Courts Reopening

Dear Squash enthusiast;
I am delighted to announce that the squash courts in the newly renamed Lewsey Sports Park will open on 16thJanuary 2012.
The committee has decided to hire all 5 courts for the evening from 5pm until 9pm so that everyone in the club and the wider squash community in the area can come and have a look around and have a hit. There will be a bucket for contributions towards the cost, but there is no obligation to contribute. The idea is just a bit of a social squash evening to mark the re-opening.
Steve McCoy has kindly allowed the LDS teams to postpone their county fixtures that evening (ironically it would have been a derby match between the 1sts and 2nds), he has also stated that in other matches, if BOTH teams agree, then they can do likewise to allow others in the county to join us in what should be the premium squash facility in the County.
For those who are not existing members, feel free to join us, there will be membership forms available on the evening, as well as entry forms for the rescheduled Beds County Championships which will be held at the club in the new year.
Active Luton will also be there with an offer of some sort of "corporate" deal for membership of the gym facilities, but I am unclear at the moment what the details are.
There will be a formal relaunch of the club later, probably in April involving a squash legend, but for now it's important that we hit the ground running on day one and ensure people either begin, or return to playing on the site. Whilst there are currently 5 courts, one of those is multi-use and will be under threat if sufficient demand is not created, but conversely, if there is excess demand, there is the prospect of a 6th court being created.
On a purely personal note, it's been a tough few years. In fact it will be just two months short of three years since Riley's closed it's doors and since then the Committee and others such as England Squash and Racketball have worked tirelessly towards this day. Frankly, there have been many who didn't believe this day would ever come, thankfully sufficient people refused to give it up. However, it is now in every one of our hands, as a squash community, to make this site a success, I urge you to attend if you can, get active in the leagues and the ladder and make the site a success.
Let's make 2012 the year of squash in the County! Thanks for your support.
Feel free to forward this to ANY squash contacts you know.
