Tring Squash Club’s first Bronze Masters Tournament took place in the heatwave of Friday evening of 8th to Saturday 9th September. 47 players took part in 8 events from Over 35 to Over 70/75. The tournament brought a real buzz to the Club who were pleased to host the event.

Charles Lefevre, a fully qualified marker and regular expert presence at England Squash Masters Regional and National events was the tournament director and superbly co-ordinated the club’s volunteers to put on an excellent event. ESM Event Manager Brian Brock’s expertise and proven software meant the event was very slick and ran smoothly.

Tring is situated close to the county boundaries of Herts, Beds, And Bucks hence the name ‘The 3 Counties Squash Masters’. Tring has four courts, over 350 playing members, a spacious viewing gallery, a bar and most importantly a kitchen from which Barbara Lefevre provided sustenance for the competitors over the weekend.

Even in this inaugural year, over 40% of the participants were Regional event regulars. The standard was extremely high, played in the highest level of good humour and sportsmanship, in front of enthusiastic spectators.

The club was pleased to see several club members taking part and club members Richard Carr and Iain Digby contesting the MO55 title. Tring Squash Club looks forward to hosting future events.

Mark Bullard
Chairman Tring Squash Club
