More Upcoming Events at Pickering Squash Club

Hi Everyone,
We have two very fun upcoming events at the club and I hope that you will take part in both of them!
We will be hosting a social “Racquets Night” fun tournament following our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Tuesday September 26th.
We encourage everyone to come out to our AGM for the latest information regarding the club, to ask any questions, provide input into planning future events.  Also, please consider joining the executive team for the 2017/2018 season. Immediately following our short AGM meeting, there will be a fun singles and doubles squash event.  If you have not played singles squash in a while or you are not an experienced doubles player, there is no need to worry because the night is all about fun.  We will simply be playing an organized round-robin in both areas and then head over to Sabina’s for some drinks and social following the events.
There will be a sign up sheet posted outside court 4 (singles courts), or you can send me an email if you would like to be a part of this fun night.
Date: Tues. Sept. 26th
Sign up deadline: Monday Sept. 25th
Time: 6:00 sharp (in doubles court area)
Next on the list of events is: National Squash Day – Sat. Sept. 30th
 Starting at 11:45 on Sat. Sept. 30th (following my weekly junior program), two of our top men’s Pickering Club Members will be playing a fun “demo” exhibition match to showcase skills and strategies at the top level.
12:00-12:30 Free Introduction to Squash Adult Clinic – This clinic is designed to give interested people in our community a chance to experience the basic rules and techniques of squash.   I encourage you all to bring friends, siblings, co-workers and partners for a chance for me to introduce them to this amazing game!  Absolutely no experience is necessary and all equipment is provided.
12:30-2:00 (following our demo exhibition match, all members of the Pickering Squash Club are invited to come and participate in the fun afternoon round robin on both the doubles and the singles courts.  I also encourage players from the Free Squash Clinic to stay and play with our more experienced members.
Come out and help us celebrate this wonderful sport that has brought fun, fitness and friendship into our lives!
Sign up for this event will also be posted shortly on the board across from court 4.
See you on the courts,
Nicole

Pickering Squash Shows It Has Heart With Toys Donated To Those Less Fortunate

The Fun Tournament held on December 13th was a great success and a good time was had by all. Thank you to Steve Dizig and his Social Committee for putting on a great evening.

More important than the fun was the pile of toys that were donated for those less fortunate.

Steve was honoured to be the one to deliver the pile of toys to the Durham Children’s Aid Society on our behalf.  Steve managed to get them all there even though he was dying to keep some of them to play with himself.

Great job Steve.  We all thank you for your work on our behalf.
