In Memoriam

Given the impact the club has felt over the last year or two, the Committee have drawn up an ‘In Memoriam’ document that will be updated as and when we lose valuable members of the club.

Club closure – Tier 3

Following the Government’s announcement today that Wiltshire will be Tier 3 with effect from 31 December 2020, the Committee has taken the decision to close the club from 31 December until restrictions are eased.

Sad news – Dennis Shipp

It is with deep regret and sadness that the Club has to announce the passing of Dennis Shipp on 15 December. He passed away peacefully at his home.

Dennis was a stalwart member of the Club and actively participated in national and domestic competitions and leagues. Dennis won a large number of domestic competitions during his playing career at the club, including winning the Over 60s Two Wood Singles every year since it was introduced.

The funeral will be held at Salisbury Crematorium on 30 December at 11am. Due to Covid Tier 2 restrictions numbers will be limited.

Singles slots available

Further to the Chairperson’s e-mail last week please note that the Club is now open for Singles Play only at certain times.

Please check out the rink booking calendar for available times.

Continued club closure post lockdown

Following the Government’s announcement that Wiltshire will be Tier 2 when lockdown ends in the UK on 2 December, the club will continue to remain closed for the forseeable future.

Unfortunately the costs of running and operating the club will outweigh any potential income from individual or same household bookings. Therefore to ensure the continued financial prosperity of the club there is no alternative other than to remain closed at this time.
