Peter Eaton Memorial Consistency Award

Peter Eaton Award Criteria

Peter moved to Bega in 1976 with wife Val & daughters Tess & Katrina to run the store at north Bega. He was quick to recognise that there was a niche for squash courts in the town so he had them built.  At the age of 36 Peter took up squash seriously and quickly became the best in the district. He went on to win our club championship 9 times, coached numerous juniors including his own daughters who both won our ladies championship.


The “Peter Eaton award” however recognises more the highly competitive attitude he bought to the game. None can recall him ever missing a match- for any reason. Once you were selected to his team a bond was formed and you were a team. Team practice was mandatory, not whether but how often. All were on hand at 7pm to watch your 3 team- mates play, everyone scored or refereed, and all commiserated or celebrated the teams result. Peter would do what ever it took, within the rules (& sometimes only just) to win. Losing was not an option.
Standards set by Peter in the formative days of our club ensured a keen interest and smooth running with a good supply of well-tutored juniors.


The person who receives this coveted award each year is the person recognised by the committee as best upholding his spirit in the following:

  • Dedication to his sport & his team, Peter was a champion but his win meant nothing if the team didn’t win- it’s a team sport.
  • Placing a high priority on being available for each match.
  • Once on the court winning is everything & you must give your all while still showing good sportsmanship.
  • Off the court it is your duty to fully support your team- mates with advice or verbal encouragement.
