Progress is underway on patching the holes on courts 1 and 4, as well as the replacement light over court 3. Thanks for your patience while we attend to these repairs.

On the positive side, the Masters games players have expressed their appreciation for allowing them to use our courts last week when theirs were flooded with serious damage.
Thanks also to Chris Lloyd for assisting us with taupolines and sandbags. These have been placed externally on the Emergency Exit Door behind squash court one and the two gym doors. Please do not open the doors until the bags have been removed.
