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!
 
Nicole
