Hi All,

The weather has unfortunately taken a bit of a damp turn here in St. Andrews. Here's hoping that the weather takes a turn for the better in the next couple of days!

A few more items on this weeks bulletin. 

1) Give it a Go Session*
The schedule for the Give it a Go session has now been finalised and will be submitted for printing at the beginning of next week! If there are any urgent changes please get back to me ASAP.

2) Club Committee Contacts* 
Please could you all provide a full contact list for your committees to Hannah it should include name, position, uni email and mobile number. Please have submitted this by no later than Aug. 6th

3) Facilities*

Those clubs who requested facilities at the end of last academic year for 2013-14 will shortly receive a PDF from Pete of what has been booked for you at the Sports Centre for the coming year.  As closely as is possible, the allocations reflect what was requested by you or your predecessor but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Pete on  There will be some dates that are deliberately not booked for you; this is for a specific reason (all your teams are away playing fixtures on that day) or event (such as Reffin’ Brilliant), another one-off booking, other fixtures or exams, etc.  Please take a note of those weeks when your sessions have not been booked as there will not be a reminder and you will want to inform any members, coaches, visitors, and so on that these sessions will not go ahead.  In most – but not all – cases, facilities have also been booked for your fixtures.  This is an on-going process so no need to worry if yours are not booked yet, we would simply rather not wait any longer to get these allocations out to you for your information.  You can check your own fixtures though as they should all now be live on the BUCS website -  Where you have local league fixtures that will also require facilities please let Pete know the details for these as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made in terms of pitch/court bookings, changing rooms and access for oppositions.


If you do not receive a PDF of your facility allocation, or only receive confirmation of your Give It A Go session, by first thing Monday morning (29th July) then your club has nothing booked for the year ahead.  This may be because you are one of the 17 clubs that do not use facilities here at the Sports Centre; or it may be that you are one of the six clubs that did not request any facilities before the start of the summer.  If you are one of these six and you would like access to training sessions here at the Sports Centre during the academic year 2013-14 please contact Pete as soon as possible with your requirements.  All other clubs are welcome to contact Pete with any questions or issues and he will get back to you as quickly as possible.

That is all for now! Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
