2017 Captain’s Social

Filed Under Captain's Social, Info for Captains | Comments Off on 2017 Captain’s Social 

On MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th, from 6-8pm, the Vancouver Squash League (VSL) is hosting a “Captain’s Social” for all VSL captains and co-captains at the JERICHO TENNIS CLUB. This brief information session will include an overview of a captain’s job requirements, league rules overview and a SportyHQ demo. There will also be a question and answer period and FREE BEER AND APPETIZERS.

This is a great event for captains to get up to speed on the league before it starts and it’s our way of saying “THANKS”. First-time captains are strongly recommended to attend.

If you are a league team captain and can’t attend please feel free to send your co-captain.


Please RSVP by September 20th to be entered in a prize draw: info@vancouversquashleague.com

Thank you!

As usual league is scheduled to start the first week of October.

  • Open Divisions 1-6 will start on Monday, October 2nd
  • Women’s Divisions and Open Div 7 will start on Tuesday, October 3rd

Captain’s Social

The Captain’s Social will be happening early in the week of September 23 – 27th. We’ll announce that as soon as we can via a league-wide email. All first time captains are STRONGLY encouraged to attend. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions.

Hope you’re all back on court getting ready for another amazing season! Please check back here for more updates as we get closer to the season.
