Halloween Bowling

Dear all,

It’s time for our first social of the season. Based on the recent poll and people’s availability we have planned this first social to be on this Friday, the 26th October from 8pm at newly renovated Wokingham Super Bowl (Wellington Rd, RG40 2NJ, Wokingham).

We are planning on booking 2 games of bowling and there is an option to have a special offer which is including (fast) food dinner. We’ll keep you updated with the prices in the coming week so that you can pay the final amount on the day itself.

We have created “event” on our RAVC Facebook group Please ‘reply or like’ to this event if you are planning on coming or drop a line to Eline if you don’t have Facebook. We are planning to book only 1 lane but if you have not responded to the message and would like to join, please let us know ASAP. Everybody is welcome, family, friends, kids!

Hope to see as many of you on Friday 🎃!

Our annual “End of Season” tournament and BBQ to be held on the 10th of June from 1pm at IBIS Leisure club has been cancelled due to low interest.


After the success of last year’s event we will again be running an end of season volleyball and BBQ event.


The date for this is Saturday 13th June from 1pm. It will be held at the IBIS club in Reading (RG30 6AY), where we will have outdoor nets for volleyball during the afternoon, followed by a BBQ at around 6pm.

The event is relaxed, so come when you can and everybody is welcome – players, non-players, families, children, anyone you like to invite who used to play for us…

The format of the afternoon will be casual games with mixed ability teams, picnic lunch and then the BBQ. There will be a charge of £10 (play and BBQ)/£8 (BBQ) per adult and £6 (play and BBQ)/£4 (BBQ) for those 14 and under. There will be plenty of space for everyone, whether playing volleyball or any other game you want to bring along!!

Please let Claire Stent ( know if you can come! We need to have numbers for the BBQ by 8th June at the latest. Please also advise of any dietary requirements.

Indoor season start celebrations
To celebrate the transition from outdoor to indoor we’ll be hosting a picnic at Dinton Pastures on Sunday 5th September 2010 at 1pm. I’m still checking as to whether we can do BBQs there (I think we can, from memory) but if you want to come, meet in the main car park (off Davis Street near the Sainsbury’s at Winnersh) and then we can find somewhere handy to pitch camp.

See you there!!

Payments will be collected by Karen by Tuesday 1st December 2009.

Please can you confirm your attendance as soon as possible via email to Luciano.

We look forward to a great evening together!
