Squash Tournament – Sponsored by Bath Ales

Saturday 28th April brought together the players for the final round of matches for this years club championships. With over 40 entrants into the event we had a lot of great games to get through. The beauty of the monad draw is that it gives everyone in the event matches all the way through the rounds, culminating in a final round match for each player to decide their final position whether that is a final or last place.

We graded the event to ensure all level of players could enjoy the club champs.

The first final we had was the B grade between Adam Conisbee, a new member to the club this year and local legend Lee Jacobs. It was a titanic affair going the distance with Adam taking the title 12-10 in the fifth game!!

The C grade saw another incredibly close final between Andy Christie and Dave Jukes. Both players playing some great squash with some brilliant attacking squash on show.  It was a day of 5 setters and this one Dave snuck to take the title.

The Ladies were up next and it was a final we have seen many times before between club legend Pippa Green and the very classy Carolyn Chennells. This was a superb final and a great advert for our recently crowned ladies first team champions. The match was incredibly close throughout with some absolutely brutal rallies. Pippa used her experience in these big matches and took the final game 11-9.

Last of all saw the men’s final, another final we have seen a few times before and always an entertaining battle. This was the only 3-0 of the day and saw Will take the club championship for another year vs Andy Ewings. The score didn’t tell the whole story as there were some fantastic rallies and very competitive squash throughout at a blistering pace!

Overall it was a fantastic day of squash and a great advert for the sport at the club!  For pictures of the winners and runners up, click here.
