November is packed full of both social and official events at the club.
Davis Cup Weekend – 27th – 29th November
The Davis Cup Final kicks off this weekend with the first two singles rubbers being played on Friday from 1pm. Andy may have had a short stay at the o2 last week, but that just means he’s had more time to prepare for this weekend (we hope!).
Christmas Party – Saturday 5th December
Britain is competing in its first final since 1978, and is seeking its first win since 1936!
The tennis will be available on the TVs at the club all weekend, and on Saturday we are holding our own social tournament so that we can give our all on court before moving inside and seeing what we should be doing when the Murray Brothers (presumably) play what will probably be the decisive rubber in the doubles.
The tournament starts at 11am and runs until 1.30pm, giving us time to settle in for the main event which starts at 2pm. Westside's very own Colin Beecher will be on the coaching staff for the British team, so look out for him and other Westsiders who will be in Ghent supporting the team.
To help you recover and enjoy, we will be putting on an extended menu from the tea bar (on both Saturday and Sunday), with pasta and Belgian waffles on offer and some Belgian beers to wash it all down.
Everyone is welcome to get involved in the tournament, and if you just want to come to watch the Davis Cup then please feel free. Cost for the Tournament is just £3 which covers balls and (small) prizes. Each player will also get a certificate for taking part in the LTA’s big weekend of Davis Cup Tennis!
Sign up sheets are on the bar so please get your name down quickly as there are limited spaces.
To round off the social year at Westside we are hosting our ever popular Christmas Party on Saturday 5th December.
We will be having a 3 course meal followed by a disco, all hosted at the club and with many familiar faces in the kitchen, behind the bar, and even waiting on your every need!
Spaces are limited to 60 so make sure you sign up and pay at the bar as soon as possible.
If for some reason you don’t want to come along for dinner, we will be accepting some disco only guests, however the food will no doubt be amazing so definitely not something to be missed!
Sign-up sheets for all the events are either already available at the bar or will be there shortly. Please take a look and make sure you get your name down for the last 3 events of the year.
