Club nur­tures talent

Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

Trevor Har­vey In­ter-club Ashes tour­na­ments are played be­tween Mun­dub­bera, Gayn­dah and Stafford an­nu­ally.

IF you want to hit a lit­tle ball against a wall as hard as you can, maybe squash is the game for you.

“There is noth­ing soft about play­ing this game, ex­cept for the ball,” Gayn­dah’s Andrew Goldie said.

“I’m ham­mered af­ter a game on the court and I feel fan­tas­tic for it.

“I am 100% com­mit­ted to my fit­ness and I find squash is a fan­tas­tic way of achiev­ing what I want.

“It is not only a way for me to get ac­tive, it is just so much fun.”

The Mun­dub­bera Squash Club has six teams of five play­ers each who play on Tues­day nights at 6pm, or at any time that might suit the op­po­nents that week.

Top 16-ranked-World Masters and No.3-ranked Aus­tralian Masters mem­ber and player Trevor Har­vey said “over the past 10 years we have pro­duced many young cham­pi­ons through this club”.

“Play­ers who have gone on to rep­re­sent the North Bur­nett, Wide Bay and Dar­ling Downs have started play­ing right here in Mun­dub­bera.

“In­ter-club Ashes tour­na­ments are played be­tween Mun­dub­bera, Gayn­dah and Stafford an­nu­ally.”

All teams are ranked from one to six and the mem­bers play cor­re­spond­ingly ranked play­ers.

Play­ers also have hand­i­caps so when they do step up a grade they are com­pet­i­tive.

The squash courts are on Bunce St.
