Ladies night - Weds from 6.30pm Mens beginners - Tues from 6.30pm Junior club night - Thurs 6-7pm (parents welcome) Club night - Thurs from 7pm
Court 2 renovations are running a little late as can be seen from the photograph below taken yesterday evening. The good news is the delivery of the final tranche of LED fittings which Thorn otherwise were not expecting in the country until Aug 28th. Once court 2 lights are installed light measures will be taken and we will reduce the number of fittings in the end courts where light reflecting from the side wall is creating very high light intensity.
The cleaners are working closely with us to remove dust and we are roughly a fortnight from completion plus probably a couple of extra days to remove a ight fitting from court 4, install ventilation ducts and generally tidy up.
Annual club tournament This runs from July 9-11 and will be excellent prep for Superchamps bound players and I encourage your participation via i squash here, We already have 8 early entrants.
Club get together
It was great to bring together a wide range of club members at this event and welcome two new members on the night. Photos can be found on our FB site, thanks to Sam and Graham for the Superchamps briefing and tasty mulled wine.
On a break this past week, round 6 features this coming Mon/ Tues.
New members & grade improvements
No new members this week but, based on recent club night attendees, our next member will not be far away.
