Last summer we ended on 107 points for and 118 against. This summer was uncannily similar with 111 points for and 128 against; 7 wins and 9 defeats.
Whilst we have finished the season there are a few matches still not entered/played so I’m not sure if we will end up 3rd as we currently stand.
Latest league is below:
Results for the summer season were as follows:
Individual records were as follows:
Thanks to all 10 of you for turning out and trying your best.
Match fees £585.00 (including £35 outstanding no names mentioned!)

Subs for 2019-20 are £120 for adult membership, £80 for students over 18 and £140 for family membership (2 adults + 2 children; additional children £10 each). Payment can be made by cash, cheque or card at the bar or alternatively by direct debit. Subs form a large part of the clubs income and therefore please make every effort to pay by the end of this month. I attach membership form and there are plenty in the bar. These need completing for all members, new and renewing.
Friday saw the final of the Club Championship with Owen Ledger taking on Jay Ledger. A good crowd of around 25 saw some excellent squash with Owen taking a tight first game 15-12. Owen then proceeded to take the next two games 15-7 and 15-8 to retain the Championship. Well played Owen! Thanks to Marcus for marking and more importantly to Sam for sorting the sausages when inclement weather scuppered the BBQ plans.
Club Night - Friday 4th October
Next club night will be Friday 4th October when we aim to host the final of ‘B’ Championship and Over 55s final. Get the date in your diary, further details will follow.
3 fixtures remain in the summer league and currently we are played 15 won 7 lost 8. Our last 8 matches have been 2-1 either way reflecting the close nature of the league.
If anyone who has not played Team squash for Biggleswade is interested in playing team squash going forward please let me know and we can have a chat about it.
Maintenance - September 21st to September 28th
As a members’ club we rely largely on voluntary efforts to keep the club operating smoothly. September 21st to September 28th we will be looking to carry out maintenance on courts and also changing/toilet facilities. Further details will follow but if everyone can volunteer a couple of hours it would help.
World Squash Day - Saturday 12th October
Saturday 12th October is World Squash Day and we will be opening the club up to try to encourage people to take up squash. Plans are still to be finalised but we will need members to help on the day so please put the date in your diary.
Details for the Handicap competition will appear in the next month or so. For all members who have not participated in this competition before it is highly recommended as offers an opportunity to play other members you don’t normally play against.
Final trials of the online booking system are taking place. Further details will be announced in due course with Go Live imminent!
