We are a voluntary Club

 

As a voluntary Squash Club, much of the work around the Club is undertaken by our friends / volunteers and, in February, we had two special helpers to sweep our courts.

See our cleaners below.

Work hard, Play hard ...

 

Many of us understand the benefits of playing squash and we've been pleased to hear from three student members who have gone off to University for the first time this year.

David Thomas, Henry Scarsbrook and Cameron Dennis have all settled into their Fresher Year and discovered the importance of sport in helping them to work hard and play hard while meeting new people in a College environment.

All three have signed up to play for their College Squash Teams and it was good to see how they'd developed their games further, when they returned home at Christmas.

 

Aspiration "smashed" but, it's still alive!

 

We're still hoping to achieve our Third Court but that aspiration was partly smashed during a visit to Bethesda to collect a Glass Squash Wall that had become surplus to requirement .

We were offered the glass wall by Bethesda Leisure Centre as they were changing their courts into a fitness studio.

On 7 October, with help from Centre' staff, Mark Davies and Jim Tunley were loading the third (very heavy) piece onto a van (very kindly loaned by John Williams), when the slightest knock completely shattered it - a real shame but lessons were learned on that visit!

 

Shattered !

 

Internal Leagues started again in October

 

Members were asked to express their interest in joining our new Monthly Internal Leagues, to commence during October.

Following a positive response, for the first time since March 2020, the new Leagues went live on 5 October.

If any other members would like to join in the November Leagues, please speak to Jim or Mark.

 

Squash Wales new membership scheme

 

During September, the new Squash Wales Membership platform was launched.

The new membership offers all players discounted benefits from over 200 High Street brands; it is essential for all members playing in any of our Teams.

New season started on 23 September

 

The 2021-22 Season started in the North West Counties Squash Leagues on 23 September; we have three Teams representing the Club this season - to view all of our fixtures, go to the Teams Page.

The situation regarding our North Wales Leagues, with only a few teams entered and venues remaining closed, has still to be agreed.

 

We've been waiting for this ...

 

On 6 August, the Welsh Government announced that all Wales would move to Alert Level 0 from Saturday, 7 August

This news means that the Squash Club will now be open for normal play, without any modification.

Some protocols will however need to be continued, including the wearing of face masks when visiting the Club, that is unless you're on court playing.
