Sunshine Coast Grassroots Trip

Harrison Watson, Liam Watson, Jared Smith, Aiden Woolliams, Jack Ni, Jordan Dunk, and Marley Mural headed off to North Vancouver’s Evergreen Squash Club for a fun filled day of squash led by Evergreen’s Alicia Haneine and Sunshine’s Murray Smith.  Nanaimo Squash Club also sent some of their grassroots juniors as well.  The juniors all had equal court time and were matched with players of similar ability.  The emphasis was on learning, fun, and making new friends.  For the Sunshine kids, this was their first time in a real squash club and their first squash road trip.

There was lots of great food and prizes, with everyone coming away with something – from grips to bags to racquets!  The kids all had a great day and hope to pair up again with their new Evergreen and Nanaimo friends in April.

Many thanks to the 2020 Fund bursary for assisting with expenses.
