Grantham Squash Rackets Club held its annual open doubles competition which attracted their largest number of entrants, from Pontefract to Cambridge, all male and mixed teams totalling 100 people, and who all enjoyed a very competitive day’s squash.

Grantham were well represented, making up nearly half the total but unfortunately this year were unable to win in any of the categories.

The main A event was won by Phil Scully and Daniel Busby from Chesterfield who beat local pro Martin Gibson and his partner Russel Watkins in a tight and thrilling game.

The B event runners-up were from Grantham – Graeme Williamson and Ray Measures – with winners from Lincoln – Richard Ashby and Ollie Adams.

Metheringham were well represented with an all-Metheringham final in the C event.

The mixed event gave Grantham Squash Club the greatest chance of success with most teams representing the home club, but unfortunately it was won by Tony Gay and Reka Burmeister from Cambridge (Tony was one of the sponsors of this year’s event).

The only Grantham pair to be awarded a prize was another of the tournament sponsors, Paul Skelton and his wife Sarah from Axis45; this was for sheer endeavour throughout the day.

Club chairman Simon Loveridge thanked all involved in the organisation of the day, the players for travelling so far, and a special thank you was given to organiser Martin Gibson and to the other sponsors –

Jackson Buildbase (main sponsor), PT & R Insurance, Harrow and Kentbridge Sports.
