Dou­ble cel­e­bra­tion

SQUASH

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

A NEW sea­son at Wy­combe Squash & Rack­et­ball Club was kicked off by Wy­combe MP Steve Baker (pic­tured) cel­e­brat­ing both the com­mis­sion­ing of ma­jor im­prove­ments and the open­ing day of Women’s Squash Week.

The im­prove­ments will, some­what ap­pro­pri­ately, com­prise a com­pletely re­fit­ted and up­dated ladies’ chang­ing room, as well as the re­in­state­ment of all court walls up to na­tional com­pet­i­tive stan­dards and a new boiler.

They were made pos­si­ble by a £58,000 grant from Sports Eng­land Inspired Fa­cil­i­ties Fund and in­vest­ment from the club.

Mr Baker praised the club’s ini­tia­tives in im­prov­ing the fa­cil­i­ties to en­cour­age more girls and women to play squash and rack­et­ball and, af­ter the of­fi­cial open­ing, there was an open af­ter­noon for fe­male mem­bers and guests to sam­ple the up­graded fa­cil­i­ties.

The new fa­cil­i­ties will also pro­vide the po­ten­tial to at­tract more na­tional events, such as the Wy­combe round of the Na­tional Rack­et­ball Se­ries, which will be held in Novem­ber.
