After a very successful 2016/2017 tournament season with increased participation and some great champions crowned we are now looking forwards to the 2017 /2018 season for some equally exciting and very competitive squash; combined with some great social weekends. We want increased participation this year in all the events and will be publicising them heavily to encourage you to enter; plus just so you are aware there is equal prize money for male and female competitors, and we’ve had this stance for many, many years…..
- Senior County Champion Rory Birtwistle.
- Over 35s Nigel Rowe
- Over 45s Nigel Rowe
- Doubles Calli Smith and Joshua Watkins
The first of these events will be the Wiltshire Seniors Closed being held at the Wessex Squash Club, Swindon from Friday 19th January to Sunday 21st January. A fantastic tournament this year which saw Rory Birtwistle demolish a all his opponents with ease, if he enters this year it’s a struggle to see who would defeat him; great to see two teenagers making their presence show, Calli Smith having a great run beating Steve Wakefield, Gary Preston and Simon Lucas before losing to James Ryan; and Joshua Watkins winning a great plate event beating Tessa Perry, Mike Hyland and Jonny Carne. Put the date in your diary, book out the weekend and look out for more details nearer the event. It’s a great tournament and the more players the better it is………
