Season almost under way
Players get prepared for squash
SQUASH: Heading into their second season of the year, Mundubbera squash players are taking to the courts in preparation for the season ahead.
With the club captain away, squash players ensured that was no excuse and showed up to training on Tuesday night to battle it out.
Last season 34 members signed up to the club.
This season so far has reached 30 members, though not everyone shows up for training at the same time.
Mundubbera squash player Nick Frahm is in his fifth year with the club and said he absolutely loved the game.
“My mate at work was really into it and I moved from a different town and decided it was a great opportunity to meet a few people,” Frahm said.
“I started at the bottom line and now I’m on the top line which is really good.”
The season finished on a high with Trevor Harvey’s team taking out the big win.
“It was a strong competition, we had 36 players in the competition and our next one starts on July 25,” Frahm said.
“The thing I love about squash is it’s a great way of getting your fitness levels up and co-ordination and even helps with training for other sports.
“Like touch football or rugby league, these sports you need to know how to sprint and in squash you learn all of that.”
The club is doing well with members but squash player Jeff Balnaves would love to see more sign up.
“It’s a great game of squash we have in Mundubbera, it’s open to anyone and we’d love to see more members sign up,” Balnaves said.
“It’s better for the clubs and better for the courts if we have more players.”
The start of the competition season starts on July 25 at 6pm.
