2017 Club Champs results

Last week we had our annual squash Club Champs. Entries were a little light on all divisions especially in the women’s with only four women entering. There were 26 entries overall with half of them being for C Grade Men. Hopefully we can improve on this in 2018. However there was still lots of rivalry and banter on and off the courts, and a fun tournament was had by all who played.

Thanks to everyone who helped out over the event and to those who did take the opportuntiy to compete.

Results as follows:

  • Men's Club Champ – George Crosby
  • Men's B Grade Champ – Malcolm Davidson
  • Men's C Grade Champ – Paul Raynes
  • Men's D Grade Champ – Patrick Hickey
  • Women's Club Champ – Aroha Willis
  • Women's C Grade Champ – Alyssa Jones

Get your child along to junior club night this Friday 4-6pm with club squash pro Mike Weston. Junior Club Night is free for members and $10 for non-members (juniors bring your squash-playing friends — rackets can be provided). Food is available from the club cafe from 6pm, so parents join the fun, stay for a drink at the bar and feed the kids dinner at the cafe. The junior squash programme has been extremely popular and if the demand continues we may look at splitting the sessions by ability or grading points.
