National Team End on a High!

Our National Team, sponsored by Charlcombe Homes,  have had a tough season but they had a good 8-4 win at home to Thornden and another 8-4 win at home to Winchester recently.

In their last match, in nearly 30 degree heat, Edwards and Bannister both won 3 set singles matches, both taking nearly 3 hours. Hudson and Blakeley sadly lost their matches leaving the match at 2 matches all going into the doubles.

In the doubles Edwards and Hudson won 6-2 6-4 and Tim Markall and Bannister won 4-6 6-0 10-8 giving Lansdown a 4 matches to 2 (or 8 points to 4 victory).

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.
