Congratulations to Broome Squash Club voted Best Club in the Broome 2019 Sports Awards

2019 Broome club of the YearThis year, the Broome Squash Club has been recognised for its commitment to the community and has taken out the coveted Broome Sports Award for Best Club for 2019. The club was overwhelmed by the award and grateful for the recognition for efforts to maximise the sports exposure in the community and at all times maintaining the ethos of the club – “sportsmanship is everything”. Bursting to capacity the club has 85 registered senior and 40 junior players. It’s hard to believe with only two courts, the club is able to provide enough court time to support the growing interest in the sport.
