British Open Masters Championship

England Squash is delighted to announce the British Open Masters Championship will take place at Colets Health and Fitness Club from 1st – 5th June 2016.
 
One of the premier squash clubs in the country and former winners of the European Club Championships, the centre based in Thames Ditton, Surrey offers state-of-the-art courts with glass backs. The area is a hotbed of squash and has a vibrant masters scene that is sure to embrace the return of the British Open Masters to the South East.
 
The Championships will include all age categories from the Over 35’s up to and including the Over 80’s and is sure to attract a bumper entry of both home and foreign players.
Chris Nutley, Head of Competition and Events at England Squash commented, ‘It’s great to see the return of a major squash event to the area which gives us a platform to promote the sport and tie in development programmes designed to leave a lasting legacy. It’s fantastic to have secured the support of Colets who I am sure will deliver a superb championship worthy of the British Open name.’
 
England Squash Masters Chairman Martin Pearse added, ‘England Squash Masters is delighted the British Open is to be held at Colets, and we are expecting a huge entry, particularly as it is so close to major London airports.’

Entries are now open and can be made by clicking here, or the logo above.

Glen Ragou Cup - 13 August 2016

As most of you are aware our great friend and squash player Glen Ragou passed away late last year. An annual tournament is being held in his memory, where a masters team from the “North” play a masters team from the “South”.

The first annual event on Saturday 13 August 2016 at Sutton Coldfield Squash Club. It is hoped that up to 50 players per team will enter. Each player will be paired up against an opponent of a similar standard/age.

All matches will be PAR scoring best of 5 games. There will be additional North v South competitions in the bar afterwards. This event is intended to be a social but competitive one, with the winning team presented with the Glen Ragou cup. A BBQ will be available throughout the day and the matches will be followed with food and drinks and a live band in the evening. Players are encouraged to socialise afterwards and stay over as we all know that Glen liked to play and party hard!

Apart from a great day of squash and an evening of entertainment all profits will be going to charity.

The cost for entering will be £25 and this will include a competitive game of squash, a unique North or South T-Shirt, food & then entertainment afterwards consisting of party games & a live band.
 
Can you please let the organisers, detailed below, know if you are interested in participating in this event? Information on how to enter the event and order a correct sized shirt will be sent out following receipt of an e-mail confirming your interest.

Players of the Year 2014-2015
 

Jill Campion

Jill Campion has had a remarkable Renaissance.   A long standing supporter of the Masters events she eventually had to have both hips replaced.   With great determination she embarked on a Gym and Squash regime that saw her return to top class Masters Squash and this season scoring wins over the reigning British Open and National Champion.  After wins in Regional events she won the National Championship in February beating a double World Champion in the final.  She then went on to Captain England in the Home Internationals.  An inspirational comeback. 

 

Glen Ragou

For someone to continue to play International quality Squash at the very highest level. Glen----- always chirping and with his trademark smile, whist suffering from extended serious illness, duplicated by an NHS cock up of major proportions,  in the middle of all the medical treatment inflicted on him, is an unbelievable feat. Really truly incredible. Probably with his friend Ian Bradburn, the most popular and likeable players on the Circuit.

 

Stuart Hardy

Stuart Hardy has played in nearly all the Masters events since they started but has had a remarkable season.   After reaching the 2014 British Open Final he went on to win four International Open Championships - Germany, Wales, Holland and the USA, as well as three English Regional titles.   He has in fact been a finalist ten times out of the  last eleven Regionals he has played.  On top of that he has been active with the Masters committee and driven a number of initiatives such as promotional shirts and international kit.
