NEWSLETTER - CORRECTION (Week of 08 July 2019)

Greetings Graftonites: 

The quiz masters tell us *there isn't a quiz this week*. It will happen next week instead- apologies. But hopefully it gives everyone more time to revise.

The rest of the below newsletter, that was broadcast, should be moderately accurate.

Thanks everyone.

Firstly a massive thank you to the Social Committee and all the musicians and volunteers who helped put on another fantastic Summer Party. Photos available on the Chronicle and on Facebook. 

Plenty of items in this week's broadcast for the athletes, intellectuals and socialites amongst us, so do read on: 


***If you wish to put an announcement in next Monday’s broadcast, the only way to do so is by sending your broadcast to by Friday 6pm.*** 


After 3 months of blood, sweat and tantrums, we are fast approaching our Finals Day on Saturday 20th July! The day is a culmination of the summer’s tennis where our top players battle it out one last time for their names to go down in Grafton history...who will triumph in a blaze of glory and who will fall at the final hurdle? 

The day promises to be a fun-filled affair with no less than 16 matches to be played, including 4 junior finals. 

Come down from 11am to enjoy a day of top-notch tennis and to lend your support to your fellow members. There’s also lots of other activities to get involved in including social tennis, see how you fare against our new coach and ex-tennis pro Alex War, test your serve in the speed gun competition, and enjoy some seasonal cocktails at our new pop up bar on Murray’s Mound. 

But (almost) as important as the day’s tennis, the Grafton Bake Off is back! Bake your masterpiece, and enter it into the competition for a chance of winning a very special prize. Needless to say, all of the delectable entries will be available to buy on the day for anyone needing a sugar boost! 

Hope to see as many of you there as possible, and if you’re able to assist us on the day help is needed on the BBQ, on The Chronicle, judging the Bake-Off, behind the bar, running the speed gun competition etc. If you’re happy to volunteer, please email!
