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.

Squash Innerclub– Spring 2022

Our Spring edition of Squash Innerclub commences on Thursday the 20 October and go for 7 weeks. As usual the final night will switch from the Thursday to the Friday 2nd December.

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.  Please enter using the Survey Monkey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PWH35KR

Each week there’s a light supper and quiz. The final will be on Friday 2 December. 

If you have any questions about Innerclub please email Jason at: alyhan@hotmail.co.nz

Entries close on Thursday 6 October 2022.

Cheers
