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.

Senior club night starts at 6.30pm on Thursdays. Come along and meet fellow club members. We rotate games every 10-15 minutes
Join Jarrod and his team on Friday nights from 4pm to 6pm for coaching, fun games and just a little bit of competition.
The chosen carpet for the area immediately outside the squash courts is not in stock unfortunately. It has now been ordered but is three to four weeks away. There were other options, but none as suitable as the selected (which took a fair bit to find with the issue of ball visibility). Considering we have already waited three months we have decided to wait for our preferred option.
Pilates classes are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9.30am and Saturdays at 10am.

We have had a big clean up on our security system. If you find that your Access Card is not working please advise Pia at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will fix this for you.
A big thank you from Sacred Heart Church who received all the unclaimed lost property. A lot of hoodies and jackets were donated and these will be very helpful this winter for families living in poverty and new refugees families in New Zealand.
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.
All members whose membership expires in April will have received an email fron Pia last week. This week you should have received a phone call too. If you believe your membership is due in April and have not received an email or call, please contact the office. We are keen to have you all back this year!
