Congratulations to the winners who won a signed photo from all six players in the Scotland vs RoW match this week. Runners up received the limited edition ‘heart or brain’ mug with squash goodies.
Four players won all their matches over the weekend
- Kevin Moran beating Rory Stewart in a two-court epic in the Division 1 final (the first court was too slippy after two days of play in the heat)
- Fraser Steven winning Division 2 taking out a bunch of seniors and a close-run match vs Andrew Glen
- Adam Hunter cutting through Division 3 including a clash of styles with yours truly in the final (young and fast vs old and slow).
- Michael Macari prevailing in Division 4 beating a string of higher-ranked opponents
Also some very hotly contested matches in the other divisions: Kyle Penman won Div 5 when Arun Pathal sadly had to withdraw through illness, Jamie Cargill won a close match against Hugo Hemmati in front of a big crowd; Erin Jones was very strong in Division 7, and Alex Donaldson won Division 8.
Adam Hunter won the Paul Coll-signed New Zealand flag for the best performance relative to his starting ranking. Hugo Hemmati was a close second. Thanks to Andrew Constable of Watsonians for donating this prize.
Congratulations also to the various newcomers entering one of these tournaments for the first time. All played in an excellent spirit.
Thanks also to Colinton Castle squash club for hosting the event. A very smooth operation.
