Business house has just finished on Wednesday. Many of those that are new to squash plus those that have played a bit got together on Saturday afternoon to have a fun afternoon of squash. Teams of 2 which were made up of newbie or junior D grade and below and one other player. The first player played to 11 with the other team player coming on and they played to 21. So some team members came on to the court 11 – 0 down and a lot of ground to make up. There were over 15 teams on the afternoon with many teams made up on the afternoon. The afternoon was to be fun for all involved with new and old players getting in to the spirit of the afternoon. Each team provided nibbles to share and there was a BBQ on completion of games for all. With such a success this will be held again in a couple for months.
