Kaikoura Update

The Kaikoura Club recently found out that their Club rooms did suffer considerable damage from the earthquake; to the value of 72K which needs to be fixed. The club need to raise $25k to cover the insurance excess. One of their fundraising events will be the Kaikoura Open which is taking place on the 5 - 7 May. It would be great to see support from fellow Cantabrians. 

Please note, the dates listed on the Squash Canterbury Tournament Calendar are incorrect.
