Family Quiz Night – Saturday 7th December 2019

CTC will be hosting a Family Quiz Night on Saturday 7th December from 6pm to 8:30pm for players and their families. The quiz will feature questions for all ages and will be on various subjects, including a Christmas themed round, so you can test your knowledge against our quizmaster and others!

We have spaces for 10 teams to enter, with each team consisting of 4-6 players. If you can’t get 4-6 people together to make a complete team then join forces with other players/families or let us find you a team on the night, and see if you can be crowned winners! There is a £12 entry fee per team, which will help fund a safety alarm system for our new disabled toilet.
Following feedback from last year’s event we will be trialing a “chippie run”, set for half time of the quiz. Entrants will be required to select and pay for their order from a chosen local fish and chip shop when they arrive (please note: this is in addition to the entry fee and everyone will have a free choice from the menu on offer).

Spaces are allocated on a first come first serve basis so book your table now by contacting CTC Head Coach Jonathan Morgan on jonathanmorgan@caerphillytennis.co.uk or 07891 640642. And remember to follow CTC on social media  (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) for updates on this event and the latest news from the Club.
