Robina Squash Club was formed in March 1990 and this month we’re proud to announce that the club has been in continuous operation for a massive 25 years!
In that the time the club started quite small and steadily grew in numbers, utilising all four glass backed courts provided by Bond University and participated in inter-club competitions across the Gold Coast.
Over the last decade, Robina Squash Club hasn’t competed in inter-club competitions and has instead focused on a more social orientated club format using the two glass backed squash courts, which has been an inviting and helpful place for players of all ages and skills.
I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved with the ongoing operation of the club such as Phil Touliatos, Mark Cawthan, Paula Kimlin and a raft of senior members past and present including Murray Robinson, Peter Barr, Tim Brown, Karen Chan, Julie Free, Jo Carsten and many others.
It is through the help and support of the members of Robina Squash Club that we’re able to keep operating with low overheads, offering a fun and friendly environment each week to get out on the squash court and hit the balls.
Onwards & upwards!
Robina Squash Club Autumn grand final was played on the 5th August 2014 with Team 2 and Team 3 playing off for the coveted title.
It came down down to the last match of the night with strangers playing table tennis stopping to watch. In the last match of the night, Tim beat Ryan for the last game 13 points to 12.
All matches, games and points counted Team 2 were victorious on the night winning 11 games (219 points) versus 9 games (214 points).
Congratulations to everyone for another great final!
Robina Squash Club summer competition grand final was played 25th March and it was a great set of matches. Once everyone had finished, Team 3 and Team 4 were even on matches, even on games games and it went to a count back on points. In the end Team 4 won the competition beating Team 3, 225 points versus 207 points – nothing in it!
The Autumn competition teams and draw are being worked on currently, we’re hoping to make five teams of five people. This will see the return of one team being on a bye each week – nice for everyone to have a break every little while. As soon as it’s complete, the draw will be distributed on our normal weekly email.
After having the Bond University squash courts out of action and in maintenance between 13/8/2013 and 9/9/2013, as of Tuesday 10 September they are available once more for Robina Squash Club to use.
The floors have been resurfaced and repainted, they’ve now got a nice shine to them. Unfortunately the front walls were not able to be repaired at the same time, it is apparently a different group of contractors that repair the walls. As such, we’ll have to deal with the inconsistency of the couple warn patches on the front wall a little longer, it’ll keep everyone on their toes!
Bond University are performing maintenance on both squash courts between 13/08/2013 to 9/09/2013 where they’ll be resurfacing the floors of both courts.
It wasn’t specified but I’m hopeful that the front wall of both courts will also be repaired at the same time as they are quite damaged, fingers crossed!
Nerang Squash Club are going to host our club for the four weeks the Robina squash courts are unavailable. Weekly rosters won’t change during this window, just the venue and we’ll send out the normal weekly email over this period outlining the playing roster as well.
