New Competition for Dumfries & Galloway Squash

13 01 2009

An increase in younger players taking up squash with our Dumfries & Galloway Squash Clubs has seen the 4 main clubs come together to organise a new Regional Competition.

The Squash clubs based at Nunholm in Dumfries, Stewartry Community Sports Club (SCSC) in Castle Douglas, Lockerbie and Thornhill who all play in the popular John Henderson & Son sponsored Dumfries & Galloway Squash Leagues are launching a new Under 30 Squash Competition which will take place over the weekend of 21st/22nd February 2009.

The competition will be open to any member of a Dumfries & Galloway Squash Club who is under 30 years of age and will take place this year at SCSC in Castle Douglas. The Castle Douglas based club has probably seen the biggest increase of new younger players as the club has greatly improved its courts and facilities over the last 18 months.

Colin Davies from SCSC said “We are delighted to be the host club for this new competition and we hope to see a healthy entry of younger players from across all the Dumfries & Galloway Clubs. We would also be delighted to see as many spectators as possible over the weekend too as there will be a good level of squash to watch.”

Fellow organiser Raymond Currie from Nunholm added “The organisation of the competition has come together quite quickly as all the clubs have shown a keen interest in getting it off the ground. I would however like to express our thanks to our sponsors Jas P Wilson & Davy Douglas of Backswing for trophies and prizes.”

Entry forms for the competition are available from all the clubs involved although they are also available directly from Raymond Currie, telephone 01387 257036 for more details.

They are also available online here – 2009 U30 D&G Closed Entry Form (in PDF/Adobe format). The closing date is the end of Friday 13th February and the draw will be sent to the respective clubs by the 18th Feb. The early entrants get the t-shirt, literally.
