Next series of coaching starts 16 April 2016

Dear Players and Parents,

Tomorrow, 19 March 2016, is the last session before Easter and we will resume again on
16 April with the next series of 10 coaching sessions.

I am very pleased to announce that the club will have a new lead coach
starting on 16 April, with Chris Gorman joining us. Some of you will
have met Chris last week and will already have an idea of the qualities
he will bring to the club. Chris is a qualified England Squash coach,
plays to a very high standard and has an excellent reputation in the
local area. He comes very highly recommended from his work with the
juniors at Biddenden, where he coaches during the week. The club is
delighted to have his services and is convinced he will be an very good
asset to the junior coaching team.

Mike will continue as coach, providing support to Chris (as will I), but
has been thinking about lightening his coaching load for some time. This
has given him the opportunity. Mike was instrumental in setting up and
developing the junior coaching at Poult Wood and has give a significant
amount of time over many years. We all have a lot to thank him for and
are very pleased he is continuing to coach and support the club. This
will make a smooth transition to Chris’s leadership and ensure, by
having me and Mike supporting Chris, that all sessions are fully
covered. Matt White will also continue to support with coaching when needed.

I will write again with information on the new term. Meanwhile, Mike and
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
