Naphill & Walter's Ash Lunch Club

Meetings are held in the village hall on the second Wednesday of every month when we get together at 1pm for lunch at 1:15pm. Lunches vary each month, are very reasonable in cost, and are held in an informal atmosphere.

Currently we have 30 to 35 members attending the lunches, but we are always happy to welcome new members. Lunches are prepared by volunteer local residents, and we would be delighted if any people out there could support us by giving us two or three hours a month.

Naphill Lawn Tennis Club

A very friendly club that welcomes new members of all standards. We have regular junior coaching sessions and some "Rusty rackets" sessions at the beginning of the season for those who haven't played for a while. There are teams in the local leagues and general club sessions on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings all year round and on Thursday evenings in the summer. See our web site www.naphilltennisclub.org.uk for more information.

Naphill Men's Club

The Men's Club was founded in the 1930s by a small number of village men. They all put up a bond of £100 to get the Club off the ground. The Club has two full sized tables, one of which was donated by Mr & Mrs Conningsby Disraeli in 1938. The tables were last recovered in May 2004. There is also a bar billiards table which is being re-commissioned.

The Club is open to all men over the age of 18 who live in the wards of Naphill and Walter's Ash in the county of Buckinghamshire in England. Men who live outside those boundaries have to submit themselves to the committee for approval. Members who have moved away can continue their membership. Junior members (13 to 17 years) are welcome provided they are accompanied by a full member who remains responsible for them.

The Club operates both Snooker and Billiards tournaments every year starting in the autumn, with cups going to the winners.
