Fall League & Programs
Fall league has started up, and it was great to see everyone competing again Wednesday night and enjoying themselves! Fall league is great for getting into shape and connecting again with the Edmonton squash community. If you weren’t lucky enough to snag a spot in the Fall league though, we have a number of other programs running to kick the squash season off. Quite a few of the programs have filled up or are filling up so make sure you sign up before you miss out. These include:
Some of our new squash season products have arrived. We have many Black Knight, Tecnifibre & Harrow racquets in stock and soon our Salming racquets and shoes will be arriving. Yes, squash shoes!!! Ask the front desk if you want to try or order any of our products.
We are working very hard to make sure we fill as many teams as possible for the upcoming Interclub season. If you’re a team looking to fill a few spots or if you’re a “free agent” and looking for a team please let us know.

If you need any assistance for anything club related, please contact Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ibrahim at email@example.com. The club will be operating normally with staff on hand in the evening.
