Club nurtures talent
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.
