Newsletter – Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May 2017 – Week 4


Congratulations to our Touch Under 10 team who won the Cup at the 2nd Singapore Junior Touch Championships – a huge achievement, congratulations girls! The Under 12 and Under 14 teams also put in some great performances – well done to the girls and their coaches for all their hard work!


We are looking forward to seeing many of you at the Curry night THIS Saturday, being held at the Singapore Cricket Club (Connaught Drive, Singapore 179681) in the Padang Room. As you enter the main reception, please head up the main staircase and we will be there to meet you. Kick off is 7.30pm.

For non members of the Singapore Cricket Club there is no parking at the club. The easiest and cheapest place to park is Parliament House car park (1, Parliament Place, Singapore 178880) or underneath the National Gallery. However, a taxi is recommended!

If you have your ticket and haven’t paid yet, don’t forget to drop by the clubhouse at training on Saturday morning, where we will be accepting payment!


We will be handing out playing jerseys to the U8 and U9 who were away at a tournament last weekend, and also for those kids who were unable to pick up shirts at training last Saturday.

We will be handing them out to the children in the clubhouse at Dempsey. Once again, as it will be busy, please could we ask that you come to pick your tops up at the allocated times and DO NOT wait until after training has finished as the next age groups will be up at the clubhouse collecting their jerseys.

9:00AM to 10:15AM – U10, U11, U12, U13

Training fees for Term 2 are now due. To check how much you owe for your child, please go to their TeamSnap profile and select the Payments tab. The fees due for your child/children for this term will be noted there.

You need to select your child’s profile, and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.


Please note that we have introduced a late payment charge. A 10% charge will be added to all unpaid fees after the 4th week of term – for this term, the late fee will come into effect on Friday 19th May 2017.


We now accept PayPal through the TeamSnap application. Just go to the Payments tab on your child’s profile, and you will find the fee amount due and a link for PayPal if you would like to use this service. Alternatively, you can also pay by bank transfer:

Details for a bank transfer are as follows:

Account No: 0339049654 

Bank Name: DBS

Please reference your child’s name and age group on the payment.


Please can we remind parent to avoid parking at the car park at Dempsey, especially during the early morning sessions. In particular, please avoid parking on the hill coming into Dempsey, as this leaves space for only one car to pass and causes bottlenecks both coming in and out of Dempsey.

More parking can be found behind Ben and Jerrys at Dempsey Hill.
