THE WRAP

Welcome to the May edition of the Thin Red Line!

We start this issue by thanking and congratulating all those who took part, facilitated, supported, donated or just played a small part in any way with this year's MS 24 Hour Mega Squash & Racquetball event.

Both events held at MSAC & Wodonga respectively were a resounding success, with plenty of fun had and money raised in the name of supporting a wonderful cause. You can find out more about each event in the news items below!

This month's Thin Red Line Podcast is a preview of the time-honoured Hopman Cup - Victorian Country Teams Squash Championships, which is being held at MSAC this weekend. Give it a listen and find out all you need to know ahead of the crowning of the 'Best in the Bush'!

Also make sure to check out some other important items for this month, including the recent changes introduced to Australian Racquetball Rules, a feature on the wildly popular Racquetball program being run at Boroondara Park Primary School and the respective national team selections of Sarah Cardwell and Jessica Graham!

Well done to both Sarah and Jessica, and we wish you all the best in the green and gold!

Remember, contributions to the THIN RED LINE are always welcome! If you have any news about your club, venue, region, etc. that you would like included in the newsletter, please let us know - ben@eskimomediagroup.com.au.
