CHAIRMAN'S NOTICE

Racketball

We will be looking to introduce Racketball leagues within the club from September. I will be posting a notice on the boards inviting you to join in. I have been playing more Racketball in recent months, along with many others who are not current club members, on a regular basis. I find it a very enjoyable game, easy to play and gives an excellent workout. I will be encouraging those I play with to join the club and take part in the leagues.

If you can play Squash, you can play Racketball.

Some of you already support our Racketball competition, I hope you will support the Racketball leagues and others will join in also. Please enter your name on the notice or email with your wish to join in the leagues. Even if you haven’t played it before, give it a go. I have spare rackets & balls if you want to try it out. Follow this link for a short video on the game.

More information on Racketball can be found on the
 England Squash & Racketball web site

PLEASE GIVE THE RACKETBALL LEAGUES YOUR SUPPORT.
