Squash News – November 2014

Points from the recent Squash Committee Meeting:

(1) Whilst court bookings are as strong as ever, we noticed a drop in membership renewals this year. So if you know of anyone interested in trying out, or coming back to, either squash or racketball, do mention Chesham Bois to them. If they contact me I would be happy to give them an introductory discount to ‘try before they buy’. Just call Rob on 01494 258693 and I’ll happy to chat it through.

(2) Club Night on 1st December falls on Monday this month. All 4 courts are booked from 6:30 till late. We thought we would promote doubles this month – so if you have an existing doubles partner or would like to try it out, do come along and we will try to organise a partner and opposition for you.

(3) Steve Sieff is writing up the progress of all our teams this year. His new weekly report is well worth a look here:

(4) We are fitting a new glass door and replastering the back wall of Court 1. It will be out of action from Wednesday 19th till Sunday 23rd. If members like it we will do the same for courts 2 and 3 – so do please give me your feedback.

(5) Reminders:
– This Friday 14th Nov @ 7pm – Exhibition Match and Squash AGM
– This Sunday 16th Nov @ 5pm – Handicap Tournament Finals
– Friday 28th November – Club AGM
– 21st to 23rd January next year – Bucks Closed Champs @ Wycombe

(6) I’m pleased to report that Neal Gibbons has brought the club booking PC back to life after some delicate surgery. At 9 years old it’s done really well so be kind to it and we may get a few more years life out of it. Our thanks to Neal!

(7) Finally a note from Sam/Darren on the Squash Shop:
