Thanks to all
Club president Hannah Grimmett and club captain squash Terama Winterburn would both like to thank our current members for their efforts and support to the squash fraternity this season, and welcome to our newest members Tony and Erica Hamer, Wi Patene with a welcome back to Hayden Rasmussen. It was also great to see Peter Bevan pop in for a watch and a drink with us.

Terama and Hannah say they will be quietly chipping away at developing our calendar of events and tournaments for next season 2022.
