General Pool Sessions: Membership Survey Results

The results of the survey regarding use of the General Pool Sessions can be found here in pdf format.

As recently communicated in the Club E-Alert, the Committee has ratified the proposals on the final page, and the Thursday late General Pool Session will close, with Thursday 9 May 2013 being the last General Pool Session held.  The Wednesday session will continue to be held, with charges reduced to £6/- members and £8/- non-members on the same date.  All are welcome from Thursday to the Wednesday session.

The committee is currently evaluating what to do with the Thursday night pool booking, and is endeavouring to plan activity that delivers fiscal neutrality.

LONDON INTERNATIONAL POLO 2012

 

 

Meridian fielded 5 teams in the2012 London International Polo competition, with the club organising a warm and sunny weekend. The weekend resulted  in our ‘C’ team closely losing out to Viking  in a thrilling close fought Div.1 final. Our ‘A’ team taking the 3rd. Place. In Div.2 Meridian ‘B’ took the first place honours, with our ‘D’ team coming an unlucky 13th! Division 3 saw our youth team fighting a nail biting battle, just losing out to Cardiff for 2nd. Place in the division 3 final.

Well done to all those that took part and also a big thank you to the organisers and helpers for running such a great weekend.
