Hi all members, By now you should all be back into the swing of things full of New Year promise to shake off Xmas excess and improve your game this year! Welcome to the new players that have joined both the male and female leagues. Please remember if you are new, you need to play at least one match in the first month to start and existing members must play once over any two month period to stay in the league... as we saw at the awards evening every point counts over the year so really try to fit in all your matches over the month! As per Johns mail this week why not come down to the open night this evening which has been blocked out for the club and courts are still available till the 31st to finish games in this last week of the Summer open. John will post the results on the notice board and then notify us of the knockout competition to see who goes into A or B league. Other news. Jarryd from Planet Fitness is moving on to a Platinum branch this month, we thank him for the support shown to the squash club and wish him well in his new role. Another change is the centre has a new Manageress, Cherine and we welcome her arrival and we have already had discussions about a possible interclub competition between Planet fitness sites.. watch out for this. At our own club, Kumi has taken up the role of Ambassador to assist communication and support, so please engage with Kumi and why not start with challenging him a game on the ladder.  No further nominations for Chairman, Club Secretary of Open Captain were received at year end, so if you're all happy the three current roles will remain with Frank, John and my self in those respective positions. That said, we welcome others coming forward to take up positions or where you have suggestions or like to be involved. In particular are looking for a female captain to drive the woman's league forward this year,  please contact John or myself if you think this could be you, (sorry Ben, a woman's position is really required for this!) Thanks to those that made their annual R50 deposit for the administration contribution at the end of last year. This once off amount covers the incidentals for awards and admin and if you still need to or wish to talk about sponsorship opportunities please send a mail to John or myself for info. Look out for our youth program that's taking shape, some more club challenge matches coming up and we wish you best of luck on the court. Regards. Mark McClue On behalf of the Squash club at Fourways Planet Fitness. P.s. Remember to warm up... "one is probably never quite as good as the last time you stepped off the court, but have all the potential to be better"
