Gordano squash team secure promotion for the second time in two years.
GORDANO squash team have just secured promotion for the second time in two years, winning 19 of their last 20 league matches in the process.
Before Christmas, they finished champions of Division 3B winning all matches and gaining promotion.
In the spring season they finished as runners-up in Division 2B, narrowly losing their final game, to gain promotion to Division 1.
This is the highest level that the Gordano squash team has achieved in its history and the team have now generated enough new local interest to raise a second team for the first time in many years.
However, the club still require new players to further improve the league standard and social activity within the team, so if you are interested, please contact the club on the below numbers.
The club now operates a club night on Monday and Wednesday evenings (when league matches are not running).
They also now have an internet based ladder which can be found in ‘Free Online League’ named ‘Gordano Squash League’ and are currently developing a website as well.
Additionally to this, a number of players (one of whom is an ex-world ranked junior and ex-New Zealand national team member and coach) are offering free junior tuition /coaching and would like to hear from people who might be interested in this opportunity.
