Hi there Pirates Friends and Family
Thanks so much for the support at the Club Draw. The money was not won as Joy Tupholme whose name came out first and Greg Maud whose name came out second were not at the draw so the next draw will be R2 150.00 which will take place on Friday 28th March. Pirates is surviving with all this rain and we have not washed away yet!! Please LIKE The Pirates Tennis Facebook Page

PIRATES GYM – THINGS ARE STARTING TO HAPPEN
Whilst the Gym is undergoing renovation and kitting out, there are some exciting group and individual training opportunities already available for all our members and their family and friends, so have a look at the attached
brochure and the below information in this regard.
Ultimate Athlete (UA) is thrilled to announce the opening of its 4th facility in Jo’burg at the Pirates Sports Club in Greenside on Tuesday 18 February at 18:00.
Ok so what is UA?
UA instructors provide group training that focuses on functional or compound exercises aimed at making you fitter, faster, stronger and more toned. We follow a block training schedule to limit the chance of injury and burn out. The focus is on exercise form to achieve speed, agility and power. You get faster, stronger and more agile by training with good form and in appropriate blocks to avoid injuries and burn out.
If you are looking for a fun way to ‘shape up and get fitter, faster and stronger’ in a friendly environment, come and give UA a try.
Tuesday and Thursday evening from 18:00-19:00
Additional classes will be added as required
