Canowindra Squash Club prepares for Championships

The Canowindra Squash Club Championships are planned for the week commencing Monday, November 15 with finals, presentation, barbecue and a dinner to be held on Saturday, November 20.

The Championship preliminary games will be held in the evening of November 15 and Thursday, November 18 and depending on the number of entries we may need to include another night during the week to accommodate all of these games.

This year we have gained some new junior players who have joined the club, which is a delight to see.

With the addition of our new juniors, we have 23 in total at the club ranging from primary school to high school ages.

It is wonderful to see these super keen young players turning up each week for their games and improving out of sight.

We sure hope to see you all joining in the fun of the championships and showing everyone how much you have improved and how you are all enjoying your squash.

The Championships are graded and therefore all levels of squashing abilities are encouraged to participate.

Our nomination categories for the Championship's include: Open (Open, B, C and D Graded), Ladies (Graded), High School, Primary School and for our mature, yet still very skillful players, we have the Golden Oldies (oops, my mistake) I should have said Men's and Ladies' Masters (50 yrs and over).

Nomination forms are up on the notice board at the courts and nominations for all current Canowindra Squash Club members (must be double vaccinated) need to be in by Monday, November 8.

Please be aware when nominating for the Championships that you will need to be available for games played on Monday, November 15, Thursday, November 18 and all day Saturday, November 20 as we unfortunately cannot arrange games around other commitments.

We do hope that our Championships will be strongly contested as it is each year.

We are very excited and overwhelmed with the generosity of six local businesses who have become sponsors for the Squash Club this year.

A big thank you to Lawrence's IGA, David Bigg Accountancy, MJA Cattle Scan, Central West HydroVac Services, Canowindra Tyre Service and Montrose House.

Your generosity is very humbling and greatly appreciated.

The Squash Club held their AGM on Wednesday, October 20.

The 2022 committee remains the same as the 2021 committee with Mark Adams as Club President, Jamie Austin - Vice President, Kassie Wythes - Secretary, Kathy Schaefer - Treasurer, Amber Adams - Publicity Officer, Wendy Bowman - Club Captain and David Bigg - Club Auditor and Public Officer.

The committee is looking forward to 2022 with lots of exciting squash competitions throughout the year and hopefully fewer interruptions.

Finally I would like to remind all Canowindra locals that the squash club runs Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night competitions and a junior competition Monday afternoons during school terms.

The club is very welcoming and always likes to see new faces joining our competitions.

All grades and levels of abilities can be catered for so why not come and give it a go.

If you would like to know a bit more about how our competitions are run or further information regarding the Championships then please do not hesitate to contact Amber Adams on 0427 761 984 or Mark Adams (Club President) on 0427 592 891.

Stay safe everyone and we look forward to seeing you on the courts preparing for the Championships.
