CONSIDERING SENIOR SQUASH LEAGUE
Each year we enter Senior Squash League Teams in the Leinster Squash Leagues Competition. Sutton pride themselves in the fact that we have committed and strong league teams and featured for many years in the winning circle.
Covid played a part in a fall off but we hope to return to our strength and plan to enter teams in the League for September/October.
Men's Teams are made up of 5 players and Ladies 4 players. It is a great opportunity to compete as a team in such an individual sport. Matches are Home and Away throughout Leinster and run until approximately March/April and it is followed by Cup Competition, which is a knockout system.
It is important to get commitments from players who will make themselves available for the matches each week both home and away. There are many divisions of different standards from Premier to Division 6.
I will be sending out an email soon to gauge interest and I hope we get lots. Keep an eye out and if you have any questions drop in and chat to me.
