We hope you enjoy your return to the Richmond Hill Squash Club and remind you to remember — many of us have been absent from any meaningful/strenuous exercise for an extended period, so we should all start slow and move about the court carefully.

On behalf of your Board of Directors, we wish you a HUGE ‘welcome back’.
