Peter Tsang who wore his squash trip this July while running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Not only did Peter put himself at danger in the tight streets of Pamplona among rampaging bulls, but he actually sneakily took this picture too – despite cameras being forbidden by the police, for safety reasons. Tut, tut

Here’s a snap of Men’s Captain, Dave Cross on his recent visit to London, outside the Horses Guard Parade in Whitehall, braving the cold and the biting horses! 

Eric Ho can be seen poolside in our sponsor’s top in Guam – where his brother was recently married. Very nice, and very exotic

Helen Chan, a strong supporter of the squash section and a very popular player within the Ladies Teams. Helen recently took a time-out from her busy exercise schedule to enjoy some rest in Cambodia, where she is pictured in her squash gear at the Floating Village on south-east Asia’s largest freshwater lake, Tonle Sap, in March of this year.

 

October best entry is from John Kok, who proudly displays his wares outside the Buhoma entrance to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda. John had the picture taken after returning from some gorilla tracking and trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, together with his guide, Omax. Well done to John, a new location to add to our impressive location.
