Dates and Fixtures
From Sunday 26th May to Friday 31st May (incorporating the Bank Holiday Monday), the Club will be holding its 73rd annual tour of the beautiful South Devon region. The tour will encompass a full suite of matches from Sunday to Thursday (Sun - *NEW FIXTURE* Thorverton CC; Mon - *NEW FIXTURE* Devon Dumplings (at Budleigh Salterton's ground); Tues – *T20* Seaton CC; Wed – Exeter CC; Thurs – Sidmouth CC) coupled with other tour distractions as pubs, golf, hotel bar etc. Playing, Lady and Social Members are all welcome on tour, and a number of families with young children regularly make the trip. Tourists can join the party for any number or combination of nights, as well of course as for the full week.

This year we return to Padbrook Park Hotel and Golf Resort (Tel: 01884 836100) ( in the village of Cullompton. The club has reserved 15 double/twin rooms at the hotel from Sunday to Wednesday night. However, we only have 9 rooms for Thursday night and these will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis with preference given to those tourists planning to be resident at the hotel for the full week. Price £45 per person per night room only. For further details, contact the Tour Manager, Paul Frost (details below).

Early-bird booking discount for all - 5%
Following its introduction last year, we are again offering a 5% early bird discount for anyone who signs up and pays in full for their accommodation by the end of April. Please note this will be on a non-refundable basis as the discount will be used to secure the rooms at a preferential rate.

Young tourists discount - 10%
Following its uptake and success, a 10% discount to all tourists under 25 years old (age as at 29 May) is also on offer to encourage our younger members to experience Devon tour week. For those younger tourists able to commit and pay by the end of April, this discount will apply in addition to the early bird discount above resulting in a whopping 15% off the normal price.
