Squash Innerclub – Starts Thursday 17th October

Our Spring edition of Squash Innerclub is going to start on Thursday the 17th October and go through until 29th November.

This is a social squash event that runs for 7 weeks on Thursday nights. You enter as an individual player, but we arrange everyone into teams – and each week you get to play someone of a similar level from another team. All games are held at the Khandallah courts, as this is an in-house competition.

This is a fun event, and is a great way to meet other players and get some regular games. We also open this up to non-members too, so if you have friends who would like to give squash a go for a few weeks then encourage them to enter too.

Entry fee is $10 for members with playing rights and $30 for non-members.  Please enter using the form below

Each week there’s a supper, quiz and prize giving, as well as a few extra team activities.

If you have any question about inner club please email Jason at:alyhan@hotmail.co.nz
