Exams are upon us and school sport has a rest until the last week in November when nationals and state premierships commence. Good luck to all out BSSC sports men and women in their exams. For opportunities in squash and triathalons.


Did you know that squash has been labelled the “healthiest sport in the world” by studies? The Bendigo Squash Club, located at 242 Barnard street, currently has some great offers available.

On Wednesday nights at 7 pm, they run a beginners night offering a fun way to play squash with other beginners. You get the first night for free, along with free gear hire, and you receive support from the resident coach to get you started.

Students can also play on Thursday nights between 4 and 7 pm for just $5 per hour, including free gear hire.

The club can be contacted on 5443 2777 or email
