Court Availability section closed section open

Court Availability

Concern has been expressed recently regarding the availability of Courts for both Tennis and Squash and Racketball particularly at peak times.......

Members will wish to know that there are ongoing discussions between the Board, Club Committees, Management and the respective Coaching teams in this regard and which have already resulted in improved control of bookings for Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) and the Club’s teams.

 

The Club shares a vision with Sport England, the LTA and England Squash to not only grow but also retain participation in tennis, squash and racketball at all levels. The Board considers that the route to achieving this vision is by continuing to provide enhanced facilities and access to professional coaches thereby allowing the opportunity for any member of whatever playing ability to achieve their full potential in their chosen sport.

 

Members will know that the Club’s facilities have seen a substantial improvement over the last five years. These improvements have been largely as a result of the Club’s success in obtaining Grants from England Squash and Sport England. The Club has a continuing obligation under the terms of these Grants to promote and encourage participation in our sports particularly for children and ladies. The Academy and Apex coaching teams are pivotal in delivering excellent and varied programmes both for Members and the wider community which help the Club achieve compliance with the terms of the Grants.

 

Clearly a balance between coaching programmes and Members’ demands needs to be achieved. The Club currently has over 2,100 members - this is not always going to be an easy task. As a preliminary step the Board has agreed in principle to a 50:50 split of court availability across the five weekday evenings between Members and Coaches’ pre-booked blocked courts for courses. Similar arrangements will be applied to weekend daytime tennis and squash courts. Court bookings and utilisation will continue to be closely monitored and, if appropriate, further options will be considered.

'Car Park' Pete

Unfortunately Pete was knocked off his motorbike by a car whilst riding home from work on Wednesday evening.

He is suffering from several breaks and fractures, but thankfully there doesn't appear to be any serious head injury. I know that members will want to join me in wishing him a speedy recovery and I will keep you informed of his progress. In the meantime we shall try to find a temporary replacement for a couple of months.

The UK Racketball tournament is returning for its 2nd year to the Hallamshire.

Grades

It is important to remember that UK-Racketball Series events are designed to be inclusive. Although the A grade does attract the best racketball players in the country the events really are for players of all ages and abilities. We have never had a competitor who felt they were not good enough for an event when they took part.

A Grade – County, national or good club player
B Grade – Regular club player
Women’s – All ages and abilities, these events have a great range of players which makes for a fun and competitive day.
Over 40’s – For players over the age of 40
Over 50’s - For players over the age of 50
Over 60’s – For players over the age of 60
Beginner – This is for players who have recently started racketball. Players who have previously played squash to a high level and have now started playing racketball may be better off in the A or B grade. To maintain a fun atmosphere for this grade, only trophies will be awarded to the winners however there will also be a reduced entry fee of just £10.

If you are unsure which category to enter please feel free to contact Mark Fuller directly on 07846067505 or email us at info@uk-racketball.com and we will be happy to advise you.
