This has been a busy year for Kelvin squash with some excellent results.
It is the first time that our club has won a ladies division! Congratulations to Shirley Whitmore, Kim Euston-Brown, Margie Hunt-Kemp, Di Webberley and Emma Dawson who won the second league.
Well done also to the Ladies 5th league who finished second.

An enjoyable year end dinner was held in the Cream Lounge.
The inter-prov doubles were held in Durban and Kim, Vince, Karin Louis-Pickard and Mike Richardson represented us.
We are delighted with the increase in squash membership – particularly younger members, and this is due, in no small measure, to our squash chairlady, Athlee McLear.
We look forward to next year and summer league which begins at the end of January.
Keep enjoying your squash.
