New Year News re Courts
At last we are able to bring some good news about the squash courts.
The Squash Club Committee has approved expenditure to sand the floors and paint the walls (with squash court paint) of courts 2 and 3. This funding comes from club reserves built up during the past years.
This refurbishment will vastly improve the game quality for players as the floors and walls were becoming very slippery.
Court 4 is also scheduled to have a completely new floor fitted and walls painted as soon as possible during the coming Christmas / New Year period, but no firm date has been set yet.
All being well we will have four top quality courts to play on by the first week or two of 2010.
During the school holiday period (11th Dec – 3rd Jan incl) when the school is not using the courts during the day the courts can become extremely cold. Accordingly, during the holiday period, the court fan heaters will be switched on at 4.30 every day to warm the courts up before the usual start time of 5.30.
PLEASE NOTE: During the school holiday period the squash courts are available for booking ALL DAY weekdays and weekends, but unfortunately the heating will only come on at 4.30.
(This situation is being addressed and we hope to be able to come to a more satisfactory arrangement soon)
Squash Court Booking on the Internet
Martin Brewin and Simon Barker have been asked to review the various products and systems available for the Committee and we hope to be able to implement an internet/web-based court booking system early in the New Year. (For those who don’t have internet there will be a facility at the club to book courts as well).
