We had a whopping 30 players in our first ladies’ squash tournament at Finsbury Leisure Centre, London. We had 3 divisions (Division 1 Middlesex League players, Division 2 lower club and university players and Division 3 - less experienced and beginners). The objective of the tournament was to give ladies an opportunity to play and meet other female players of similar standard.

The reception and prize-giving afterwards gave everybody more time for some socialising and relaxing after a full day of squash. Prizes included two squash rackets and a squash bag sponsored by Sweatband, a 12-month gym membership by Aquaterra, trophies for the winners and runners-up of each division as well as a trophy for the most gracious player (voted for by the players) sponsored by ESR  and a couple of coaching sessions. There was also a raffle for a racket sponsored by Lester Cantem. Each player also received an ESR goody bag.

Trophies went to: Division 1 - Winner: Anoushka Wooller, Runner-up: Rosa Rius Division 2 – Winner: Alina EE, Runner-up : Jenny Sharpe Division 3 – Winner: Rebecca Jones, Runner-up : Ali Dale

Encouraged by the success of this tournament we will be looking at holding another one in Spring 2013.
