Midweek Tennis

It looks like Alert Level 2 is here for a while. We are playing Midweek tennis as usual, but with the extra precautions of either using the QR code or signing in on entry, using the hand sanitiser and maintaining social distancing. Like before, if you are feeling unwell please stay home.

Our summer season will commence on Thursday 3 September (provided the weather is fine) with a fun tournament, spot prizes and pot luck lunch. Everyone is welcome, and you can bring a friend. During our summer season we will begin play at 9.30am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Further details about events during the summer season will be posted soon.

World Squash Day Saturday Oct 9, 2021

Our Club is supporting World Squash day this Saturday.  This year Squash NZ, Districts and clubs are fundraising for the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation.

We have organised a 12-hour marathon (8am – 8pm) for Court 4.  We have also booked court 3 for overflow fun.  We have organised an itinerary for the day on court 4 but would love for as many Members as possible to come and participate during the day.

Any help on the day would be appreciated.  And once we finish at 8pm we can relax in the club rooms and chat with our fellow members.

Remember if you want to make a donation to the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation here is the link: https://events.mentalhealth.org.nz/fundraisers/khandallahtennissquashclub?ref=ch_3Jh9ZwKQCt56Bd4D1fOOzFI1
