Squash Club ‘better than ever’

Cayman’s hurricane damaged South Sound Squash Club is set to come storming back into action, and better than ever.

‘We now have a million dollar facility,’ says Kim R. Rough-Moses, one of the directors.

The improved facility is in line for its grand opening on Saturday, 3 September (11 am to 3pm) when Governor Mr. Bruce Dinwiddy is expected to hit the first ball as part of an opening ceremony beginning at noon.

Exhibition matches and free lessons will follow. The pro shop will be open and there will be complimentary hors-d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

‘The club was very badly damaged by Hurricane Ivan, but with the support of the members we have not only managed to rebuild but also to make a number of significant improvements which we are confident will attract many new members,’ says Kim.

The club now has air conditioning and more spacious and better equipped changing facilities, she says.

There are new wooden court floors and the courts are now coloured, she adds.

While the club has been out of action Cayman’s keen squash players have been grateful for the facilities afforded to them at King’s Sport Centre, says Kim.

The continued support of sponsors Appleby Spurling Hunter was also much appreciated, she adds.
