Squash Club membership for 2021/22

wanderers club Squash News, July 2021 3

Club membership is steadily making a recovery, despite the prevailing Covid 19 lockdown restrictions on court availability.

WELCOME to all new members who have joined in the last couple of months. I hope you have the opportunity to make the most of our wonderful courts and the fantastic facilities at the SPINNERS bar!

If you need assistance in booking courts or have any general questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  If you wish to be included in any of the WhatsApp groups to receive ongoing information on social events, league matches and general squash information, please send a WhatsApp message to Gary Plumstead (073 791 2851) and he will include you in the relevant group.

To all EXISTING MEMBERS who have renewed for the year, THANK YOU for your loyalty and commitment to making the club a success.  Without your ongoing support during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we would have been in danger of shutting down.

To those that haven’t renewed for 2021/22, please note that your card access to the courts will be blocked in August and your access to the court booking computer will be removed.
