Hall of Fame

The fourth Hall of Fame night was held at Mosman Park Golf Club on Wednesday the 24th of November 2021. Over 130 guests attended to witness the two newest inductees, with a slight difference this year. The first inductee was the 1956 Men’s State Team, which are the first and only team ever to win the Australian Teams Title. The four members of that team are Ross George, Dawson Hamilton, Clark Johnson and John Freedman. The night was extra special as John (90 years of age) accepted this honour on behalf of his team. The second inductee was Sue Hillier, due to her outstanding squash career reaching a national ranking of six and representing WA in three winning state teams as well as her two World Masters Titles and numerous Australians Master’s Titles.

Over the course of the clinic, the juniors will be coached on basic squash shots and movements patterns as well as playing team-building activities and mini squash competitions.

To attend the clinic, juniors must be aged 9-15 and be able to serve. Registrations are made over SportyHQ at the link: 2022 Junior Squash Clinic – SportyHQ.
