Reminder: Holiday Toy Drive & Fun Squash Night, Monday Dec 18!

Just a reminder that this year’s Holiday toy drive & squash fun night is this Monday, Dec 18, start time 6:15 pm sharp.

Please remember to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to a local charity (Durham Children’s Aid) to help support families in need of buying gifts for their children this holiday season.

For those who have yet to sign-up, sign-up sheets are still posted outside of the singles & doubles courts. You can sign-up for either the singles or doubles round robin. But if you don’t get a chance to sign up – show up anyway!

All levels are welcome to come out and play! We will be meeting in the doubles courts at 6:15 to collect the toys and go over the game rules for both the singles and doubles play for the evening.

If you are unable to attend Monday evening, please drop off an unwrapped toy either Sunday morning between 10am and 12noon in the doubles courts. It means so much to those less fortunate this holiday season!

When the round robins are done, we will be going out for some food, beverage & holiday cheer!

We hope to see everyone there!

Check out the toy drive from last year!

2020 Christmas Toy Drive

Each year, the Pickering Squash Club Members band together to help make Christmas a little better for those less fortunate. The challenges of 2020 are not going to stop us from continuing this tradition.

This year we will not be able to have our annual Toy Drive Round Robin Fun Night. Covid-19 has put a damper on this. The Club will instead provide new ways to collect donations for this worthy cause.

In association with the City of Pickering and the Chestnut Hills Developments Recreation Complex (The Pickering Recreation Complex) we are setting up DONATION BOXES in the lobby of the Recreation Complex. We are encouraging all our members to bring new unwrapped toys to drop off in the boxes. The drop off point will be available till the last week in November when the Club Executive will deliver them to the Durham Children’s Aid Society. This will give the Society time to sort and distribute then to needy families.

The courts are now open for play. Reserve a court. Get out and play a match. And when you do, bring along an unwrapped toy for the Donation Box.
