Now in it’s 17th year, the 2019 Pickering Squash Club Golf Tournament in Support of The St. Paul’s on the Hill Food Bank has hit another Hole-In-One. This year we raised over $9,000 for the Food Bank. That will go directly to buying milk and other staples for those in need and struggling to feed their families.
Over the last 10 years of support to the Food Bank, the tournament has managed to raise well over $100,000.
Thank you to all who participated by playing and a huge thank you to those who gave their time to help run the event. This would not be the success it is without volunteers.
In September of 2009, the Pickering Squash Club and The Pickering Recreation Complex celebrated the opening of the Pickering Doubles Squash Courts. In honour of this 10 year anniversary, The Pickering Squash Club is throwing a party to celebrate this momentous event.
There will be Professional Matches, Junior Matches, Demonstrations, Presentations, Music, Food and Liquid Refreshments. All will be culminated with a party at a local Pub. Watch here for the details coming soon.
Don’t miss it. Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 21st 1:00 PM on.

On Saturday, May 4th, about 30 members of The Club and members of Chris Brown’s family, came out to Pontypool to help Chris with cleaning the workshops, stable, garage and grounds around the Farm. Led by Kevin Cahill and Tom Quinn in the fields and barns and Kim Cahill in the Kitchen feeding the group, the jobs were completed quickly. Here are some pics of the day.
This was a great example of how the PSC is not just about Squash but is more about being an extended family. We can be proud of the Club we all love.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our good friend and fellow squash player, Ian Parsons. Ian died in a tragic accident at his farm on Monday March 25, 2019.
Ian was a long time member of the Pickering Squash Club serving on the executive eighteen times, nine of which were as President. He was the 1997-1998 recipient of the Chris Doona Award. He is most notably remembered as the driving force that guided the Club during the planning and construction of the Doubles Squash Courts. His hard work over a ten year period resulted in the opening of the courts in 2009.
Ian will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with him on and off the court. He was always a gentleman willing to help anyone learn and improve at the game he loved so much.
