We hope that everyone enjoyed a fun night of squash and camaraderie at our Winter League finals on the evening of Wednesday, April 10th.
Thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting women’s squash in Toronto & District. In particular we’d like to thank the Mayfair Clubs for hosting our finals as well as T&D events and match play throughout the season and Paul Kelly for capturing the event on camera!
It takes a small army of volunteers to pull off our season and finals and there isn’t room to thank everyone here, so THANK YOU!
