Women’s Monday Night Squash Tournament

Attention Women’s Monday Night Squash folks,

Monday, December 4th will be the final Women’s Squash Night for 2023! The final night will be a small tournament and pre-registration is required. All are welcome to register! We strongly encourage signing up for the tournament as soon as possible.

The tournament will be hosted at SMU at the regular time between 7-9pm. It will be fun, with prizes, food and a friendly atmosphere. As an added bonus, women’s squash player and official referee Elvira Mitraka has kindly offered to help with refereeing at the tournament (besides playing in the tournament) so it will be a great opportunity to get experience refereeing and how to play an official match.

If you already have a Club Locker account, click this link to register for the tournament ($15 fee).

If you do not yet have a Club Locker account, click here to create an account. We strongly encourage purchasing a competitive membership if you plan on competing in Nova Scotia this year.

Regular Monday Nights Women’s Squash will resume January 8, 2024. Thank you to everyone who has come out to play this fall making Women’s Monday Night Squash at SMUfit a success.
