An Extraordinary General Meeting (E.G.M.) of the Munster Squash Committee was held recently in Highfield and resulted in the election of a new executive committee enabling the activities of the association for the coming season.
Players were in attendance from Glenville, Highfield, Silversprings and Sunday’s Well while Celtic, Ennis, Gleneagle, Limerick and Thurles attended ‘remotely’ via conference call.
Eugene Walker (Celtic) was unanimously elected as new President of Munster Squash, his club-mate Conor O’Neill was returned as Secretary and Mark Furlong agreed to join with Cathal Lynch as vice-captain supporting Munster Captain, Martin McDonnell.
There are still vacancies on the committee notably a junior secretary and a masters secretary but all other positions have been filled. You can read up on the Munster Squash Committee 17-18 here.
We have edited our list of Qualified Coaches to include only those with up-to-date information. If you are a qualified coach and wish to be added back to this list please contact us and we will advise regarding current requirements.
As advised earlier in the season, league players need to ‘have a go’ at answering a quiz on the rules of the game before the end of the season. Results are confidential and the clubs are advised as to how many of their team players attempted the quiz and how many managed to ‘pass’. Read more information here.
Our sympathy goes to the family and friends of Maureen Clarke who has passed away. Maureen played for many years in the Cork County Cricket Club and more recently in The Orchard Squash club. She was a talented squash player who was always very helpful to others who took up the sport. Maureen will be missed by all of her many friends both within and outside the sport.
