Team Squash 2016/17

Dave North - Tue 09 Aug 2016

It is the time of year when we need to think about next season and team selection. Northern has entered the same number of teams as last season into the Northumbria County Leagues ie 6 Men's teams and 3 Ladies teams (plus 2 Junior teams).

If you wish to be considered as a regular for the teams, please email me ( by 27th August. Regular means you can commit to playing most of your team's matches through the season from September to April. This potentially means a match every week (home or away).

A selection meeting (involving team captains) will take place after this date to decide teams and playing orders.

Ladies - Please also note the following extract from May 2015 Committee meeting minutes: "The policy agreed by the Committee is that a Female Player may be nominated to play for a Ladies’ team and also be nominated as a stand in for either a junior team (if eligible) or a Men’s team. A female may not be nominated solely to play for a Men’s team as a regular player and also play for the Ladies teams." This policy was re-confirmed in a recent Committee meeting. A stand-in is a reserve ie can be asked to play if a regular player is unavailable.

More information about team squash, and what it involves, can be found on Northern Squash (wazygoose) website.

Please contact me if you have any queries.

Thank you

Dave North
