HI all, bit of news today, including some congrats to our Squash Pennant winners - with a very painful but memorable story to tell.
Some important reminders today about Squash Club Champs and Spring Interclub - please don't miss these as there will only be one more reminder and we don't want you to miss out.
In today's news:
1. Bar Volunteers needed - it's fun and rewarding (we hope) so do get in touch, it's only once a month!
2. Spring Squash Interclub Sign Up
3. Men's 7 Squash Pennant Winners
4. Note about Club Tennis Day on Sunday
5. Reminders: Club Champs Squash and Like us on Facebook!
Due to a few of our long timers completing their 'time' on bar, we have three vacancies for bar volunteer.
The commitment is only one night/day per month, on the same date each month. Weekday shifts start at 6pm and weekends are 3-6pm (2-6pm when summer tennis interclub is on). You can always swap with someone if you can't do it. You can even share with someone else!
After a year of service you get $50 off your membership fees and you get three free drinks on your shift, but other than that you only get paid in respect and admiration from your fellow members.
This is a great way to get to know members, promote yourself/ your business and have fun!
No experience necessary and all training is provided. Contact Sophie in the office if interested.
We're on the last stretch of Interclub for the year now with SPRING! Play starts Oct 13/14 and goes for 8 weeks.
Please note that you need to sign up if you want to play - entries will NOT be rolled over from Winter.
Entries close Tuesday 30th September.
Our Men's 7 Squash team are Pennant winners! Playing top seeds Belmont Park, the boys played a tough set of matches that was so close it needed the final player, Matt Devitt to win at least 2 games out of 5.
Matt did this, but in the 5th and last game of the night at 8 all tore his achillies tendon - OUCH! Matt ended up in hospital and has a fetching cast on his leg and is off court for a long time now. Well Matt, speedy recovery but no one could tell you that you didn't take one for the team! That's commitment.
Congrats to Matt, Bill Amosa, Marty Davis, Emma Winstanley, James Bidwell, Wayne Knights, Ian Riley, Jason Schumacher and Tim Marshall.
Message to all who come down for tennis on Sunday afternoons - please note that due to a DnA tournament on Sunday, Club afternoon will be brought forward to 12noon-3pm this weekend. Apologies for any inconvenience, this was caused by bad weather.
Signed up for Club Champs yet? Go on, it's great practice and I hear that a few of you are quite good and might actually be in the running for supremecy in your grades! If not, at least you'll be participating and having an awfully fun time :-) Registrations must be in through iSquash by this Saturday, 27th as draws will be done on Sunday.
