The Rarotonga Squash Club is gearing up to finally move to their new home at the Telecom Sports Arena which includes two glass-backed squash courts.
Squash club president Grant Priest says they are pleased to be moving to the world class squash courts at the TSA built for the Pacific Mini Games in 2009.
“We are excited to be moving to this beautiful facility that is as good as any in the region,” says Priest.
He explains that the delay in moving to the TSA has been in the government tender process but now that has been finalised – he expects the club will be up and running at the multi sports stadium by May.
However, he anticipates the move will cost the club around $10,000 as they plan to set up a store to provide club members with squash equipment and refreshments which will generate revenue for the club.
For the past 20 years squash players have played their games at the two squash racquet courts behind the St Joseph’s Cathedral.
Priest says the Catholic community have been patient and wonderful landlords.
To help cover the cost of the club moving to the TSA, a golf Ambrose fundraiser will be held this Friday at the golf club and teams wanting to take part in this fun tournament can contact Marie Priest on 23677 or Heimata Karika on 26710.
