Family caught up in the game of squash

AFTER meeting at the old squash courts in Alice St, Stuart and Michelle Anderson are now in their fourth decade of squash.

Along with son Jason, they play Warwick Rose Squash Club fixtures which resume tonight at St Mary's Courts after the holiday break.

Michelle first played as a 16-year-old while a student at Warwick State High School.

She has won four ladies club championships down the years and been runner-up on four occasions.

Stuart has played since the age of 25.

He has won a B-grade club championship.

Michelle said Warwick Rose Squash was a good social and family club.

Their three sons have played; the two elder boys, John and Christopher, are now at university, but played during their school years. All five have won premierships.

John made Darling Downs school teams while at Warwick High and now Jason is preparing for represent Darling Downs for a third time in Rockhampton in May.

Teams in Warwick squash are selected for each season's fixtures to ensure an even competition, so Stuart, Michelle and Jason are all in different teams this season.

That means they are at St Mary's Tuesday and Wednesday nights each week.

Team spots are full this season, but players keen to play in season 2 can call Danny Lyons on 4661 1092.
