Katanning Squash Club in Regional WA gets an upgrade

KCC

After approx 2 years of persistence, local support and an ingenious initiative, the Katanning Country Club finally got their 4 x front walls, 4 x tins and 4 x sports floors….and a new paint job also.

(The ingenious initiative – KCC SQUASH MEMBERS were donated a plot of land outside of town, members gave their time, grew crops, sold the crops…money in the bank. Their income has increased 10 fold.) INGENIOUS.

Thanks to all the members (especially Ryan McGrath and Garry Wolfe but also Steve the painter, George from Cape Town, David Staid) for their help with unloading and moving product into the building.

KCC have now renovated their squash courts, tennis courts and works continue to install a new bowls green….the venue is improving weekly……also, they have one of the best green golf courses in the region due to water recycling capabilities.

Have been informed the renovations have sparked renewed interest and squashies have come out of the wood work to play again. Great news for the club….especially after their very recent fire threat.

We totally enjoyed our time in Katanning……its known as a SuperTown…..maybe a tournament is on the cards soon??!?!

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.
