End of Year almost upon us
Friday 1st of December. Officially the first day of summer but this has not stopped people coming in and having a hit on the squash courts. A night of last for 2017 and also a night of thank you’s. The Development squad and the Academy had their final sessions during the week and will start again in February 2018. Friday night was the last night for Junior Club night. The night started with the usual 5.30pm group warming up and having some hits and lots of fun. 6.30pm the next crew descended and not long after the food and extra goodies appeared to the delight of the kids. It was not wasted and did not take long to disappear as was the story with the lemonade and coke that Johnny had given them. A big thank you to Paul Tuffin for his year once again co-ordinating junior club night with his able helpers John Lawrence and Graeme Knowles.
Friday night was also the last 60 club, but also a night to celebrate the achievements of the club in 2017. WMG been the biggest event of the year but also a year of many other achievements. Gabe and Jim Fitzsimons were both given a small gift to acknowledge their wins – Gabe Volunteer of the Year – Squash Auckland and Jim (it was also his birthday) Volunteer of the Year for Harbour Sport. A massive feat to win this having to compete against all the other sports in North Harbour. And last but by no means least Russell was given a small thank you gift and acknowledged for his past 3 years a President. Russell had handed the reins to Sasa at the AGM the night before. With Russell at the helm the club not only was named as Squash Auckland Club of the Year 2017also took out the big award. Squash NZ Club of the Year. A huge congratulations to everyone that is involved in the club and the guidance from the top.
Ladies night is scheduled to finish on Monday 11th and starting again on the 15th January 2018
