Squash Innerclub – Autumn 2019

Our Autumn edition of Squash Innerclub is going to start on Thursday the 28th February and go through until 11th April.

Thursday 21st February will be an Innerclub open evening where both non-members and members can come down to play a bit of squash, meet up with others who will be playing, identify how you skill level matches with others, and get any other Innerclub questions answered.

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 and $30 for non-members.

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

Entries have now closed, but if you would still like to take part, please email Andrew: office@treequility.co.nz
