This is a singles tournament and all skills levels are welcome as there will be novice, open and junior divisions. Juniors start time is 4:30 p.m. on the Wednesday and adults will hit the courts at 5:15 p.m. The first, second and third place players will receive prizes when the dust settles.
A social and dinner will take place on the Friday evening for the players. Non-players interested in delicious food and hanging out with squash enthusiasts can purchase dinner.
Deadline to register is Nov. 1 and for more information call or visit the Racquet Club's website.

Wrestling clinic to be rescheduled

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE -The introduction to wrestling clinic and camp that was set to take place this Nov. 1 at St. Patrick High School has been cancelled.

A new date for the clinic will be announced, but it is aimed to take place before the new year.
