Dear fellow Members,
It is a real pleasure for me to write this on a sunny day knowing that many of us are enjoying the club’s outdoor facilities and have just started to use the Gym, Indoor Pool and Indoor Tennis Centre where restrictions permit. I know there are still some other parts of the Club yet to open but we have a timetable to work to – so roll on 21st June!
The Board and I are delighted with the warm reception and support shown by Members for our decision to award a club credit as a thank you to Members for their patience while the Club has been closed. I believe some have already spent their credit in full on tuition, others are booking evening meals with friends on the new heated bar terrace and some just prefer a daily cappuccino.
Either way we are pleased at the very good spirits Members are in as they are getting back in the swing of things at our prestigious Club.
I say prestigious because it was in April 1902 that the first polo and croquet balls were hit on our lawns after the Club was founded 120 years go in November 1901. Click here to see the 1901 minutes
Roehampton Club has evolved over that time to become the King of Sports Clubs offering such a wide range of sports and activities. With the introduction of padel tennis in May we are further adding to our enviable reputation and we hope that the Miller family would be as proud of the Club now as when they formed it 120 years ago.
