Dear Squash Community,
Please come, we need your help. Bayside Squash Club’s fate will be sealed on Tuesday evening, Feb 24, at Delta City Hall – 4500 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Ladner, BC V4K 3E2.
The Public Hearing to rezone the land that Bayside sits on, in order to tear it down and build homes there instead, starts at 7pm on Tuesday Feb 24th and continues until everyone has been heard.
So, if you can’t get there at 7, please come at 8 – or 9 or if we’re lucky 10. If Bayside is to continue as a Squash Club and not get replaced by private homes, we need people there. We need the squash community there to tell City Council that Squash in Delta @ Bayside is important to keep. Please come and speak up for Bayside.
If you can’t come, please write a letter or email to email@example.com . If you wrote in before, please write in again – your letter will be considered new evidence. You can mail a letter in, email it or fax it to 604-946-3390. In order to be considered, correspondence must be received by 4:00 pm on Tuesday, February 24, but correspondence received by 1:00 pm on Friday, February 20 will be in the agenda package.
We are also working diligently on helping to find a new owner for the Club. With the recreational zoning firmed up by Council, we believe the realtor and owner will start considering offers for it as such.
Thank you so much for your help. We truly do need you. If you have any questions, please email us at BaysideSquashClub@Gmail.com
Louise Latremouille, President, Bayside Squash Society
The Bayside Squash Club in Delta needs your help. Bayside has been an integral part of squash in BC for over 30 years and now our clubhouse is at risk of being rezoned and demolished. Yan Ling Wu bought the club a couple of years ago from Tim Saunders as a real estate investment. Tussy Berg is her realtor and holds the listing for the property.
We need your help in two ways: Firstly, we would like to help Tussy find a new owner for our clubhouse. An owner who can see the incredible potential the Bayside Club has and will help it grow. So if you know of anyone, or think you might be interested yourself, please contact Tussy through the listing above.
Right now though, until a new owner is found, we need your help to keep our clubhouse zoned for recreational use. Please help the Bayside Club. You can do this simply by sending an email to Delta Community Planning, Susan Elbe firstname.lastname@example.org to the attention of Mayor and Council. Keep your letter simple, a sentence or two will do:
Dear Mayor and Council,
Regarding the re-zoning application file No. LU007270; I am not in favour. I am writing to support that the Bayside Squash Club, located at 6788 Corbould Road, Delta, BC, continue to operate as a squash and fitness club. The Bayside Squash Club, Delta’s only squash facility, has been an integral part of Squash in BC for over 30 years and I would like to see it continue as such.
Thank you for supporting the sport of squash in BC.
(Your name and address)

Did you know that Squash BC has an initiative to raise funding for grassroots squash? It’s called the 2020 FUND.
As funding from government and other sources becomes less and less predictable, it is important that we find alternative ways to ensure a sound financial future for Squash. The intention is to use monies accumulated through the 2020 Fund to promote the growth of the game through the development of junior squash. The fund reached it’s goal eight years ahead of schedule and is distributing funds to groups growing the game.
- 2020 Fund balance – $302,322
- Donations received in 2014 – $21,079!
- Grants paid in 2013 – $9289
We would like to acknowledge four significant events that support the 2020 Fund. In addition to generating significant $ for the 2020 Fund, they also do a fantastic job of keeping the Fund on everyone’s radar screen.
- Arbutus’ High Game Tournament
- BC Jesters Calcutta (held at Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club)
- Bentall Centre Athletic Club’s Halloween Open Team Championships
- Global Fitness and Racquet Centre’s Joe Hattori Memorial Squash Tournament
Many thanks for your continued support of the 2020 Fund.

Evergreen Squash Club is hosting its third annual fundraising event to help eradicate cancer and enhance the lives of people living with cancer. This event began in support of Evergreen’s friend and colleague Paul Marley who was diagnosed with Cancer in 2011. In October 2012 the club also suffered the terrible loss of a 10 year old junior to Cancer. This event honours the brave members of our community touched by cancer who are an inspiration to us all. Evergreen Squashes Cancer helps to invest in life-saving research, compassionate support programs like the volunteer driver program that helps people get to treatment-related appointments, and innovative cancer prevention initiatives. Through this tournament, Evergreen hopes to show people touched by cancer that they are not alone.
As well as running a tournament for men, women and juniors, for the second year running Evergreen is also proud to be hosting a professional women’s tournament featuring 4 of the world’s top women’s squash pros. This year we are looking forward to 2 returning players and 2 new faces:
- Samantha Cornett #31 — Canadian #1
- Rachel Grinham #13 — former world #2
- Tesni Evans – WSA #27
- Donna Urquhart – WSA #35
The pros will play in a round robin format. Two games will take place on Thursday, Friday night and Saturday afternoon, and the Final between the top two players will take place on Sunday afternoon.
The men’s, women’s and juniors tournament takes place 7th January to 11th January, 2014, and provides a great start to the new year. Entry includes 3 matches guaranteed, food and beverage tickets and entry to Saturday pub night at Capilano Rugby Club.
Donations are made through and to the Canadian Cancer Society. Direct donations can be made both on the Evergreen website and the Canadian Cancer Society page: http://convio.cancer.ca/goto/evergreen
