The Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club Inc will be holding their AGM on Thursday 12th April 2018 at 6:30pm in the Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club Clubrooms, 10 West End Road Herne Bay.
The Herne Bay Open 2018 will take place at the Club from the 6th to 8th April 2018. This is part of the Prince Series and will be the first fully digital squash tournament in NZ. Please enter via iSquash. The tournament will be Par 11 for all divisions and local players may be required to play on Thursday.
Secure your place in the draw by filling in the entry form now! Preliminary rounds will be played Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings or as agreed between competitors. Finals day is Sunday, 15 April, followed by prize giving and barbeque. A rain date of Sunday, 22 April has been set aside.
Conditions of entry are that you must be available to play on the finals day/s, and while we are attempting a full Open and B (S7/D7 and below) senior draw of singles, doubles, and mixed, we may need to run a first-round plate competition for the B comp if the Open entry numbers are low.
Tournament Director's decision on draw will be final and entry fee is a flat $10 for a maximum of three events. Juniors please enter via the form too. If you are ungraded, don't have a partner, enter anyway, we'll sort you out with a seeding and find you a good match for playing partner. Hurry, entries are only open for the next fortnight.
The HBPRC is seeking Personal Trainers (PTs) who will have exclusive training access to the Club gym. Please contact our Club Administrator at email@example.com with name, phone number and email address if you are interested in applying. Please note applications close this week.
