We Want Your Views about Squash and Racketball Activities for 2017/18
What activities would you like to participate in during the 2017/18 season?
In addition to the annual squash and racketball leagues and tournaments held at the club during each season we would like to offer other opportunities for members to participate in.
Below are some ideas of activities we could offer. If you would like to participate in any of these, please write your name on the sheet near the courts and tick the activities that you’d like to do.
Held over a weekend as a social event. Grading in squash and racketball is designed to allow everyone to play in a tournament but to ensure that the games that are played are as close as possible so county players don’t play beginners/improvers.
Here are some descriptions for your guidance:
A : Advanced – 1st team/county & above
B : 2nd team – internal leagues 1 – 4
C : Internal leagues 4 – 8
D : Internal leagues 8 – 10 & below
E : Beginner A : Advanced – County & above
B : Team Player
C : Silver Server
D : Beginner
Watching British Open / National Championships
Taking a minibus / coach from the club, attend a top squash event (probably in Manchester) to watch the later stages of a major event. This would be a whole day out, providing members the opportunity to watch some world class squash and visit the squash retailers “marketplace” to see the latest equipment.
Team Training Squash and Racketball
Weekly training for aspiring players, team squad members and those wanting to sharpen up their game. This session would be once a week with one of the club coaches delivering it. The session aim is to tighten up your play, work you hard, get you to think tactically and to have fun. There would be a small charge for this session.
If you have any other ideas please contact Matt McFahn, Guy Birkett or Marc Hughes to share these, we can add them to the list of options and canvass your views.
