Squash

1st April 2013


Bula and welcome to the NSSC Squash page.

Like any other sports the whole aim of Squash is to prove that on a particular day you can beat someone else at that sport. The game of Squash has also been described as physical Chess and a statement that is true for the keen Squash player. At NSSC Squash courts, both statements are true only to a certain degree as Squash can be played at many levels of intensity. Regardless if you are playing purely for fun or trying to advance your name on the Squash ladder, the game of Squash promises a good aerobic workout and lots of perspiration. This is especially true with the tropical temperatures and humidity in Fiji. Squash is a highly enjoyable game and most of all an uncomplicated one. One of the many advantages of Squash for the beginner is that it is not difficult for most people to hit the ball against the wall and it is a racquet sport that you can practise on your own.

In the interest of the club, its facility, its members and to give every player a pleasant experience, there are rules governing the use of the courts. These rules are displayed on the notice board at the Squash courts and some of the information can be found on this page. We would appreciate if the rules are followed.


PLAYING TIMES

8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday to Saturday

8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays & Public Holidays.

Both courts are reserved for Club nights on Tuesday & Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.   Games are played on a round robin basis with the main aim of promoting interaction between members and the chance to play with as many members as possible.


COURT USAGE

Members do not have to pay for the use of the courts however to ensure that senior financial members are given priority for the use of the courts, court 1 (nearest the kitchen) has been assigned as the members' court.

1.       Court 1 is reserved for club members only.  If there is no senior member using the court, junior members and non members can use the  court on condition that they will have to leave the court when a senior member turns up for a game.

2.       Court 2 (entrance from outside) is available on a first come first serve basis.

3.       The occupation time for each session on either court will be a maximum of 40 minutes and applies to singles and doubles game. This is to allow other members the opportunity to use the courts.



BOOKINGS AND FEES

1. To secure a court for play, senior members can book court 1 by paying a court fee of $5.00 per session. Booking can be done up to seven days in advance through the club bar.

2.  Only 1 session (40 minutes) booking per member is allowed and no double booking will be allowed from 5pm onwards to allow other members to have the opportunity to play during the peak period from 5pm to 8pm daily.


CONCLUSION

To keep NSSC Squash playing members updated on the happenings in the Squash scene, notices on tournaments, events, forward planning for NSSC Squashing future will be posted on this web site.  My years of memorable experience with the game of Squash is this, it is a socially based exercise for those without too serious intent and for those who are more competitively inclined, it is a test of physical and mental capacity and most of all it is a sport that is hardly affected by adverse weather condition.

Please feel free to contact myself on mobile phone 9164786 or e-mail fretstick@hotmail.com  should you have any enquiries or a need for more information on squashing at NSSC.
