RA Fieldhouse Loyalty Program
Did you know that having a beverage or a bite to eat in the Fieldhouse can help support your respective squash club league? All you need to do is mention to the server which squash league that you are a part of. Your league will get back 5% of total expenditures to use towards an end of season wrap-up in the Fieldhouse.

SPONSORSHIPS
We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available for club events, leagues, and tournaments. If you know someone who may be interested in sponsoring an activity please contact Steve Gobel at steve.p.gobel@gmail.com.


FACILITY UPDATES 

The Steam Room project is well under way!
The framing for the steam room has been completed in the men's east locker room and the framing in the women's east locker room has started and will be completed by April 13th.  After the framing is complete, the next step is the modification work to the plumbing. This work will require at minimum, a two day shut-down of each locker room (dates to be confirmed).     
 
Both the men's and the ladies' East locker rooms will be closed for a two-week period respectively for the application of epoxy to the wall, floor and ceiling of the steam room area.  The men's locker room will be closed from Monday, April 18 through Friday, April 29 and the women's is scheduled for closure from May 2 to 15. These closures are necessary due to the strong odour emitted from the epoxy.

Fa cility and Property Services Director, Ross Rankin, is expecting that the new steam rooms will be in service by the end of May.

Court Temperature: The warm court temperature that players have been experiencing is caused by a damper that is seized in the heating unit. The heat supply to the courts has been turned off. The part has been ordered, however, the installation will be delayed until the heating unit for the entire West Wing of the building is turned off for the season and all water drained from the system. Traditionally, the West wing heating unit is turned off for the season between the third week in April and the second week of May depending on the weather.
