-19 lockdown the Club took the initiative to embark on a major redevelopment of its facilities including the construction of disabled toilets and wheelchair access to the Clubhouse. 

The Clubhouse interior has been completely stripped, two partition walls removed, a new door installed to a storage area, recarpeted and new furniture - tables and chairs - purchased to create a spacious but more efficient layout seating 56 people or more comfortably - 4 tables of 8 and 4 tables of 6. 

The facilities will shortly have wifi, blutooth speaker and flat screen installations.

We have also resourced a high quality marquee which can be pitched throughout the summer season.  This is to ensure we can maintain as much social distancing as members are comfortable with and may be required by the government at any time. We are also completely refurbishing the changing rooms and installing modern led lighting.  They will make ideal small meeting rooms. 

All these facilities will be made available to the community at very fair rents.

All this has been funded through the Club's own resources including significant gifts from members, generous grants from Sport England made available through the pandemic and Section106 funding from Mendip District Council.  Full details are posted in the Communications/Financial tab.
