Brenda the Bar

As Peter Cross discovers there’s more to Brenda Munro than being one of our favourite bar volunteers. Brenda was bitten by the squash bug early. She grew up, the eldest of six, in Rotorua where Colin Brownlee and his family built the first squash courts in that area and the Munros were early converts. This was back in the 1970s when squash was the coming sport. Brenda’s dad, who was an excellent tennis player, took up squash as did her mother and then Brenda when she was ten or eleven. There was a strong junior programme in place and pretty soon she was playing in tournaments and remembers how the club used to hire buses that took players and parents up to Auckland and around the North Island for tournaments picking up other juniors along the way.
