2) In the meantime, Tim Vail (Hampshire lead coach)  will be running 2 sessions on zoom to focus on movement and squash fitness - these will be on Thursday 1st April at 4.30 pm and Saturday 10th April at 10.30 am. Please watch out on Facebook to sign up. These will be FREE and on first come first served. If there is enough demand we could run more sessions as required.
3) County closed - Dates to be confirmed following release of the England Squash calendar but this will go ahead and we hope to run the usual format at Winchester Rackets and Fitness as planned prior to lockdown.
4) Regional closed - This will not run this year with the focus being on return to play and participation

We are also, for the first time, recruiting a Junior member to the junior committee. See social media and advert for more details.
