Capilano Tennis Club has a long tradition of afternoon tea. It is a social highlight of the weekend. If you’ve never participated before, fear not, here is the ABC of afternoon tea.
- Act early. It’s always more fun as a team and tea is no exception. There is a sign up board in the clubhouse so find a friend or partner and choose your Saturday (If it rains, then you default to Sunday.)
- Do not be intimidated. This is a simple tea and cookies. If you want to be a little more creative, feel free, but it doesn’t have to be a huge production.
- Call or email all your friends, tell them it’s your afternoon tea and come out to support you.
Social play starts at 1pm and tea will be served between 2:30-3:00. From 3:00 onward, enjoy tea and arrange your own match play.
If you have no idea how many people will turn up, bring your supplies to the clubhouse and set everything out when you have an idea of numbers. A $3 donation for tea in a kitty jar on the table will usually cover the cost of supplies.
Any questions, just ask any of the board!
