Ryan is currently ranked 1 in Australia and 19 in the world, Cameron is ranked 2 in Australia and 35 in the world, and they have both competed around the world on the professional tour for a number of years as well as having won Commonwealth Games medals.

The program for the day includes:

Players from all clubs and of all ages/experience levels are invited to get involved in any of the events on the day. Pre-registration is required for free squash, coaching clinic and king of the court; to pre-register, just email info@scarboroughsquash.com.au. A small cost applies to the coaching clinic and king of the court – $5 each or $8 for both – coming along to watch is absolutely free.

Not only will there be great squash on display, there will be B105 Black Thunders for giveaways, inflatable courts for the kids, opportunities to buy squash merchandise and more!

If you have never played squash before and you are interested in seeing what it is about, this will be a perfect chance to come along and say hi.

It will be a fantastic day and an opportunity to see Australia’s top players in action, so put it in the calendars and we hope to see you there!

PCYC out and about at local events!

Have you seen some inflatable courts around the place recently???

Squash Australia and Brisbane City Squash have inflatable courts that are fantastic to use at festivals, shows and fetes for kids to have a go at squash and see what it’s about.

PCYC clubbies have been helping out over the last weeks with the inflatables at some local shows; both the Mueller College Fete and the Pine Rivers Show. It’s fantastic to see kids lining up to give squash a go, loving it and even coming back for seconds!

The shows were a huge success, and the inflatables proved a hit with the kids and kids-at-heart alike.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New court floors!

The Club was lucky enough to be successful in a grant from the Queensland Gambling Community Benefit Funds in 2018, for the purposes of two new court floors and upgrades to all the tins on all four courts.

CourtTech visited Redcliffe to install the floors, and a number of our clubbies helped out in a working bee in demolishing the old floors.

The new court floors mean the courts are safer and lighter, with no breakages in the floors, and will be long lasting! The new tins are also adjustable, meaning they can be set at the standard height of 19 inch, or the Professional Squash Association height of 17 inch, or very low for doubles at 13.5 inches (give that one a go!).

The Club is continuing to seek grants in order to fix the floors on the last two courts and look forward to when all the floors have been upgraded.
