HORSHAM MASTER SQUASH TOURNAMENT
GPHC was below its normal representation at the recent Master Squash tournament in the country town of Horsham. With the last scratching of Steve Cuff due to illness it was left to Chye Lim and Phill Warren to fly the GPHC flag. The weather beautiful (quite mild for Horsham only low 30's) and a very enjoyable weekend was had by all. Chye had the tough task of competing in section 1. Some very hard matches against quality players saw him triumph in his last match to win the consolation plate. Phill was much further down the rankings and after a first up win lost 2 very tight matches. A little beer & wine was consumed, some dancing ensued on Saturday night and good company all weekend.

When using the clubs facilities (gym, snooker, tennis & squash courts) it is a club requirement to have your membership card present. We wish to remind all members that the gym is only available for use by members. Membership cards are not to be transferred nor used by non-members in the gym. The club is currently undertaking spot checks to ensure members are carrying their membership cards, which has unfortunately been brought on as a result of a number of non-members using the clubs facilities.
