Charity evening at Chesham Bois Lawn Tennis & Squash Club
We enjoy being involved in local events and were one of the sponsors of the squash exhibition charity evening at Chesham Bois Lawn Tennis & Squash club on Friday 3rd March 2017.
One of the charities supported was the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted which is also the charity we have chosen to support, as our charity of the year. It is a very worthwhile cause, close to our hearts and we were very happy to be involved. Two professional squash players James Willstrop and Mathieu Castanets who were ranked 11 and 13 in the world played a match against each other.
One of our directors Jenny Russell, who has recently started playing after a gap of many years, attended and hoped to pick up some tips! On one occasion the squash ball flew over the top of the wall into the audience but no one was hurt. The players joked with each other, the referee and the crowd as well as playing some fantastic squash and amazing shots. The players happily answered questions at the end and encouraged the youngsters to keep playing. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event.
