The sport of squash is enjoying a comeback at Maccabi Victoria


Bright start for squash club

Squash at Maccabi Victoria is on the rebound. The first season of 2022 is about to come to an end for the newly re-established Maccabi Victoria Squash Club.

There have been encouraging signs of increased interest in registration, and also coaching sessions. It’s hoped this trend continues in the coming months.

Squash, being indoors, is a brilliant sport to play throughout winter.

If anyone is interested in playing competition squash for Maccabi, which begins next month, or playing social squash with the club, contact Justin on 0400 551 611 orĀ email



Maccabi open day

Maccabi Athletics Club will be holding a special open day training session on Sunday, May 1 from 4pm to 5.30pm at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve.

It’s not only for club members and trial athletes, but also for all young Jewish athletes preparing for the upcoming Eastern Independent Schools Melbourne athletics carnivals, which will include students from King David School, Bialik and Mount Scopus colleges.

There will be additional athletics coaches on hand to share tips on sprinting, middle distance running, jumping, shot put and discus, plus a specialist javelin coach.

Come and give athletics a go.
