You will be aware that we are holding a Pro Tournament in January and this year the Committee has decided to break ranks with other organisers and offer equal prize money to the Ladies as for the Men. Without doubt the right thing to do but it does mean we need more prize money than before.
Could I ask each member who is in a suitable financial position to look hard at whether they could sponsor/donate some funds to this cause. Holding a successful Pro tournament (this will be our fourth) puts the Club on the map not only within the Squash community (new members etc) but also in the local community (new corporate sponsors). You can rest assured your Committee are looking outside the Club for funds but it is always prudent to start from within so any amount will make a difference.
Thanks in advance and any member wishing to discuss advertising/promotion and benefits of sponsoring this event please get in touch with me.
