Bega Squash entries maxed out at 96

The Grand Hotel Bega Squash autumn competition starts Tuesday (tonight) at the Bega Courts from 6.30pm. 

The club said there had been a remarkable number of entries for the draw with 96 players set to contest the series over the next 10 weeks. 

Organiser Chris Bartlett said he was thrilled with the response and thanked players who had signed on as reserves for the season. 

“We’re stoked with the number of entries,” Mr Bartlett said. 

“It’s the first time in four years that I’ve been grading that we haven’t had to chase anyone, we’ve got a full 96 player draw.”

He said the club would have boasted two extra teams, but unfortunately some entries came in too late to include. 

However, the club is welcoming a number of those late entries to stay on as reserves for the competition. 

Mr Bartlett said he was excited for the return of squash and invited anyone to come along and cheer on teams at the courts. 

“The more the merrier,” he said. 

All competition fees are due weeks one and include a membership fee of $20 and the $65 entry for the competition. 

The full team roster is available at the Bega District News Website.
