19th JULY 2021
AFTER COVID RESTRICTIONS WERE LIFTED
BOTH COURTS ARE AVAILABLE AGAIN WITH NO RESTRICTIONS ON WAYS TO PLAY AND NUMBERS ON COURT.
THE COMMITTEE WILL RECONVENE SHORTLY TO TRY AND RELAUNCH SQUASH AT THE CENTRE.
WITH THE CENTRE MANAGEMENT FIXING THE NEW CLOSING TIME to MON-FRI AT 9.15pm
WE CAN NO LONGER FEASABLY HOST, AFTER 50 YEARS CONTINUOUS PARTICIPATION IN the ESSEX COUNTY LEAGUES.
we are hopeful of relocating at least 1 team to a nearby more welcoming club!
ANCIENT BOILERS HAVE FINALLY BROKEN DOWN COMPLETELY
So NO showers available till SEPTEMBER 2021 at the earliest!
this is a major and very costly issue (rumour is, it wil cost a 6 figure sum to put right)
We believe the management hoped that the boilers would last until the centre finally closes in a few years time.

SPRINGHEALTH LEISURE CENTRE CLOSES SUDDENLY
The club based in Chelmsford was closed on the 24th january, when administrators where called in, the company which had venues also in Hampstead, & Heathrow, faced mounting debts. This has meant the loss of 4 squash courts, the courts were quite dilapidated, but nontheless, the county can ill afford to lose any at all.
