FREE FOR ALL MEMBERS AND GUESTS
Some good news to share!
The Sports Club has achieved "5 out of 5" in the last 3 food hygiene inspections. This moves us into “Elite Status” so soon those green stickers will be replaced by purple!
The inspection covers the whole Clubhouse and our team, apart from the kitchen which is the responsibility of the caterer. The last score there was 4.
I’ve passed on thanks to all our Clubhouse team for a job well done.

The AED (defibrillator) has arrived, has been registered with the Ambulance Service and is ready to go in an alarmed steel cabinet.
Hopefully we will never get to use it. The machine is exceptionally straightforward to use as it has a colour screen and talks you through what you need to do in the event of finding a person who is unconscious & not-breathing.
No specific training is required for this machine but we will be organising a general first aid training day soon which will cover use of a defibrillator.In the meantime, you can download an app to familiarise yourself with how the machine works - use the following links on your device or search for Lifeline View AED in your app store:
Thank you to everyone who got involved to make this happen!
Look out for further updates.
CASH / CREDIT ON MEMBERSHIP CARDS
Following a successful 6 month trial, we are pleased to announce that with effect from Monday 9 January, we will be offering all Members the option of transferring cash to their Membership Card for hassle-free purchases over the bar. You can also top-up via debit or credit card if that’s preferable - any deposit you make will give you a receipt by way of confirmation. You can also request a report of transactions that you have made by visiting the bar during opening hours.
We are setting the initial top-up limit to £150. We can cancel any Member cards that are lost or stolen within seconds of it being reported and the credit balance and accrued loyalty points will automatically be transferred to the new card issued by one of the managers on duty. Any cash top-ups need to be in note form and in round amounts of £10.
The Members who agreed to participate in the trial are very satisfied with the security and accuracy of the facility and we believe that this will prove popular for a number of you who prefer to budget differently and deal in cash. Transaction recording is completely secure and we have safeguards in place to protect and reassure you so you can rest assured that it’s only you that’s spending your money!
This is a practice that’s very common at other Clubs and is an enhancement to our Member offering - a benefit of being part of the Club, whether it be via a playing or social subscription. We will return to cash ‘proper’ as a means of payment in due course but we are facing logistical issues with our bank; we anticipate that these will be resolved fairly soon.
Please see any Manager on duty if you have any questions or concerns.
ACCEPTING CASH :: UPDATE
Our Bank, Barclays, have requested some lengthy documentation which is taking longer than expected to collate.
Once we have completed this to their satisfaction, we can apply for an arrangement with, hopefully, the Post Office in Upper Mulgrave Road to get things moving.
From memory, there used to be 5 banks in Cheam - now there are none - so this is a further logistical issue we've had to factor in.We will of course update you and we thank you for your ongoing patience and loyalty.
Our most expensive pint is still only £4.30........!
We are open seven days a week and we're hosting more events than before.
Our Members prices are cheaper than pubs - we have a great Bar Team looking after you and at the weekends, we serve tea & coffees from 9am.
Thank you for all your valued support - it does make a huge difference.
