Social Tennis Poker Night

Tuesday 11 Dec 2018 - 7.00 pm

This Tuesday is the monthly Social American Tennis Tournament. It runs from 7pm   through to 8-45 when we retire to the club house for a drink and chat. It is all organised for you. Rob sorts out the pairs and we change round every 25-30 minutes into different pairings so people get to play with lots of people. This month’s theme is Poker night! Don’t worry you don’t have to know how to play or don’t know lots of members….it is all sorted out! You get two cards at the start and then after each round the winners get a further two cards, losers a card. At the end we go into the clubhouse and work out your best 5 cards. Highest scoring hand wins! This week’s prize is a rather nice bottle of red (you can have a tin of balls instead)- although I chose the red, so I know which one I would prefer!

The cost is £3 which covers the cost of new balls, floodlights, an organised tennis evening, snacks (this month minced pies and mulled wine) a free drink from the bar and a prize……and a great evening’s entertainment. What’s there not to like!

These social American tournaments have been really well attended throughout the year and I plan to carry them on through the winter. So if you have not been down to one, why not give it a try! It is a really good blend of abilities from fairly recent starters to very experienced players and everyone in-between. No-one takes it too seriously so it is a really good laugh.

Hope to see you Tuesday,

Ps as homework, poker scoring sheet attached!

Pps Usually it is held the first Tuesday of the month with a different theme each month, we have had scrabble/Lucky Dip/Poker/Risk/Cluedo…
