I wouldlike to inviteyou to participate in our annual Doubles ShinDig Doubles Fun Tournament. For those of you who have participated in the past, you know it’s an absolute blast! Here is how it works…
All you need to do is sign up on the doubles board outside the doubles courts and Terry, John and I will match you up with a partner so that each team is at an equal level and has an even chance of winning the big prize. You do not have to be a doubles player to participate, this is a great chance to get on the doubles court and see just how much fun the game really is. The tournament will be played in the evenings starting on Wednesday April 18th, Thursday April 19th, Friday April 20th and the finals on Saturday morning April 21st. Please have these dates available if you are planning on participating.
On the evening of Sat. April 21st we will be heading over to Drums n Flats restaurant (the old Safari Restaurant) to celebrate another successful year at the Pickering Squash Club. If you are planning to attend, please purchase your ticket asap so that we have accurate numbers for the evening. The evening will start with 2 free drink tickets, appetizers and some fun mingling. A buffet dinner with a wide variety of delicious options will be served including salmon, ribs, grilled chicken, pasta primavera and sides. To finish the evening off, those of you who are wearing your dance shoes can hit the dance floor and maybe even show us some moves we don’t see on the squash court! Tickets are $45 and you can purchase your tickets from your T&D captain, Fred Dizig, Winston Bell, Steve Dizig, Joan Hill, Terry Bruce or myself.
Sign up is limited so please be sure to sign up asap for the Shin-Dig tourney and feel free to contact me if you would like to reserve your banquet tickets!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the doubles court!

Congratulations to Aymen Ahmed and Adam Mitchell (Subbing for Sal Massara) on their win Wednesday night in the Doubles House League Finals against Joan Hill and Veru Parmer. It was a battle to the end that saw the match go to a 3 to 2 final (11/15, 15/12, 15/8, 14/15, 15/14). A great match was enjoyed by all.
DIVISION 1: Congratulations to Mike Todd and Mike Guimond who bested Kevin Cahill and John Whyte in a hard fought 3 to 1 match (12/15, 15/14, 15/13, 15/14). Mike and Mike came back from an 11/14 deficit in the fourth game after a controversial call by the Referee, Terry Bruce. If the call had gone in favour of Kevin and John the match would have gone to a fifth game. As it was, Mike and Mike were able to regroup, comeback and take the game. Good squash was enjoyed by all watching.
In the Division 2 match, After a 45 minute delay due to the late arrival of Juan Segovia, the match ended after two games due to time, Juan and David Annadappa took the win over Mark Rohlehr and Bill Robb. Juan and David took the match 2 to 0.
