Milla moving to Helsinki

Squash player Milla Uusitalo, one of MC Containers' sponsored players, is moving to Helsinki and switching clubs from Oulu Squash Klubi to Helsinki Squash Rackets Club.

"Summer training this summer has been notably more efficient than in previous summers. The main reason for this is the positive encouragement from Kooma Squash Klubi and countless squash players with whom I've had the pleasure of playing high-class matches. A big thank you also belongs to my coaching team, Matti Saarela, Eevamaria Vuolo and Jaakko-Antti Peltola.

The summer has brought some big changes. On August 8th 2017, I signed a new club contract with Helsinki Squash Rackets Club Ry for the upcoming 2017-2018 season. The contract provides me with better contacts to both Finnish and foreign squash activity.

In the fall, I will be studying for six weeks in Helsinki Mäkelänrinne sports college, after which I will return to Oulu. Competition season starts in a national team camp held on 18.-20.8, and the first contests will take place in the Remeo Finnish Junior Open in Helsinki, 25.-27.8.2017. The fall will bring countless other contests also, including women's Finnish Championship League, Nordic Junior Open in Malmö and Danish Junior Open in Copenhagen."


Good luck Milla!
Milla Uusitalo

The hall is being built by KTC Group Oy, with contractor Ari Tihinen, and should be done by the end of November 2016.

It is possible to rent storage room from the asphalt field, as well as the hall when it's done. Please contact us for more information!
