Squash Tournament

Evening All,


I am going to be doing the draw for the club tournament at the end of the week. If you do not want to take part in this please let me know. The final will be taking place on Saturday July 6th.The draw will be posted on the squash noticeboard inside the clubhouse.

As a result there will be a hiatus with the leagues for the next couple of months. When they return I thought about giving http://www.squashmatch.com/ a trial run. All you need to do is register and add yourself to the Brondesbury League. It is all online and they even have an  iphone app. There is a cost of £5 each month but you can drop in and out of the league as you choose. The first month that we introduce it will be free.

The team are playing in the Middlesex Summer League and the first home game will be Thursday 23rd May. All the fixtures are up on the noticeboard. Come along and show your support at any of the home games!

All the best,





Squash Tournament & more


It has been a while since the last club tournament so let's start thinking about a date which suits everyone, or as many people as possible -


23rd March

24th March

30th March

31st March

6th April

7th April

13th April

14th April

It would start late afternoon and be followed by drinks and food in the clubhouse.

Let me know which date suits you best and I will go with the most popular. I will also put this up on the noticeboard for those that don't have/check their emails.

There is also a number of social events happening at the club


Wednesday 6th March -  Pie and Games night. There will be table tennis, card games, darts, and whatever other games are lying around the clubhouse. THe pies have been sourced by Carl whose reputation in the club is resting on the quality of these pies. 


Saturday 9th March - Racketball tournament (from 4pm) and Quiz night (from 7:30pm). The racketball tournament is as frienly or competitive as you want it to be. The quiz on the other hand will definitely be competitive. It follows the format of Pointless where the least popular answer is the one you are looking for. Teams are to be made up of no more than 6 people and it costs £2 per person. Contact Julia ([email protected]) with your team, places are going fast so don't hang about.


That's all for now,

Squash News

Evening All,

As meetings go last Friday was a fairly relaxed affair. In order not to interrupt the table tennis and ale drinking it was kept as brief as possible. A short summary of what was talked about -

There are currently about 70 members, unfortunately we don't have any  juniors but this is something which we are working on. Thanks to Steve for all that he has done for the club and for passing on all his know-how.  He can still be found on the court or at the bar a few times a week.

A local school  will be using the courts during off peak hours (once a week from 21st for a period of four weeks). This will be a bit of extra revenue for the club and it is also hoped it will introduce junior members. 

The tennis coaches have also expressed an interest in using the squash courts in cases of extreme weather. Again this would be off-peak and they would have to vacate the courts should squash members wish to play. An agreement is going to be put in place to ensure the courts are properly looked after.

It has come apparent that the current booking system is not fit for purpose. A number of online booking systems available and I hope to make a decision shortly. I intend to have this implemented in the next month  and will send out further communication in due course.

The courts  are probably due for a bit of TLC. I intend to get  quotes and see if the money is their for at least one of the courts. Carl also said he would research what is required to upgrade a squash court and see if we could do all, or some of it, ourselves in order to keep cost to a minimum. Any work will not be done until the summer months when the courts are a bit quieter.

The owners of this website have contacted me to see if we would be interested in using their site. It can be used to create a ranking system within a club or inter-club. It has only recently launched so don't let that put you off. It is free for the first six months so I see no harm in giving it a try.


Lastly, and most importantly, there was a lively debate about the general cleanliness of the courts (see what you are missing out on not coming down on a Friday). The lack of brush/mop is a major contributing factor in this. I will look into buying one and it will be everyone's responsibility to give the courts a quick once over if they are looking dirty before/after your match.

There is probably more but I'll save that for another day. If you remind me I will at least know you have read to the bottom of this email If anyone has any ideas or questions surrounding the above then feel free to get in touch.


All the best,


Adam Lennox





Squash Leagues

Hi Squash Members,

The new Squash Leagues for February are now up on the board. We now have 5 leagues up and would be happy to include any other members that wish to join in. It is the best way to meet up with fellow members and improve your squash at the same time.

Last month's league winners were Adam Tyson, Justin O'Dwyer, Ed Coventry in Leagues 1 - 3 respectively. No one played in League 4, so winners there then!

Please note that the flickering light problem is being looked at, and hopefully a solution will be found this week.

Enjoy the challenge and get playing your league games!
