1st September is fast approaching  and so it is once again the time of yearwhen we ask our members to renew their subscriptions. The good news is that once again the rates for subscriptions will be the same as last year. All details are set out below and we hope you agree that at just over £2 per week for Full adult, and just under £3 per week for Family membership, the club remains excellent value for money.

In addition, because of the disruption and as a thank you to members for your understanding, Court fees will remain at the present reduced level for the rest of 2021. This will however be reviewed by your committee at the end of the year. As you know, the club is a non-profit making organisation run entirelyby (unpaid) volunteers. All monies received are used entirely for the
maintenance and running costs, and so we are entirely dependent on the
support of the membership to keep going. The aim of the committee remains
to provide good facilities to members at the lowest cost.


With this in mind, for all renewing members we ask for your help by
paying the renewal subscription by 1st September. The ability to book
courts will be disabled shortly after this date if subscriptions are
not received. Please be aware that whilst we will do our best to
reinstate disabled accounts for late payers with the minimum of delay,
this may take some time. In other words, you cannot rely upon late
payment being followed by immediate reconnection.

In case of any queries or difficulties please feel free to email
Steven at membership@harpendensquash.org.uk.

Kind regards,

Steven Fox - Membership Secretary

COVID 19 CLUB PROTOCOLS

5th April, 2021

Now that we are moving out of the Covid-19 lockdown your Club Committee, with guidance from England Squash and the Government, has given thought to the best practices that we would like all members to adopt for the foreseeable future. This will ensure that we continue to provide an environment where we reduce the risks of spreading the Coronavirus .

 

As every member will appreciate, we all play only because we want to and at our own risk. In these difficult times however, and in order to minimise the risks for all members, we would ask everyone to accept that by playing at the club at the current time you are agreeing to adhere to the following. If you don’t feel able to accept these protocols, then please don’t play! Also if you are concerned about playing, then please don’t play. However, if you are shielding or are considered to be in the vulnerable category, contact your committee to discuss playing during the day at specially selected times.

 

As everyone will know, the way the Club operates it is not possible to “police” compliance, but with goodwill, cooperation and common sense we can hopefully all begin to enjoy our sport again as safely as possible. The committee will not hesitate to take action if members do not adhere to the players’ agreement.

LOCKDOWN REFURBISHMENT

13th March 2021

We are pleased to announce that over the last year we have made a significant investment in the club facilities. Having only recently upgraded our changing rooms before the COVID 19 pandemic we now feel the club is in a much better state of repair.

New Carpet

We were able to acquire a vast quantity of new carpet tiles at a discount rate and so last summer we arranged for these to be installed. We are very happy with the results and once we are able to open the balcony up again we hope you will be able to notice the difference.

Court 3 Floor Replacement

Due to rain damage we were forced to replace the court 3 floor, while also installing a trench in the car park to prevent any further flooding. The supplier also identified some small adjustments to the floors on court 1 and 2.
