Annual tennis week at Okehampton

Every year Fishbourne Tennis Club sends a number of members to an annual tennis week at the Manor House Hotel in Okehampton, Devon. This year we are hoping to send a larger contingent to increase the amount of court time that we are able to have. Please see the following reminder notice from Janet Leonard who co-ordinates the course bookings on behalf of the local clubs that take part:

Hello Okehamptoners past, present and future

Now that its March, its time to start planning holidays for the year.  I have reserved a selection of accommodation at the Manor House Hotel again this year for 27 Septembver to 2 October, and some of you have already reserved your rooms.  I have to confirm the booking and send the deposit by mid-March LATEST so please now let me know if you would like to join us this year.

Last year we had the largest party we have had so far at the Manor House Hotel, with tennis players, badminton players, golfers and art-and-crafters, plus quite a few folks using the excellent bowls facilities and enjoying guided walks on the moor.  The golf courses are superb and range from comfortable to wickedly steep!  Golf carts advised.  The new spa is a real treat and the food continues to be as plentiful as ever.  Altogether this hotel and its huge selection of activities continues to be amazing value for money, with rates held this year yet again.  The basic price for the 5 night stay is £334 but we do attract a discount depending on numbers.  We will get at least 10% discount.

The room rates are:

Single                                          £334 plus 10% supplement

Double-for-single occupancy      £334 plus 25% supplement

Twin                                            £334

Double                                        £334

All rates are PER PERSON.  Don’t forget that if you have to cancel for any reason, provided you give 8 weeks’ written notice, your deposit is refunded in full.  Even with 4 weeks’ notice you get a refund of 50%.

If you would like to join us, please let me know as soon as you have made a decision.  I will need a deposit of £80 PER PERSON by 2nd week of March LATEST.  If you do internet banking, my account number is 84206671 sort code 09 01 27.  Please put your name as the reference so I know who the money is from.  Cheques made out to Mrs J Leonard can be sent to me at 64 Ferndale Road, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 6QJ.  Cash to me in person only please.   The hotel only deal with me as the booker, so all deposit money is payable by me.  Any queries, please contact me by email or phone on 01243 697391 or text on 07961 803773.  If you know of anyone else who might like to join us, just give them my number.
