TRI RACQUETS SUMMER CAMPS

We have three weeks of tri racquet camps this summer. Weeks two and three in particular are filling up very quickly, so enter now to make sure your child gets in, as both weeks are over half way full. Our tri racquet camps are for kids ages 8-14 and include 1.5 hours each day in each of our three racquet sports of squash, badminton and tennis. Participants also spend an hour in the pool and get to pick their lunch from a menu each morning. We also have a special member price for all of our members. For more information or to register, visit us on our website 

Congratulations to all of our WWC members who competed at the recent Canadian Squash Championships in Toronto. Evan Mancer lost in the final of the men's 45+ division, after winning it last year. Andrew Thiessen won the men's A consolation final. And Hannah Blatt finished in 5th place in the women's open division. Hunter Kristjansson and Tom Brown also competed this year in Toronto.

STARTER SQUASH

This Sunday, May 12th from 1:15-2:15 pm is our next complimentary starter squash class. Our starter squash takes you through everything you need to get started playing fun recreational club squash. We have all the equipment you will need including racquets and glasses. If you are interested in registering for the class, please contact Trevor by Saturday May 11th at 2pm.

SPRING PROGRAMS

Even though our junior spring session has begun it's never too late for your child to give squash a try. If they are interested in trying out one of our squash groups this spring, please contact Trevor to see which group would be best suited for your child.

Our junior munchkin group and pee wee group for 4-8 year olds is running during our spring session on Saturdays from 11:50-12:30pm. If your little one would like to give it a try, we have the racquets and glasses they can use. We use a variety of junior learning balls for the kids to get started. If you have any questions, or would like to sign up your child for this or any of our junior programs, please contact Trevor or at ext 105
