In exciting news the RFA is delighted to announce the opening of a new weekly community Fives club: The Stoke Newington Swifts, hosted by Stoke Newington School from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesdays.

The first session will take place on Tuesday 8th November from 7pm to 9pm. Access will be through the school’s reception on Clissold Road London N16 9EX. Gloves and balls provided (but please bring your own if you have them). Beginners and experienced players alike are very welcome — all you need are trainers and enthusiasm!

Please email Matthew Hale at matthale235@gmail.com with any questions.


General Secretary Chris Blakeley reports: From the RFA perspective the first evening was a great start. We had several established players come to play, plus some newcomers (for now, all connected through SNS). The arrangements worked perfectly, nobody had any difficulty getting in and in particular our thanks to the School for allowing access to the facilities. Some of us came a long way and had a long way home! A special “call out” to Paul, the caretaker, who was very helpful and welcoming. Thanks to all at the School and to Matt Hale for making the arrangements. Please do keep encouraging pupils, parents and staff from SNS to come and give it a try!
