Club Championship - normal service resumed

Members may be aware that the club has been undergoing something of a period of restoration recently with the replacement of the terminal on the balcony and the re-establishment of the computer control of the court lighting. This theme was continued on the evening of Sunday 28th March as Stewart Hefferman regained his rightful place as Club Champion by beating Mike Burnett 3 - 2 in the final of the Club's flagship tournament.

The crowd were treated to an absolute spectacle of superb squash with both players contributing to an epic final that ebbed and flowed over a period of at least 90 minutes.

Stewart took the first game 9 - 5 before Mike countered by taking the second 9 - 6. The third game swung Stewarts way again as he won 9 - 6. Mike then took the short fourth game by an astounding scoreline of 9 - 0. Stewart has an absolute deadpan demeanor on court and his reaction to this surprising turn of events was one of mere mild irritation and he went on to seal the victory with an equally surprising 9 - 1 scoreline in the deciding game.

This is Stewart's seventh championship in the last eight years and it was a pleasure to watch. It was certainly the best final I have seen at the club in almost 20 years.

Rakesh Gulati won the Veterans' Tournament by beating Vince Paul 3 - 2 after having to come from behind twice. The final statistics read 4 - 9, 9 - 7, 6 - 9, 9 - 4, 9 - 0.

Ex Club Chairman, David Colwill won the trophy for players in League 7 and below with a 3 - 0 victory over Ian Nunn.


Tim takes the title

Tim Ryan won the 2010 Rob Milliner Summer Handicap Tournament on Sunday 3rd October beating Michael Jacobs in the final. The final score was 100 - 79 after a starting point of 80 - 45. Whilst the match was frequently entertaining, Michael never really got going and was unable to reproduce the form which saw him limit Vince Paul to just seven points in the semi-final.

This led some observers to question the handicap but that would proably be unfair.

The handicap was certainly not in question in the plate final where David Sledge narrowly beat newcomer Peter Bano in an energetic match. David won the match by the close margin of 100 - 98 after starting at 70 - 75. David currently holds the plate for both the Summer and the Winter Handicap Tournaments.


Robert reaps reward in handicap final

Robert Rickman won the Ken Hewison Winter Handicap Tournament by beating Ian Nunn 100 - 92 in the final on Sunday 7th February.

Starting from an initial handicap of 45 - 85, Robert overcame a shaky start which saw the first 6 points shared equally (making his task 18% harder). Having recovered his composure, Robert piled on the points to make up the deficit, eventually passing Ian's score in the early 90's and powered on to take the title with an 8 point margin.

In the Plate final, David Sledge gave an energetic display of running and stretching to beat Stephen Hanover 100 - 92. Starting from 75 - 65, the match progressed over a series of long rallies which kept the small crowd entertained. Both players went just about point for point but Stephen allowed David to play his own game which he did in a remarkably mistake-free manner to take the spoils.
