Benalla Ensign

Holiday play


After yet another disruption to our playing season, the squash competitio­n is back on in Benalla.

The Benalla Squash Club has changed the tradition of not playing during the school holidays in order to give some of the rounds back to the players.

Also due to capacity restrictio­ns it has set two separate playing times during the night to accommodat­e the rules and the players.

So, last week round six got under way and in this second week of the school holidays, round seven will be played.
