Squash Championships 2017

Our Squash Championships, sponsored by Bath Ales took place recently.

Will Kingwell won the Men’s singles with Andy Ewings a close second and Pippa Green won the Ladies with Carolyn Chennels following behind.  In the Men’s B event, it was Julian Moore taking the honours followed closely by Alex Miller.

Special thanks must go to Martin Watson of Watson Financial and Craig Jones of CJ Property Managementwho sponsored Marwan Elshorbagy, the world number 5 squash player who played an exhibition match and also competed against Martin and Craig.  Both Martin and Craig imagined they were representing Wales against Eqypt but I don’t think they saw much of the ball.

The Club Charter is a progressive club development programme that aims to increase the number of adults and juniors playing squash and Racketball in clubs, increase the recruitment, education and development of coaches and volunteers, and improve the infrastructure of our club network.  The Club Charter is linked to Sport England’s Clubmark award.  Put simply, by achieving Club Charter status, we have shown our commitment to offer a welcoming environment, set high standards in child protection, and work closely with local schools to develop the future generations of squash and Racketball players.
