Geelong put on an absolute ripper of a squash tournament!
It's safe to say everybody has a great time at tournaments around Victoria. Especially when you've got a great crew to support you on the court and get you into some mischief off the court.
It all started at 6am on Saturday morning when our drowsy team of players began the road trip to Geelong, keen to make an impression dressed in our bright orange club shirts, and that we did.
If you couldn't see us coming you could definitely hear us, the Bendigo team was very vocal in support of one another. It's undeniable the boost your game receives when you've got 5 or more teammates shouting your name and clapping to every great rally or point won.
As per usual those who lost their first games were relaxed in counting how many drinks were had as the afternoon progressed and the courts started to wind down. From there we enjoyed the must attend dinner hosted by Geelong which led to some adventures out on the town.
A huge thanks to the team at Geelong who ran an excellent tournament and to all those we met, played and had fun with!
The Geelong Open was one of 4 events that Bendigo will be supporting by subsidising costs of attending for any Bendigo Squash Club Members. These are tournaments not to be missed
Congratulations to all of our Bendigo players and especially:
Division 1 - 4th Place
Division 3 - 2nd Place
Division 4 - 2nd Place
Novice - 3rd Place
