Backswing will be defending the Division 1 title with newly promoted Noblehill Garage one of the teams chasing.

In Division 2 it is wide open but the thriving Castle Douglas Squash Club has two teams entered and maybe the ones to watch.

A new team for this season in Division 2 will by sponsored by Cisco Systems. The team, which is captained by Raymond Currie, will try and field as many of Nunholm Squash Club’s younger squash players.

Raymond said: “We have a squad of around nine players but the core of the team will centre around the younger guys with maybe an “auld yin” helping out now and again.

“If the full squad of the younger guys plays, the average age of the five-man team will between 16 and 17.

“Playing in a team environment will be good experience for them as they will come up against some tough and seasoned opponents from outwith our own club.”
