A taste of what is to come. Some ambitions are closer than others.

A double net facility has been put on the back burner for a while following the more flexible construction of an artificial track at the centre of new upper field. The new track not only offers all weather play on the upper field but, in conjunction with a new mobile net, a practice facility is also now available.

At some point permanent nets will return to the development agendabut it might be expedient to think about their future location in case more immeddiate development present location difficulties.

The upper field is now well on the way to full development. An artificial track was lain last year and over the winter a leveling of the topology has taken place and a reseeding programme should see the upper field in full operation by the mid-season of 2015.

Parking issues now need to be addressed so that the new facility is not damaged in poorer weather.

A new clubhouse is a longer-term ambition for the club . More recent ideas have moved away from the conception of a two-storey develpment as illustrated above.

The debate now centres on which side of the clubhouse the changing rooms should be built in a one-storey development.

The adjoining field on the south of the club is very much part of the club's overall vision. Owned by Barry Mountford, the club's friend, the field will one day mature into natural English woodland giving a wonderful verdant backcloth to the pavillion as well as offering a haven to local wildlife.

A planting programme is already in progress.
