Squash news

Dear members,

Court maintenance:

Earlier this year I mentioned an intention to replace the front wall on court A owing to dead-spots caused by a damp problem that has now been resolved.  We will also carry out maintenance on court B at the same time.  This will take place on the week beginning 17th April.  Court A will be taken out of action Monday 17th and be available to book on Sunday 23rd.  Court B will be unavailable from Tuesday 18th April and be back in service on Saturday 22nd.

Court damage:

A few weeks back a player must have had quite an injury on court A and bled heavily on the floor and walls. Accidents happen and I hope they are okay.  The wood flooring is open grove and blood stains are hard to get out.  You may have noticed the dark patches that have been left by the cleaning of the blood.  If you or your opponent start to drip blood it is very important to get off the court as quickly as possible and stop the bleeding before resuming (if you are fit to continue).  It seems the person wiped the blood on the opposite wall as well.  Cleaning this up is time consuming and expensive (and unpleasant for others).  Please look after each other, and the courts.

Best wishes
