Patrick Cuba started this petition to Macquarie University Sport and Aquatic Centre
We are a squash club that has a very enthusiastic and growing player base. Our club is a mix of both students and community alike. We respect the use of Macquarie University’s sports facilities and play squash for the enjoyment of the game.
On a year on year basis we have seen the cost of court hire double to a point that is making the existence of the squash club increasingly difficult.
Furthermore the club hosts inter-club competition on a weekly night. This used to be a relaxed and enjoyable activity benefitting the university and the club and created an enjoyable atmosphere for all. This has been hampered recently with strict policies forced on by Macquarie University sports centre management.
1) doors shut at 10pm, no exceptions
2) alcohol consumption after 10pm being prohibited on premises
3) increasing court hire costs

This has lead to what was a pleasant weekday evening being rushed and put unneeded pressure on visiting players as well as our own.

With such restrictions we could see the disappearance of the squash club

Discussion and compromise.
Relaxation of the policies.
We don’t mind the alcohol restriction however the spiralling costs and the 10pm curfew introduced on weekday nights will discourage current members and future members from joining

I started this petition, because…
I am an active squash player and member of this club.
With these restrictions I no longer look forward to be playing my home matches.
I work 9 to 5 and 5 days a week and play squash as one of my escapes from a tough week
