2019 Club Championship

Padgett wins with an exciting comeback!!

The Annual Squash Club Championship Final took place on Thursday 12th December 2019 and was a superb advert for the sport between two of our best players Paul Norton and Nick Padgett.

The match got underway with Paul taking a commanding lead playing some unplayable squash full of good length and an accurate short game and quickly took the first game 9-0. It was much the same in the second with Paul taking a 5- 0 lead but after a long rally Nick began to fight back and wore Paul down with some excellent squash moving Paul about the four corners of the court and taking the game 9 6. Nick then began to take control and played some beautiful points full of patience and precision in the 3rd game to take it 9-2. The 4th game was a seesaw affair early on with Paul showing real fight and Nick putting up wonderful defence. Gradually however, Nick continued to pressure Paul and he began to go for too much with his shots and with Nick attacking constantly the writing was on the wall and Nick took the game and the Championship 9- 4.

Both men played with great skill and a fantastic sporting attitude and never once questioned referee Martin Shaw who handled the match with aplomb, although he was the first to comment on the first – class sportsmanship shown by both players – good mates but keen competitors. This excellent example of squash at its best should have been witnessed by a larger crowd and I hope the next Championship is better supported. My congratulations to both players and in particular to Nick - a fitting champion.
