Squash: Masters event for Dumfries

14 11 2009

Over the weekend of Friday to Sunday, November 20 to 22, Nunholm Squash Club is hosting the inaugural South of Scotland Masters Open Squash Championships.

This is a Scottish Squash Masters circuit ranking tournament and provides age-group competitions from the O35s right up to the O75s for men and O35s and O-50s for ladies.

Participants in ranking tournaments gain points throughout the season which decide team selection for the Scottish teams participating in the Home Internationals held annually in May.

Tournament Director, Keith Gristwood, said: “This is a prestigious tournament to attract to Dumfries and we are proud to be hosts for the first time.

“We are expecting a large entry of 80-90 players, the majority of whom will be Scottish from as far away as Wick, Inverness and Aberdeen, but also from Cumbria and the Durham areas due to our club’s connections in these areas.”

He added: “We are extremely grateful to our numerous sponsors, particularly in the current economic climate, without whose financial assistance we would be hard pushed to put on such a tournament.

“Masters squash tournaments are very social events and many players are accompanied by their partners and some with their children so the town will benefit from an influx of 120+ people during the weekend seeking accommodation, food and drinks and entertainment.” Read the rest of this entry »

Court side account of the final home internationals

20 05 2008

Friday saw a sunny Edinburgh welcome the Men’s and womens over 35’s and the mens over 40’s squash teams from all the home nations. With me at number 5 I had to begin the campaign and did so with a 3-0 win over the Welsh number 5 – this extended to the team winning 5-0 over Wales. We then took on Ireland in the morning and repeated the 5-0 result. This left us neck and neck with the strength of England. Read the rest of this entry »

It was with great excitement that the Nunholm squash contingent arrived at the Welsh Institute of Sport on Friday for a quick practice to get used to the courts prior to the start of the Masters Home Internationals. Warm and true they suited us well.

5 pm arrived and we were on court against Wales who were keen to win on home soil. With the gents team playing on the court beside us we supported each other. Read the rest of this entry »

Nunholm Squash Masters enter the fray for Scotland

This Friday sees the start of the Masters Squash Home Internationals in Wales (25/26th April) and that means that several players from Nunholm Squash Club will be stepping onto the court for Scotland against England, Wales and Ireland.

Jimmy Wells and Robin Ridley are playing in the Scotland over-45 team, and Sue Strachan is in the Scotland over-40 team. As Club Chairman Sue says “it’s exciting”.

The next round involving Dumfries Sports Club members is in Ireland on the 3rd/4th May when Davy Rogan plays for Scotland over-70s and Abbie Robertson for the over-65 team.

And finally Sue Strachan is in action again, this time at home in Scotland, for the over-35 team on 16th/17th May.

Club’s Squash players selected for Scotland

The Scottish Masters Closed Championships took place last weekend in Aberdeen and had a strong representation from the Nunholm Squash Club.

Davy Rogan showed that 70 is the new 40 by winning the over-70 National Championships to add to his East and Central titles. Sue Strachan finished runner-up in the over-35 and over-40 competition.

As a result of Masters’ performances five players from the squash section have been selected to play for Scotland in the upcoming Home Internationals.

Jimmy Wells and Robin Ridley were picked for the over-45 team, Abbie Robertson for the over-65’s, Davy Rogan for the over-70’s and Sue Strachan for the over-40 and over-35 teams.

Nunholm Squash Masters go North

26 02 2008

The Scottish Masters Closed Championships are on this weekend in Aberdeen and will have a strong representation from the Nunholm Squash Club.

Sue Strachan in the over-35 and over-40’s women’s competitions hopes to be well placed and has a full weekend with five tough matches to play. Les Harkness is the club’s sole representative at over-40’s and Jim Wells moves on to join Ronnie Carter in the over-45’s in the largest of all the age group draws. Abbie Robertson hopes to catch the eye of the selectors at over-65 and Davy Rogan ,who is the reigning Scottish champion and number 1, hopes to hang on to his title despite strong opposition by “the young guy” in the draw who is “only 70”! The club wishes them good luck in their trek north.

Central Scotland Squash Masters

10 02 2008

The squash masters were at it again this weekend, this time in the Bridge of Allan Open Masters Tournament. Once more they figured in the finals.

Davy Rogan repeated his East of Scotland victory by winning the over 70’s event. Sue Strachan was beaten again in a Masters final in the Ladies’ over 35 event but is hopeful that the results will put her in a good position to be selected when the Scottish National  teams are announced in March.

Nunholm hopes to have representatives at several Scotland age groups for the
Home Internationals in May 2008.

East of Scotland Squash Masters

27 01 2008

In the East of Scotland Open Masters Tournament this weekend, at the Edinburgh Sports Club, players from the squash section were right up there amongst the best.

Davy Rogan triumphed in the over 70’s event to become East Champion outclassing his opposition on the way to the title. Robin Ridley won the East of
Scotland over 50’s Open comfortably and Sue Strachan was pipped at the post coming runner-up in the Ladies’ over 35 event.
