As part of the Castleford and Pontefract League Be TT project a new Bat and Chat session started today at Pontefract Squash Club. The new social session proved to be a hit with the local community attracting a mix of existing league players and also a new audience of beginner players who had seen the session advertised in the local press. Coaching was on hand for those wanting to hone their skills but many just welcomed the opportunity to try the sport for the first time or pick up a bat after a lengthy absence from the sport.
Dennis Shaw, Press Secretary for the Castleford and Pontefract League commented- ‘This has been an excellent turn out for the first session and much beyond my expectations. We will continue to ask the participants what they want from the sessions and hopefully in time this will help grow our local league’.
