Annual Club Tournament

Annual Club Tournament 2020

We will be holding the 2020 finals day earlier this year - Sunday 21st June.


The tournament will be running from the beginning of April to give everyone time to play the initial rounds and hopefully encourage as many players as possible to enter.


The social doubles event is a fun, friendly-competitive (if there is such a thing!) tournament which will be handicapped to even things up and is open to all non-team adult members of the club. The club coaches will be separately organising a tournament for the juniors.

Volunteers Needed

WE NEED YOUR HELP!........

Those that attended the AGM of the Queensgate Sports Club (QSC) will know that it was agreed that the QSC should be working towards being financially self-sufficient so that any spare funds the Tennis, Bowls and Snooker sections have can be plowed back into, in our case, the sinking fund for replacement courts. To enable this, we need to increase the lettings income.  Mike Sarginson has already volunteered to take on the initial enquires, actual bookings and maintenance of an online calendar (which is fabulous news!) until someone else comes forward as this is a job that needs doing immediately if we are to advertise the clubhouse to potential hirers! If anyone feels they could take this job on, please let us know by emailing or phoning the number below.

Rob Chambers and Mike Sarginson already look after the bar stock and Bob Pigeon will be dealing with the financial arrangements for the lettings. 

We are also looking for several people to volunteer on a rota system to fulfil the following jobs:
1)  volunteers to unlock the clubhouse and possibly set up the main hall with tables (if required) when events are taking place
2)  volunteers to put any tables away the following morning that have been used at the event together with doing a check for damage.
3)  volunteers to run the bar for evening events. This is a paid role and would suit anyone over the age of 18. 

If you think you could be available to help by giving up some time, on a rota basis, please email Bob Pigeon - bobpigeon@btinternet.com -07843 573975 

Don't forget you can also help by making your friends, family, colleagues aware of the venue, whether it's for a special birthday, children's party, works do, bridge drive, or classes of any kind.  And ...if you hire it yourself, members get a very good discount @ £15 per hour!  Non-members £25 per hour
