Squash at SSC continues to be a sport which is not very well patronized by our members. Our efforts in hiring out the courts during off peak hours has not been successful due to many of the coaches wanting to use the courts during our peak hours and also because the club has been reluctant in depriving its members the use of the courts during peak hours.
We have had several discussions with former national champions and coaches and we have not been able to arrive at a win win situation for both parties.
The club continues to hire two markers for the squash section. We should seriously review this position if the revenue does not improve. Even though the loss is less from last year it continues to drain the resources of the club.
We planning to conduct the SSC Open Squash Tournament at the end of November this year. We shall endeavour to have this tournament this year as it is a popular tournament in the squash calendar.
Every effort will be made to make this sport profitable as well but the constraints are many.
