Next up, Cromer at home.
With several people moving on or away the club is looking to welcome new and former players, young or old, to join the squad for the winter season.
Newcomers needn't worry if they are fairly new to squash as the club will enter the team in a division to suit.
Match nights include a game usually against an opponent of similar ability, followed by a friendly drink and bite to eat.
