Firstly, thank you to all of you who gave up an hour of your time to attend our online AGM on Monday evening. It is hugely appreciated and I hope you enjoyed hearing the updates given on the past year and the work done by the committee.
In order to open the Club safely, we have been analysing the advice from the government and the guidelines set by our governing body, England Squash, whilst also sharing best practice with other local clubs.

The Committee 23rd July 2020.
