Squash and Squash57 Finals Day 2019 Results and Report
Thank you all for a great turnout on Saturday for the 2019 Squash and Squash57 Finals Day; the culmination of the knockout events that we have been waging for the past couple of months, with pretty much every member participating!
Many of you were there to lend your support, and it was great that the beer kept flowing and the presentations were well attended.
We all owe a huge thank-you to Sean O’Shea who did a tremendous job in organising this year’s club championships!
Both the open event finals were hard-fought 5 setters, with both runner ups gaining a 2 game ascendancy before being eventually overhauled by the eventual winners.
In the open squash final, our club coach and England coach, Adam Fuller, eventually overcame our first team captain and England over-35 debutant Ali Coker, prevailing in the 5th game. The standard of squash was extremely high in a hotly contested match.
In the open squash57 final, club stalwarts Kev Thorpe and Mark Shattock went neck and neck for 5 long games. Mark missed match ball opportunities in the 3rd and 4th, with Kev capitalising to win out in the 5th.
In the ladies final, Chloe Spratt was crowned champion for the 3rd year in a row, beating a recent new member of the club, Helen Watson in another excellent final.
The full list of winners and runners-up is shown below, and attached are photos of the winners. More photos can be found on the club Facebook page.
Put a note in your diary for the cup final weekend on 18th and 19th May. We have the John Cheshire memorial doubles on the Saturday, and we will be showing the FA Cup Final that kicks off at 5pm. And there is a club open day on the Sunday - why don’t you book one of your box games for then, and help us show what a vibrant and welcoming club we have.
