Club handicap tournament 2022
The club membership arranged and played a Christmas handicap tournament. This was carried out as a round robin of two boxes with the top two in each box going through into a knock out draw. Andrew Morrison was a well deserved winner.
Handicaps were largely based on the use of Squash Levels but for those members who have not played any tournaments and therefore had not points to base their handicap, judicious decisions were made based on members knowledge.
It was agreed by all at the end of the evening that it had been great fun and that this should be an annual event. Role on Christmas 2023.
Over 60s and Over 70s Closed Tournament 2019 – 2020
The Oxfordshire Squash Closed tournament for the Over 60s and Over 70s this year took place at Hithercroft on the 11th January 2020. Now Covid has loosened its grip, we plan to have the 2023 tournament in Spring 2023. Watch this space.
The top four Over 60s players currently in the County entered the competition along with another three strong entrants. Sadly the 2019 winner, David Wright, had retired due to health issues but came along to handover the annual shield.
The Over 60s was strongly contested, but in the final Aubrey Bell ably dealt with David Kirk in a masterful display of controlled squash. The shield was sponsored by Trevor Cox.
In the Plate which was a round-robin of three people, it came down to the final match with Andrew Wilson, a seeded Over 60s but beaten in the first round, playing Andrew Smith who is possibly the current top over 65s player in the county. They had a titanic 5 setter with Andrew Smith just coming out the winner.
For the Over 70s probably the top four players in the County signed up for the tournament. This was run as a round-robin and again there was no one clear winner who beat all of the other three players. Although Trevor Cox was beaten in his game against Pete Ibson, Trevor finished with one more point and is the champion for this year.
The pictures show Aubrey getting his trophy from last year’s winner David Wright along with all the contestants of the day with the front row showing the two age group winners and the Over 60s plate.
