Squash rackets from the Pro Shop
Many of you may have seen my newsletter a while ago regarding the small Pro Shop that the Club has set up in conjunction with Tecnifibre, who are the number 1 brand in squash.
If you are looking for a new racket or would just like to try out something different to see if it helps your game, all six demo rackets will be available at club night on Thursday 20 June, so feel free to sign up and come along.
Also, we are now able to offer the rackets at 15% off the recommended selling price, so there are great deals to be had!
Remember, that we have tennis rackets available too, as well as a full range of accessories such as balls, grips, etc. Pop into the clubhouse for more information.

Squash Court building plan
Members, in particular from Squash and Racketball, will be pleased to know that some decisions have been made regarding the condition of the Squash court building and the required development works.
After several months of obtaining advice and reports, an action plan is now being put together for the next few months in order to bring the building up to date.
I’ll provide a full update in due course, but for now I can say that the first part of the project in June will be to replace the old tube lighting with new LED fittings – better quality light with the added benefit of energy efficiency and reliability!

Defibrillator
The Club invested in a defibrillator a couple of years ago, and we were reminded in a recent risk assessment that members should know how to locate and use it. The defibrillator is sited just inside the squash court entrance on the wall is a bright orange carry case.
When switched on the device will give full instructions. However, the following short video provides more information on the unit we have on site:

For the first time in several years, the Club entered teams into the Summer Kent Tennis leagues. Boys Under 16, 14, 12, 10 and 9, plus a Girls Under 16. This will be great experience for our juniors to play some competitive tennis.
The Girls team recorded the first victory for one of our teams against Parklangley. After the two singles rubbers the score was tied at 1-1, making the deciding doubles rubber crucial. Sydenham won the first set comfortably, but Parklangley fought back in the second taking it to a tiebreak, with Lois and Morgan eventually winning it 7-5.
