Her interest and dedication to juniors, in firstly exposing them to squash and then developing their skills, should be commended.

Congratulations Sue Cowell.
The Squash Factory hosted a WA Masters Tournament over the weekend. Thanks to everyone who came along and made it a wonderful weekend, despite the incredibly warm weather!
The Squash Factory and Marmion Squash Club would like to thank everyone that participated and supported us during the Winter 2013 Night Pennants Competition. It was another successful season for Marmion, and we were able to bring home two championships.
Ladies Tuesday Division One - comprised of Stephanie Oliver, Tomoko McLean, Linda McBriety, Erica Bester, and Sandra Heeney - won their grand final in spectacular fashion. After a very close season that saw Victoria Park and Marmion separated by only two points at the top of the ladder, it seemed inevitable the two sides were due to meet again in the grand final.
Although Victoria Park seemed to have our measure during the regular season, the Marmion ladies managed to absolutely dominate the grand final, dropping only one game and 35 points on their way to a 3-0 victory. An indication of their dominance throughout the season, Marmion players collected first, second, and third in the Most Valuable Player tally at season's end. Congratulations ladies!
Men's Tuesday Division Four - Chris Scolari, Robert Price, Jason King, and Adam Scolari - had a much more competitive grand final. After a poor start to the season, the Marmion boys steamed home, collecting 60 competition points over the last four rounds of the regular season to sit one point clear of Hilton at the top of the ladder.
After splitting their meetings during the season 1-1, Marmion and Hilton faced off in a fantastic and nail-biting grand final at The Squash Factory. In a game split by only seven points and one game, the home team managed to do enough to collect the victory. A well fought game from both sides, congratulations!
Spring Pennants begins on September 16.
At 6.30pm on Wednesday 22 April 2009, approximately 200 people watched World Champion David Palmer cut the red ribbon to officially open The Squash Factory in Wangara. Sue Cowell, representing the owners of The Squash Factory, welcomed various dignitaries including WA Squash President Steve Bowen and Ambassador for WA Squash Sue Hillier. Also in attendance were WA Squash Life Members, Marmion Squash Club Life Members, WA Squash Board and Committee Members, Marmion Squash Club Committee Members, family and friends.
As the crowd settled back into their seats, David Palmer took to the court to play singles against reigning Australian Junior Champion Zac Alexander (19). David mesmerised everyone with his skill as he put Zac through his paces. The crowd was in awe of the fantastic array of shots, the skill, perfection, and athleticism of Palmer, as well as the level of squash Zac produced as he rose to the occasion.After their game, David paired up with 16-year-old Luke Bunting for a doubles match against Zac and his partner Tim Cowell (20). The excitement of fast-paced doubles on a proper-sized court left the crowd in awe, with The Squash Factory the only squash centre in Perth capable of hosting true doubles squash.
David then teamed up with 14-year-old National Champion Emily Bunting, once again facing Zac Alexander, this time with Jake Davidson (16). Another great game, as well as a fantastic experience for some of Marmion's up-and-coming juniors.
Towards the end of the evening David signed three framed rackets, one for a lucky raffle winner (Scott Jeffreys), one to WA Squash President Steve Bowen, and one to The Squash Factory - still on display behind the bar! Overall it was a fantastic night to officially open the centre. Management, the shareholders and the Marmion Squash Club would like to thank everyone who helped out and attended and hope the evening was enjoyed by all.
