Wanaka Squash Club Newsletter August 2016

Ladies Coaching:  NO coaching this Sunday night or for the next few weeks. This has been going well but will take a break, and will resume later in the season if there is still good interest.

Table Tennis: 3 people have paid to use the table tennis table on occasion for the next few months. They will avoid busy squash times. Be friendly and say hello. It will be very important for our fundraising for a new building that we are more than just a squash club, so we are keen to promote this sort of other activity.

Nick Mita is taking coaching sessions all afternoon and evening on Thursday 11th August. He is a top level NZ coach and these sessions are now all booked up. However he will hopefully be coming back every 6 weeks, so if you are interested to see what it’s all about and put your name down for next time- come down and watch and be part of it. Guaranteed you will learn a lot just watching.

Wanaka Squash Club Shirts/Hoodies etc:  Some very smart gear has been designed and we are now taking orders. Contact Pip for more info 0274331580

Business House will start on Wednesday nights after top club finishes, probably starting Wed  17th August. Anyone can play but there is an emphasis on introducing people to squash, and on the social aspect. The bar will be open and staffed. May still be room for an extra team or two if you want to put in a team of work mates or non work mates who want to try it out.  Contact Jeff Limmer 0274977476

Next Club League: Next round of club league games will start Mon 22nd/Tues 23rd Aug. Put your name down on the board in the hall in the club, or text Keith 0210695884.  This will be best of five games, same format as current league though likely to be teams of 5, but only 4 to play each night so there is always one reserve, as reserves have been hard to find lately.   If you don’t want to commit to every week, then put your name down as ‘reserve’.

Congratulations to Mens D team and Womens C team who have qualified for the Nationals.

Online booking system- we are hoping to bring this to you shortly, the old book will then disappear and you will need a cell phone or computer to make a booking.

Club Championships: Will be week of 12-17 September. We encourage everyone in the club to enter- the draw will be in blocks of 8 according to grade so everyone can be a winner, and everyone gets three games. Most games during the weekday evenings, with finals night at the end of the week. Put your name on the board in the hall.

Bar:  Reminder, please use your eftpos card rather than cash for the bar, we are trying to eliminate cash handling for security reasons.  It takes a few extra seconds but it is worth it.

Lost Property:  This piles up amazingly fast. There is a big cardboard box with lost property in it, this will go to Wastebusters at the end of every month, so check it for gear you may not even know you have lost (especially if you have kids!)
