  • Hitting The Nick Make or Break Time – a special meeting is to be held on Saturday 15 July at Coventry Squash Club (11.00 am until 3.00 pm) to discuss the role of the County Associations. It is time to formalise a representative body of the County Associations and to discuss the implications for CAN and the other communication systems made up of CA representatives. All interested parties will be represented – the County Associations, including members of the National Forum; a CA representative who is also a member of the ES Board, and staff of England Squash have been invited, although unfortunately Keir Worth is on annual leave. Two of the CA representatives are also Officers of England Squash Masters, which formalised its independent status at its AGM last month. So please come along and have your say, please email Mike Clemson confirming your intentions and any comments are gratefully received. [22/06/2017]
