The Club Executive urge our members to properly warm up before your matches and play safely. It is no longer a fun sport if people get hurt.

Marc, Sara-Jane, Jim and Shan. 3rd/4th finals.

Retro Squash Event NOV 19th Has Been Cancelled

Hello Pickering Squash Players:

The Retro Squash Fun event originally scheduled for Friday November 19th has been CANCELLED due to low sign-up.

Unfortunately we had a very low response to the sign up for this event.  We are attributing this low response to our membership being cautious with regard to close contact while we are still in the COVID-19  pandemic.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our membership but fully support your caution in this difficult time. 

The PSC Executive have made the decision to cancel the event with the idea of possibly rescheduling sometime in the New Year.    When the pandemic is declared over, we will then again be scheduling events such as tournaments and fun nights. 

Please stay safe.
