September Squash News


League Review

The September league winners were: –

1 – Richard Reed – 16

2 – Tom Nevitt – 16

3 – Neal Thomas – 28

4 – Pete Robson – 12

5 – Jim House – 27

6 – Ian West – 16


Richard Reed was this month’s division 1 winner, doing so after winning division 2 last month.  Richard is a multiple time league winner from several years back, but after a series of injuries has struggled to make it back to the top league, so congratulations.  It was however very close at the top with Jason Green also scoring 16 points, Richard won due to winning their head to head.


For the second month in row Neal has become the champion of champions, this time with a more modest 28 points, narrowly beating his nearest rival Jim House, who scored 27.


My result of the month goes to Ian West for his 3-0 win over Paul Goulder.


Racketball Pyramid


David Traynor for the fourth consecutive month remains on top of the Racketball Pyramid scoring 19 points.  The points were evenly distributed throughout with Carol House taking second on 17, Alun Lewis third with 14, followed by Steve Frankland (12), Barney (10), Trevor McAlister (7), Adrian Allsopp (6), George McGregor (3) and Toni Lewis (1).


Activity was excellent for the racketball this month with 3 players being tied for the most active player, George McGregor, Steve Frankland, and Alun Lewis all playing 4 matches.

Marking course


Hampshire Squash is holding a referee and marking course at Winchester Squash club, on Sat 10th Nov, between 11am and 2pm.


The course will be run by Peter Goldson, a qualified ES referee instructor. It is a classroom based course, involving video displays, group discussions and Q&A sessions. The course is designed to give candidates a good understanding of the required decision making process, and other responsibilities of squash referees.  The course will also prepare candidates for taking a subsequent online test, within a month of the course, the passing of which would gain them  a Club grade referee certification.


Hampshire squash fund the course, so there is no charge, but places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.


Places can be reserved by contacting STAN THORNTON 07889288209,  giving name and contact details.
