Car damaged in the car park

Dear Knutsford Sports Club Member,

Between 8 and 9.50pm last night (Thursday 20 August 2015) my car was damaged in the Sports Club car park.

It was parked in a central bay right in front of the squash courts. It was broadly underneath the CCTV camera, which is being investigated.

However, I would much prefer to receive any information voluntarily.

All 4 disciplines were active at the time (Archery, Cricket, Squash, Tennis).

Did you see anything?

Do you know anything?

Did you perhaps notice some damage to your own vehicle this morning, and would be prepared to contact me voluntarily?

No note was left.

Please contact me if you can help. It is a new vehicle, sensibly parked, and I am concerned to resolve this.

Thank you,

Andy Ford (squash)

Summer Cup 2015

Congratulations go to Graham Woods as he proudly accepts the highly coveted ‘Summer Cup Trophy’ from Squash Chairman Geoff Dalton. His ‘Pretenders’ team were runaway winners of the 2015 event, beating the likes of ‘Whitty’s Wonders’, ‘Waifs and Strays’, ‘HC Hasbeens’ and ‘Dalton’s Ironmen’. Packed with youth, Graham’s successful Team is a result of his dedication and commitment over the years in running the Saturday morning Junior Squash Sessions. 

This popular yearly competition took place over several evenings during July and August. Whilst all who played enjoyed the social aspect of the competition, it still retains a competitive edge. All are welcome to take part, and it’s a great way for newer members to meet other players. Each player competes in a handicapped match consisting of three games. Afterwards the teams gather in the Bar for a Beer and Pizza. Any profit made is donated to Charity. Thanks to Guy Hill for once again organising the event.
