Squash: Under 30s squash competition

30 01 2010

The continued increase in younger players taking up squash with Dumfries and Galloway Squash Clubs will see many of them come together for the U-30 Dumfries and Galloway Closed Squash Tournament on Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27.

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 and Son sponsored Dumfries and Galloway Squash Leagues will all have younger players taking part in the competition which launched last year.

The competition will be open to any member of a Dumfries and Galloway Squash Club who is under 30 years of age and will take place this year at Dumfries Sports Club based at Nunholm.

Organiser Raymond Currie from Dumfries Squash Club said: “We are delighted to be the host club for the U-30 competition and we hope to see a healthy entry of younger players from across all the Dumfries and Galloway Clubs.

“We would also be delighted to see as many spectators as possible over the Friday night and the Saturday as there will be a good level of squash to watch.”

Raymond added: “I would like to express our thanks to our sponsors Wessex Park and Leisure Homes 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, 01387 257036 for more details.

DG Closed Finals: Winner Robin Ridley and runner-up Neil McBryde

The Dumfries and Galloway Closed Tournament was once again held at Dumfries Sports Club.

Attracting more than 40 entries from around the region, the competition was sponsored by Botex Forestry Cranes, Dalbeattie.

Play started on Monday night without the big two of Jim Wells – illness and Les Harkness – injury.

This really opened up the draw and made for some great matches and brought some new faces into the frame.

By Wednesday night things were taking shape and there were plenty competitive, close matches for the spectators to watch. Read the rest of this entry »

Squash: Wellsy wins the west

Jimmy Wells West Masters Champion 08

Jimmy Wells West Masters Champion 08

Jimmy Wells, the present Nunholm Club Champion, with a fine example of attacking squash as ever, recently added the West of Scotland Masters title to the Stonehaven Masters which he won in September.

Jim had a troubled season last year with injuries but still managed to represent Scotland at the Home Internationals in May.

Nunholm has been represented at over 40/45/50/55/and even over 70s in the tournaments held in Autumn 2008. Sue Strachan managed a creditable runners up performance in the West of Scotland and Jim Scriven in particular was Wellsy’s biggest threat in the over 45s in Stonehaven.

Coming up for Dumfries and Galloway Squash players is the Dumfries and Galloway Closed Championships held at Nunholm over the week beginning December 1. Entry fee is £2. All entries should go to Jim Wells by November 23. Competitors don’t need to be international standard to play in this tournament, the more the merrier! The club is hoping for a good turn out from not only Nunholm but also Thornhill, Lockerbie and Castle Douglas clubs. Everyone will get at least two matches as all first round losers will be entered into a plate competition.
