Working Bee – Thursday 25th March from 6.30pm court & changing room cleaning plus changing court lightbulbs. Pizza & beers to follow for volunteers

COVID UPDATE – unfortunately we are back at level 2 this week. Interclub has been cancelled however our Club Night and Thursday night summer league will continue for those willing to play. An update will occur later this week regarding next week once more clarity on levels is known.

Please be aware of the player guidelines shown later in this newsletter and maintain social distancing where possible. Hopefully being at level 2 is a short term thing.

AGM update – after a long discussion the name change was voted against at this time. It was suggested more work be done on getting the whole club involved with the potential name change so watch this space

Happy Squashing
