Penrith Squash and Racketball club to raise money for BBC Children in Need

The Penrith Squash & Racketball Club is to raise money for this year’s BBC’s Children in Need appeal by getting ‘SPOTacular’ with a 24hr Rackethon.

From 6.00pm on Friday the 17th November (the night of the BBC’s live entertainment extravaganza) members of the club are coming together to play squash, racketball and table tennis over a 24 hour period until 6.00pm the following day 18th November.

Speaking of their plans, Richard Utting said: “We’ve always wanted to do something for Children in Need and felt a 24 hour racket marathon would be a great way to support it. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far and we are looking forward to the day and hope it raises lots of money for BBC Children in Need.

We are also hoping that people will want to come down to the club and support us as well as donating to our JustGiving page’.

29 members of all ages are supporting the event playing 2 hour stints across the 24 hours.

They will be able to play either squash, racketball or table tennis or all 3 during their stint.

The club will be ‘dressed’ in Children in Need bunting and posters and hopefully many of the participants will also dress up in Pudsey gear.

This will hopefully bring our squash community closer together not only to raise money for a great cause but also to have some fun.
