Fall Down Classic – Nov 2-4
Did you hear? After the DAC successfully defended the Cross Border Trophy, it is apparently not impossible to win on their courts. An encouraging sign and an opportunity for everyone to take advantage of! I think we have them rattled, kind of like the movie “Predator”, where the legendary line was muttered from that famous actor… or governor… or cyborg… or adulterer… or whatever he is: “if it bleeds, we can kill it”. Are the Windsor players bleeding from our recent success against them? Or was it tears…?

The first tournament of the season is just around the corner. November 2-4. Windsor Squash Club is well known for their superb hospitality. Much like the DAC Classic, you will rarely see the bottom of your beer glass and there is always a friendly face to converse with. The squash is guaranteed to be competitive, and now that we have had had a taste of victory in Canada, it’s time to run with it.

There are many singles divisions to choose from. The D level is if you are a 2.9 level player or lower, the C is for 3.0 to 3.9, the B would be 4.0 – 4.9 and the A draw is 5.0 and up. You can enter 2 events if you wish, but be prepared for a lot of squash if you do. For the women, there’s an A and B draw, and for the older crew, there’s a 40+ and a 50+. Add on a junior division, and the place should be humming all weekend long. Oh – and the doubles. A, B and mixed. Fair warning though – the doubles is tough. The B level would be our A league level and more. Entry deadline is October 22. Don’t hesitate, just play!

Click on the above poster for all the details on how to enter – you can also let me know and I can pass it along. I plan to be there, so I hope many of you can join me. Get the experience, enjoy the weekend, meet new people, watch and play some great squash, drink some beer!
