A refurbished court 2 gets christened

Local squash players are queuing up to try a new court after the refurbishment of court 2 at Nunholm Squash Club.

Sue Strachan (Squash Section chairman) ‘declared it open’ by hitting the first ball on the new powder blue court on Sunday. The court was inaugurated by a “friendly” game of doubles with other committee members Keith Martin, Peter Allen and Mike Service.

During the season 2007-8 courts 3 and 4 have also undergone some refurbishment but court 2 has been completely redone with a new floor and plasterwork and a new pastel paint job.

We have to thank the Management Committee of Dumfries Sports Club for showing their continuing commitment to the squash section by putting up the majority of the finance required to redo the court. It looks great and it plays well too! I just hope that members will remember to wear clean shoes with non marking soles so we can keep it that way as long as possible!” commented Sue.
