Worcestershire Squash County Closed

Monday, February 7, 2022 - Posted by Spence

The weekend of 22nd & 23rd of January saw the welcome return of our Worcs County Closed following the Covid enforced cancellation in 2021.

After a very difficult 2 years for us all it was great to see many familiar faces once again in a Squash environment. It was especially encouraging to see some new faces together with a number of our County juniors taking part.

Another positive was the increase in the total number of entrants which when split over the age categories which was up on the numbers for the 2020 competition. I’m sure this makes us realise just how much we had all missed that competitive element to our Squash.

Once again, the standard of Squash was excellent over the whole weekend despite most players needing to be play several games in a day.

It was great to see all the finals being played in a competitive spirit but also in a sporting manner.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Thanks to all the organisers players, supporters, markers and helpers as your enthusiasm ensured Worcs County Squash also came out a Big Winner.

Many thanks to Bett, Spence, Arden Estate (sponsor) Brian Gurnett (referee & marking duties) and our host Stourbridge LTC and staff.

28/01/2010 - Website Speed Update - it's getting better!

The main problem with this site it the calculations needed to produce a league table - somewhere in the region 33000 calculations per table. So I did a bit of learning and moved the calculations to the database rather than the pages and now the league pages should load a lot quicker! Next will be the player stats pages as they take a long time too!
