Table Tennis Sunday mornings once or twice a month - watch out for it!

Cost £4.00 each - we will get about one and a half hour's of play, maybe just over, but it's FREE parking.

Payment is to ME on the day.

You will need to bring:

• your own bat. We aren't at the sports centre, there are no bats generally available however, I do have three spares, if you need to borrow one leave a comment on here when you RSVP. Balls provided - covered by the charge made by me.

• Water to stay hydrated.

• Wear trainers

• The right change please. :-)

It's not about being the best, but to enjoy having a game so don't panic if you've never played before or are a beginner. There are one or two that can teach you the basic rules and shots of the game - just ask if you would like this help. The people that have been coming along for over two years now are mixed ability, all ages and good fun. You will be very welcome.

It's about having fun!

The table(s) are booked for 10.30 - 12.30 this has to include set up and putting away time, so please arrive promptly at 10.30am. Coffee and/or lunch afterwards at a nearby venue for those who want to stay on. We have to vacate the school promptly at 12.30pm having already packed away the tables so apologies in advance if I have to cut your game short.

I book and pay in advance. Please make sure that if you RSVP you come so that I am not out of pocket. Thank you.

I will limit numbers to a maximum of four more than tables booked so please be prepared to swap in and out and have some possible non playing time. I will swap people in regularly to minimise this.

Looking forward to it :-)

This is a popular event. Please respect others and change your RSVP to No if you find you cannot attend after all, especially if there are people waiting. Please do not simply not turn up, that prevents others from the opportunity to play and costs me personally. Thank you for your respect.

Bath Table Tennis Christmas Do!
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
1:15pm - 5:30pm


This event is for the table tennis players who come to St. Marks in Bath, to celebrate yet another successful year together of pinging and ponging balls on a Sunday morning!! If you have played fairly often as part of this group during the last year you are invited to join us for Christmas Lunch.

Christmas Jumpers and/or Festive Hats are encouraged!!

We will have the upstairs room exclusively for our use and an indicative menu is shown.

There is a table tennis session in the morning so this is scheduled to continue straight on from that event.

There are no showers at St Mark's so freshening up and changing before lunch is restricted to just sinks in the boys and girls toilets!

Numbers are limited and RSVPS will only be secured on receipt of your £10 deposit paid directly to me. Total Cost is £15.00 per person plus drinks payable yourself directly to the bar. If you RSVP and don't pay your deposit and subsequently there are people on the waiting list with money ready you will be removed so that they have the chance to go in your place.

Deposits of £10/person are non-refundable, if you drop out after the RSVP closing date. I've managed to secure free (to you) car-parking for us just around the corner on the school playground, the cost of this will come from the table tennis kitty.

YOU MUST RSVP TO THE TABLE TENNIS SESSION IN THE MORNING AND THE LUNCH AS TWO SEPARATE EVENTS if you want to do both. One RSVP will not automatically add you to the other event Or visa versa. You can, of course, come to just one of the events.

Pencil To Paint
27th September - 13th December

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This ten week course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Tonal value
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 to 18:00
Wednesdays  27 September; 04, 18 October; 01, 08, 15, 22, 29 November; 06, 13 December 2017
Membership - Bath Business Partnership
12th February - 2nd January

This is not a one off event. Membership is £600 per year and can be payable annually. This includes 4 dinners per year with guest speakers from the political and business world at each dinner.  There will also be an opportunity for each dinner to be sponsored. 
Bath needs small and medium size companies to prosper; they are the backbone of our economy. Bath Business Partnership has been established to promote the interests of businesses within Bath.
We believe it is vitally important that our politicians understand the wide range of issues confronting businesses. I hope you will become a member of the Bath Business Partnership and through meetings with the people that influence our business community from both the political and business world that you will take the opportunity to acquaint them with your company’s positions.
You will have an opportunity to express your views on the way government treats small to medium businesses, what restricts their growth and how the future wealth generators of the country are affected by legislation.
The Bath Business Partnership will also provide an exclusive forum for companies to promote their products and services and to network with other business people to share expertise and knowledge.
We will be seeking to appoint founding patrons to the club that are successful local business people as well as local members. 
For more information, please contact Léonie Spencer directly at bathbusinesspartnership@gmail.com

There are 4 high quality dinners per year in Bath. These will be held at prestigious locations. Club membership includes all food and drink with no extra charge, and the menus and bar are of a high standard commensurate with members inviting their clients, family or personal guests. There is no fundraising of any nature at the dinners.
We have agreements from a number of high profile speakers from the political and business world to attend future dinners. These include:
11th May Dinner - Chris Skidmore - Member of Parliament (MP) for Kingswood, South Gloucestershire and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He is a regular guest on BBC political programmes, such as The Daily Politics, and sits on the Commons Select Committee on Education.
September 2017 - To be announced
December 2017 - To be announced
It would be helpful to know who our members would find it useful to hear from so we can take this into account when planning  future speakers.
There is always plenty of time to ask questions and have discussions with our attending guests and politicians. There will be opportunities to sponsor dinners and become a patron.
All proceeds after the costs of the events etc. go to Bath Conservative Association. We really believe that the Conservative Party is the Party for Business, and are very proud of this.
