    Hong Kong CC Tour
    April 2014

    Squash had nine members (six players and three non-players) travel to Hong Kong for the sporting sections tour. Squash was played on the Friday and Saturday at HKCC. MCC was successful in winning four matches to two.                                                                       

    After our matches, we were treated to an entertaining exhibition match between two international players, and then gifts were exchanged between players and officials. This was followed by an amazing buffet dinner and drinks in the sportsman bar, sponsored by the HKCC Squash Section.

    We were very impressed by the outstanding club facilities and the great camaraderie that we shared with all their members. We also enjoyed the interaction with all the other sporting sections, and enjoyed supporting their competitions. We look forward to hosting the HKCC in the not too distant future.
