UPDATE ON AIR HALL AND INDOOR TENNIS
It was hoped that the Air Hall would have been back in operation for indoor tennis by now. Unfortunately due to the continuing unfavourable weather conditions, the Dome’s technicians were unable to come over and replace one end of the membrane and  carry out other alterations that will strengthen the membrane.
It is hoped that the necessary work will be done early next week should weather conditions be dry and no wind.  We will keep you posted.

Entry Forms in Club NOW
Players cannot be accepted on the day even if there are spaces in the draw as Irish Squash points are awarded for these events and ranking is important, redraws would be necessary and impossible at this stage. Thanks for your understanding.
If for some reason you enter the Tournament and need to pull out, can you please contact the organizers as a lot of effort is put into the draws and running of these events and it is unfair to all if you do not turn up.
We will be looking for volunteers to run this event. Please email squash@suttonltc.com
