Last Friday Market Harborough Squash & Racketball Club hosted a Touring side from Inverness, The Inverness Squash Club British Grand Prix Tour.
The Inverness Club combine each year a visit to the British Grand Prix at Silverstone with some friendly Squash. Last year, the terrible weather on the Friday at Silverstone had meant the Inverness team were stranded at the course, so everyone was thankful this year for better weather.
The event was organised by former Daventry players, Dave Humpage who now plays at Inverness and Jon Maynard, now playing at Market Harborough.
The Scottish players were joined by some other Daventry players, to play a series of games against the Fairfield Road club. Fifteen games were played in all, including one doubles game, with the Market Harborough coming out victorious. The evening finished off with food and some musical entertainment from Market Harborough Club’s Andy Fraser and his band, with guest vocalist, Lizzie Turney, another Harborough Club player.
The Harborough Club are now planning a return tour to Scotland!
Thanks go to Jon for organising the games, Andy and Lizzie for the music, Steve Iles, Alison Avil and Sandy Seaward for the food, and Claire and Sharon for doing the bar.
