Melissa Orr Director

Melissa Orr began playing squash at 10 years of age, continued playing while living on the Central Coast, in Griffith and then Cootamundra, and hasn't stopped since. Originally a member of the Wests Squash Club, Melissa's first pennant match was in Ladies G4!

As she moved up the grades, Melissa joined Dickson Squash Club, still plays for the club and enjoys the twice yearly doubles competitions. Monday nights, Melissa is found playing Masters squash and enjoys the social and non-competitive nature of these comps. Some years back, Melissa was employed at Squash ACT as its Development Officer and now assists when needed with Dickson juniors.

Off the court, Mel cheers for the Raiders, enjoys most sports and stays fit while socialising with friends and family. Melissa's background and current employment is in finance, and she brings that valued knowledge and assistance to Squash ACT.
