Congratulations to the Bunbury/Leschenault teams winning the Ladies and Mens A Grade Country Week event over the weekend.  48 teams played at Squashworld Mirrabooka with divisions down to F Grade.

Congratulations to all divisions winners.  It was great to see so many players at the event ranging from 12 years to (lets just say) very mature people.  Great sportsmanship, camaraderie and plenty of smiles from a fun weekend playing the Worlds Healthiest Sport.
