Squash: SOS Masters follow-up

20 01 2010

Dear Members,

Now that the tournament accounts have been finalised and the Festive season is well and truly over for another year, I thought I’d report back to you on our inaugural South of Scotland Masters Open Squash Championships.

In all measures the tournament was a big success and this was partially down to our sponsors. All the feedback to-date has been extremely positive and many participants were taken aback pleasantly with the homely-feel to our club and the tournament itself. At subsequent tournaments, several players who couldn’t make it to Dumfries indicated that they’d heard all about it and would be attending next year.

In economic terms, the tournament was a big success: Read the rest of this entry »

Squash: Inaugural SoS Masters this weekend

17 11 2009

An opportunity this weekend for Sports Club members to come along and support their local squash player!

This Saturday and Sunday provides the opportunity to watch some top quality competitive squash in Dumfries. Nunholm Squash Club is hosting the inaugural South of Scotland Masters Open Squash Championships. This is the first such squash event to be held in the South West or the Borders.

As a Scottish Squash Masters circuit ranking tournament it provides age-group competitions from the Over 35s right up to the Over 75s for men and Over 35s and Over-50s for ladies.

The Nunholm club currently has four Scottish Masters champions (out of nine) with Jimmy Wells in the U45s, Robin Ridley in the O50s and David Rogan in both the O70s and O75s

The tournament draw took place over the weekend with 85 competitors signed up.

Jimmy Wells plays his first match on Saturday morning in what should be a keenly contested O45s category which includes England player Tony Hetherington from Carlisle, fellow Scotland player Ronnie Carter from Lockerbie and Les Harkness who defeated Wells in the final of the Nunholm Club Championships.

The club’s Sue Strachan, who represented Scotland in the ladies O35s last season, will be hoping to do well on hot home courts.

Scotland’s top players Peter O’Hara and Simon Boughton are favourites to contest the O35 final. In the O40s, Craig Thomson from Aberdeen and Colin McMullan from Whitburn are touted for their title and at least 30 Scottish Masters internationalists will be on the courts at Nunholm this weekend.

Matches start on Saturday morning from 9:20 until around 6:30pm with semi-finals played on Sunday morning and the business end in the afternoon with the finals.

Entrance is free to all spectators to see some of Scotland’s top Masters’ squash players, some of the best squash seen locally and to support the home grown players.

The results and the subsequent rankings will help decide the Scottish team selections for the annual Home Internationals in May

The draw and details can be found here.
