I would like to invite you all to participate in the Pickering Squash Club’s annual Lee Hanebury Memorial Tournament on the weekend of Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2020. This is a tournament weekend you do not want to miss! Tournament events include Men’s and Women’s singles events levels A-E (This means everyone at every level can play), as well as Doubles Men’s and Women’s B and C draws. Women may play both singles and doubles (only required to pay one entry fee) but due to limited court time and larger men’s draws, men may only play one event. Your entry fee includes a great tournament souvenir, licensed bar, Saturday breakfast and lunch, Saturday night doubles Calcutta followed by a social night at our local restaurant and lots of squash. You must register on the Squash Ontario website at: https://www.squashontario.com/tournaments-editor/2020/1/31/lee-hanebury-memorial-tournament The sign up deadline is Sunday Jan. 26th but please sign up early to avoid disappointment as some draws may fill up fast!
