Michael “Whispering Death” Holding, will be in conversation with Robin Jackman, and this promises to be a memorable evening. Garner, Marshall, Daniel and Holding were awesome quickies, in the heady days of West Indies cricket.
Michael is a superb person, a notable voice of cricket, and needs no introduction. He has been a frequent visitor to SA, over the past few years, and we always look forward to listening to his expert commentaries. We are sure that the attendance record will be under threat, and broken and look forward to seeing you all.

Venue to be confirmed
WPCC is a heavy water user, with the showers and toilets in constant use. With Level 6B water restrictions coming in to effect on the 1st of February, we need to reduce our water usage materially, not just because of the financial burden this would place us under with punitive charges, but more importantly because we need to reduce our consumption of potable water markedly. WPCC needs to contribute to the overall campaign to save water.
Although we have made significant progress on a water usage solution that will materially reduce our potable usage, we still need to save water in the short term until this solution is installed. We have therefore taken the decision to close our showering facilities with immediate effect. We understand that this is an inconvenience – especially to hockey and squash players – but Day Zero is even more of an inconvenience. We therefore need to play our part in avoiding that situation. We hope that this remedy will play a small part in assisting the overall campaign to save water.
We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
WPCC Executive Committee

Monday 6 November
5.30pm – 6pm
The Blitzbokke have enjoyed much success recently and to have the double with Allister Coetzee in one year, is a great privilege for us. We are hoping that Neil will bring one or two players with him. They will then be off to Dubai, and return to Cape Town early December, for the next 7’s leg.
We are once again going to support the SA Legion with their Poppy Day Welfare Fund raising efforts. We were acknowledged by The Legion for our 2016 efforts and hope to better the amount this year. For November 6th we will charge R30 for members and R60 for guests.
We hope to have a really large turnout to listen to Neil, and look forward to seeing you all once again.
Yours Under the Oaks

Jeremy “The Rhino” Fredericks, very well-known Supersport Cricket commentator, and raconteur, has agreed to be with us and will be in conversation with Robin Jackman. These two characters have traveled together for many years, covering the length and breadth of SA. This should be a very entertaining and a not to be missed evening.
Let’s have a great turnout.
