THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN By Craig Telmer & The Boaster
The 2016 squash committee consists of 15 finely-tuned athletes. We are rumoured to be the largest committee of any sport at The British Club. We strongly believe that “many hands make light work” and “I don’t mind doing something to promote squash if it includes free beer at committee meetings”. From Left Liam Douglas (Friendlies) Arron Holmes (Tour Advisor) Craig Telmer (Convenor) Jim Mitchell (Team Captain) Richard Offer (Tour Advisor) Keith Carpenter (Handicaps) Damian Glendinning (Treasurer)

Your squash committee has set the following goals for 2016 1. Compete at the highest levels (for our age and waistlines) in SSRA and COSMO. 2. Go on an international tour without anybody being arrested. 3. Win back the Ryder Cup, War of Roses or Ashes silverware. Any one will do. 4. Have somebody challenge Charlie Thomas in the BC Open . . . if that fails dramatically adjust handicaps and try again in the Handicap Championship. 5. Find a few more squash players to grow our section. 6. Have an enjoyable and injury free 2016 squash season. Thanks to all committee members for their time and effort spent promoting squash and The British Club.
