We have so many hoodies and drink bottles here at the club. Lost property will be displayed under the telly in the Club Lounge for one week. Please come inside/upstairs and look for your child’s hoodie, hat, racquet cover, drink bottles etc. Any unclaimed items will be donated to Sacred Heart Ponsonby Church’s outreach programme for underprivileged families and refugees.
We love that you want to share our Club with your friends. If they are not a member of the Club, they are welcome but please put $20 cash in the drop box next to the Pro Shop with your name on it if there is no one in the bar or in the office. Perhaps even entice them to join to avoid further visitor fee charges.
1. That you are the only person using your Access Card.
2. That the Club is locked up and secure before you leave, day or night.
3. That if you open the doors onto the deck or in the gym, that you close them.
This is for your safety and the safety of everyone.

This is a great starting point for both new and experienced players to ensure you can be confident of the rules.
All players competing in competitive play such as interclub and tournaments are expected to have completed and passed the exam.
The exam consists of 50 multi-choice questions and can be fully completed online through the Squash NZ website. The Club Referee qualification is valid for two years from the time of completion. Both players and non-players are able to complete the exam.
