Another Successful GBI

GBI March 11.JPG

"The first Get Back Into session of 2011 finished on a competitive high with the end of course Tournament being won by Belinda Jones seen receiving her trophy from ES&R Level 1 coach Adrian John.  Belinda won a tough best of three final against Gloria Rodrigues 12:10, 12:10. 

This is the fifth time LDSRC have hosted a GBI squash course which gives the opportunity for new or returning squash players to try out the sport under the supervision of Licensed ES&R coaches and is hopefully a stepping stone towards full participation.  The next seven week course is due to start in May."

LDS regularly runs Get Back Into Squash programmes on behalf of Team Beds and Luton and has become one of it's most successful sports.

A Great Send off for Dave

Saturday morning's final junior coaching session of the season was tinged with emotion as Dave Merrell finally called time on a long and illustrious coaching career. Dave has been coaching first at Dunstable Squash club and latterly at the newly created Luton and Dunstable Squash and Rackets Club for the best part of two decades.

End of an era with final Get Back Into session

gbi_9_6_10.jpgThe final evening of the latest Get Back Into programme delivered by LDS on on behalf Team Beds and Luton was a bitter sweet occasion. Sweet for the victor of the tournament Jenny Sookraj pictured receiving her trophy and bitter as it was Dave Merrell, our senior coach's final Get Back Into programme before he retires. Dave has been central to the successful partnership developed over the last 15 months during which time the club has delivered 5 very popular programmes in varying locations in fact it was he who queried, why squash hadn't been included when he saw an advert for the popular adult sport participation project. Dave still has a few more weeks of coaching juniors to go before he puts away his cones and markers for good, but this was definitely the end of an era.
