The popular Junior Squash and Racketball Club night has restarted at Nunholm Squash Club and takes place on Sunday nights between 7pm and 9pm.

The club has been lucky enough to have had a good crop of juniors coming through over the last few years with some being ranked at national level.

Nunholm has the current Dumfries and Galloway Schools Squash Champion Iain Anderson and the runner-up Douglas Brotherston leading the new crop of juniors.

There are also a number of younger players who now have a few seasons under their belt and they can only improve on their skills and technique as they are now physically stronger.

The junior club night is aimed at 12-18 year olds but organiser Raymond Currie said: “The club night is as much about our juniors using and enjoying the facilities the sports club has to offer.”

He added: “When they juniors are not on court they get to play free pool or watch Sky Sports TV and they will also get free refreshments.”

The club is fortunate again to have Jordan Currie, a qualified Scottish squash level one coach on hand again to help out at the club nights until the end of the year.

Jordan himself has come through the junior ranks at Nunholm and is keen to see more juniors try out squash and racketball.

The cost of the two-hour session is £2 but is free for the first night for any potential new member and rackets and eye protection is provided.
