Friendly Squash Tournament: England Vs. Hungary, 26 May
An opportunity for an international challenge. and Griff Squash & Fitness club are providing a possibility, as an experiment, for keen social players to test their skills against players from other countries. We present 3 English teams. And what comes next… who knows? It’s all up to you! Meaning that, if our experiment proves to be a success and you like it, then…

One thing is for sure: there will be a return fixture in England where you could join us on an inexpensive trip. (We would mainly be expecting the current participants for the return leg.)

What are you waiting for?
