Nottingham Squash Club – a new year …

The PSL team from ‘my’ Squash Club finished 2013 well. We were just a place behind the play of spots in the ‘premier league’ of Squash. If you had offered me that at the start of the season, I would have taken it!


But last week was a trip to London – our furthest opponents in the league. And they were after blood (we took them by surprise early in the season when, on paper, they should have won). This was ‘grudge’ stuff.

They came out on top. They won the fixture 3-2 – but we put up a great fight (the report is here) Our next fixtures at home are on 18 February and 18 March – the latter might see the World Champion, Nick Matthew playing at the club.

Last year was a tough year for the Club, but we seem to be back on the straight and narrow. We have some new members of late and the club has a real buzz about it. 2014 will see us host the European Club Championships – where we are expecting several hundred visitors from around Europe competing for the title European Club Champions. We last hosted a Europe-wide competition 10 years ago!

But this blog, other than a brief update about the team) is a shameless plug. The club is holding an Open Day next Saturday – 18th January – between 3pm and 6pm – there’s kids sessions, adult sessions, a racket ball demonstration and a doubles demonstration! If you are interested and are around Nottingham – please pop in to say hello. We are having some great membership offers on the day too!
