Squash Gear to Papua New Guinea

Squash NZ is collecting used squash gear to donate to Oceania Squash development projects. This year, any donated goods will be sent to Papua New Guinea for their new junior programme.

Do you have any old squash gear (rackets, clothing, bags, shoes etc) that could be donated?

Donations are due in early March so I will receive any donations at the Club office up until the end of Feb. Also, any squash gear that’s been in lost property now has a destination, so please collect any lost property you don’t want to go to PNG! There are some nice rackets behind the bar…

Squannish

Save the Date! This unique tournament will test your rackets skills to the extreme! Squash and Tennis combined to create one crazy afternoon of Squannish madness. Mark the date, more details soon… Sunday, March 9 @ 4pm.

Bar Volunteers needed!

Anyone dying to get behind the bar and serve our lovely members their hard earned beers and wines? Why not become a bar volunteer? It’s fun, social and best of all you get some freebie drinks and $50 off your membership after a year. You only need to commit to one session per month and if it doesn’t work for you then you can always swap with someone. You can join up with a mate and share the load, or take turns and only have to do it every other month. Due to some long serving volunteers leaving recently, we have three spots available.

For more details please contact Sophie in the Club office on service@hernebayrackets.co.nz, or phone 376 0681.

AGM 25th Feb, 6:30pm

More details will come soon but please save the date as we need as many members as possible to attend. All courts will be closed while the AGM is on. Positions available on the Committee will be notified soon and voting will be available soon after.  

DnA tournaments coming up:

Senior members 16th Feb @ 4pm, Ladies 12th Feb @ 10am. To register or find out more, contact David Mustard on 021 476 606 or email mustardtennis@xtra.co.nz. For those who don’t know DnA, or Defenders and Aggressors, this is a fun, very fast doubles tournament for all levels. David and his team feed the balls so there’s no serving, and points are awarded for winning points at the net. Great skills for your doubles play and heaps of fun too.

Squash Fit

Keen on getting your fitness up this squash season (it’s only 4 weeks away!). Join up with Club Coach Chris Lloyd as he takes you on a journey of pain in 6 weeks of squash fit sessions. Starts next Tuesday 11th Feb at 6 and will run for 6 weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 12 sessions $100 up front or $10 a session casually. The first session is testing so make sure you’re there! Text 027 286 6028 or email littlelloydy@hotmail.com to confirm. This is a great workout for all our new members – meet some of the regulars, get fit for the season ahead, have some fun and earn that beer in the bar afterwards!

Also the Office will be closed tomorrow (Thursday) and only open 1-2:30pm on Friday.
