We’re pleased to bring you an update on the Christchurch Squash Club funding story from 8th August. Funding support has been secured and ground was officially broken on Friday 5th October for the Don Preston Squash Centre.
Mike Beresford, who has been instrumental to the project is particularly excited about the build getting underway after over two and a half years of careful planning and fund-raising and he acknowledges the Canterbury community and various stakeholders further afield for working together so well to achieve their vision. A core focus of the club will be to attract and retain female players and their families to the facility to grow the game. The existing roughly 3,500 members will also be very well catered for.
We look forward to seeing the build in progress. Completion and opening of the facility is due to happen in early May 2019.
