The 2018 TOY DRIVE AND FUN TOURNAMENT was a great success and a great time was had by all. What is more, a great many children will have a Happy Christmas due to the generosity of our members. Here is a picture of the group.
Thank you to all that participated. Thank you to Ron Del for the great Pics. Click HERE for More pics. And a special thanks to Nicole Pirko for organizing and to Steve and Fred Dizig for delivering the Toys to the Durham Children’s Aid Society. They were thrilled with the contribution.
The holiday season is almost here and I would like to invite everyone to join us for our annual holiday “toy drive” fun night. The night will include both doubles and singles squash round robin fun games for all levels of players (the more the merrier)! I ask that everyone bring an unwrapped toy to donate to a local charity (Durham Children’s Aid) to help support families in need of buying gifts for their children this season. The evening will finish off at Sabina’s restaurant for some drinks and food for those of you who would like to join us! Here are the details:
Date: Monday Dec. 10th
(both doubles and singles house leagues are done)
Time: 6:00 sharp
What to bring: an unwrapped children’s toy
Please feel free to respond to me and let me know if you would prefer to play doubles or singles or sign up on the boards in either the singles or doubles court area to participate in this fun, social event. Looking forward to playing some “fun” squash and helping to put smiles on some children’s faces this holiday season!

Report from Nicole Pirko – Pickering Squash Professional
3 of Pickering’s top junior players take home gold medals in the Grand Prix Silver Tournament!
Pickering was well represented at this weekends Grand Prix Silver #3 tournament at Parkview Athletic Club. A very special congratulations to Ranya Malik, Rayn Malik and Raamis Malik who all took home gold medals by winning their respective age group title. I was extremely proud of all our juniors who participated this weekend not only for their hard work and dedication on the court but most importantly for their positive attitude and sportsmanship throughout the entire tournament.
Get ready for another Great Fun Night at the Pickering SquashClub. On Monday December 10th the fun starts with bringing a new unwrapped toy for the PSC TOY DRIVE. This will be followed by a fun tournament. Stay tuned for more details.
We had yet another successful Harvest Hit doubles squash tournament at the Pickering Squash Club this past weekend with over 35 teams from all over the GTA. Players with a wide range of experience from “professional” to “first time doubles tournament player” all running around the doubles court chasing that little blue ball yelling “mine”, “yours”…
Every player that participated agrees how much fun this sport is and they are already securing a partner and marking off the next event on their calendars.
Congratulations to all the participates and thanks to all the fans that came out to cheer on their favourite team!
