24/7 Squash @ Tonsley (D23, MAB)

Squash SA and Tonsley Innovation District invite the Tonsley community to take part in the next Tonsley 24/7 Squash Corporate Cup.

Now with a new Social Division for beginners and new players, and a Division 1 for more experienced players, the competition is open to people who are working or studying at Tonsley.

The winning team in Division 1 will receive a $75 voucher for food and beverages at The Southern Bar Gaming Bistro (located opposite Tonsley at 1303 South Road, St Marys), while each player in the winning team in the Social Division will receive a new Squash racquet.

A fun sport, squash can burn as many as 1,000 calories per hour. It also provides great opportunities to meet and connect with new people.
