We are looking for new players to join Dean’s racketball team that play in the friendly summer league against various clubs in and around Edinburgh.
The league runs between April and August with matches roughly every fortnight! Racketball is very similar to squash and just as fun! No experience is necessary and all abilities catered for! We also have spare rackets you can use.
Thanks all who took part in the Funday Sunday tennis tournament, squash friendlies and racquetball (more to follow about that in a separate post)! We had great weather and a wonderful BBQ; many thanks to Carl, Amanda, Bram, Nynke and others for supplying food and BBQ!
The winners of the tennis tournament were: Philippa McPherson & Carl Tweedie!

To celebrate the start of the squash season and the completion of the tennis season, we are having a squash & tennis Fun Day at the Dean Club. Join the club for an afternoon of squash, tennis and BBQ from 2pm!
Squash: We will be running a handicap squash tournament and racquetball taster sessions.
Tennis: We will be running a tennis tournament where you play with different partners every 15 minutes to try and win the most number of games: we will have prizes! This tournament is fun for all levels of tennis, and because you keep swapping partners you will play a wide range of people and abilities. So whether you are a complete beginner or play regularly, come play the mini tournament!
We would be grateful if you could sign up to the event so we know roughly how much BBQ food to provide, and how many will take part in the day’s events! Please send any questions to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I am about to put the 2014 Racketball Championship on Notice Board, it will be the same arrangement as last year, all play each other in one league, best of 5 game, American Scoring, the winner is whoever got the most points. this will start from May to August, this give you all plenty of times to play in about 4 month than last year!

We’ve discussed the results of the survey for the relaunch of club night and decided the following…
Club night will be from 7.40-9.00pm on a Monday night. The initial format for club night is going to be flexible until we find out how many people turn up. We will start by sticking to traditional scoring, unless there are large numbers and the matches will be best of 2 games. The format for launch night on Monday the 24th of March 2014 will be (roughly):
6.20pm Warm up hosted by Amanda
7.00pm Club night will start
8.20pm Pizza and nibbles
8.45pm Wine tasting hosted by Richard Maspero (subject to interest)
Hopefully this will give people the flexibility to come along some time between 6.20 and 7 then play squash for an hour before having a nice social get together upstairs in the function room.
We’ll have to request a small fee for the relaunch night if people intend to stay for food and drinks but there will be no charge for the squash. If people could email Sarah and Richard to let them know if they intend to stay on for pizza and wine so we can get numbers, that would be great. Any questions, please contact Matthew.
The finals day we take place this Saturday (22nd March) from 4pm and will include juniors, handicap, ladies and men’s finals. All members are encouraged to come along to enjoy the squash and party. There will be drinks and nibbles throughout and prize giving will take place from 6pm.
We hope to see you there on Saturday!
