Friday night saw the second Mixed Doubles Competition at the Club. The Competition was started last year by club member, Hilary Hearnshaw, and this year she got her fellow club Presidents involved in hosting the Competition, and again secured a prize for the finalists of meal vouchers to Timo’s Restaurant.
The club saw a great evening of squash doubles with six pairs drawn at random playing in two leagues of three before the top four teams played off for the Final. The entry saw a wide range of levels of players taking part and saw some close and competitive matches. The Final saw Ruth Sleigh, a winner from last year and regular doubles player, playing with Club Chairman, Steve Avil, against Kean Williams and youngster 17 year old George Brown who stepped in at the last moment when one of the competitors had to pull out on the night. Sleigh and Avil proved to be too experienced for the other team and they won 2 games to nil.
Next Year hopefully more Ladies will be available to join in - Kean wants to not have to take so many jokes about being the girl!
