First on court Ryan Barrett our number 5 took on Keith Broome, an evenly matched game Ryan managed to win 3-1. Next Richard Church played Alan Ford, levelling it 1-1 Richard couldn’t tip the balance to secure the win and lost 3-1. Jon Sharpe our number 3 went on to play John Huxter, losing the first two 12-14, 10-12, our Squash Section Captain went on to pull it back and win 11-18 in the fifth, great performance! Team Captain Chris Goodwill on next against Raul Martinez, another tight match, but Chris just missed out 10-12 in the fourth to lose 3-1. So with the overall match tied 2-2, it was up to Mike Gregory our number one to produce the goods and he did. Playing Graham Rogers, it was a solid performance from both, but Mike won 11-5, 11-6, 11-6. Therefore, we won 3-2 and are currently placed mid table at the end of the first half. Next up is the Devon Cup match away on Monday 12th December versus Fort Stamford, good luck team.

On Sunday 13th November Exeter Golf and Country Club was host to some of the best young squash players from around the country as it ran an England Squash Bronze ranking event. 58 players in total came to the club to play the tournament with over 100 matches being played in the day across the club’s 5 squash courts.
The standard across all age groups (from Under 11 years to Under 19 years) was very high and some quality squash was played. Standout matches were the boys U13 Semis and final and the Girls U17 Final. It was great to see so many good young players competing at the club and it definitely set the standard for some of the club members watching!
We look forward to running more Junior events like this in the future, and will look to cement the club as being one of the premier venues for squash in the South West! There will be a Professional ranking event in the New Year so keep an eye out.
