World Squash Masters

Congratulations go to Jeremy Goulding, Pippa Green and Roger Green who took part in the World Squash masters in Charlottesville, USA last week.

Jeremy narrowly lost in the O60’s semi final and to take the official websites report ‘The most dramatic match of the day came in the Men’s 55+ division between England’s two seed Jeremy Goulding and unseeded Mexican Juan Mendez, a former hardball singles professional. Mendez fought off two match balls in the fifth game to win the match 12-10 in front of a roaring audience’. Well done Jeremy, you did us proud.

Pippa Green also did well winning several matches and Roger Green also did well winning his first round match in the O55’s.

We are very lucky to have such talented players at this Club.
