Just adding a big THANK YOU to the parents who spend countless hours (and pennies!) supporting their children at these events across the country, an amazing achievement given our geographic position in the country.
Dear Teams/Captains/Clubs, Please declare your intentions for 2018-19 to Neil or Tony by return of email or text. At this stage we just need to know the number of teams entered; LM will be up and running for player nominations at the beginning of Sept.

In Other News: ‘Big Jack’ Halford flies the Cornish Flag at the World Masters in Charlottesville, USA, and finishes in the top 8! Devonian Jon Gallagher, recent winner of the Swiss Masters Open, finishes in the top 16. ‘Little’ Jack Mahon is now up to 8 in the England U15 rankings…..at the age of 13!
Truro S&RC stalwarts Tim Smith and Neil Counter, together with ‘Big Jack’ Halford from China Fleet, entered the British Open Squash Masters event at Colets, London between 5th-10th June. This tournament is the most prestigious squash event in the World for masters players. Jack, now a fully-fledged England international and proudly wearing the famous red and white kit of his country (see photo below), did us proud again by just falling short of 3 pts in the semi-final against the eventual winner. Neil and Tim went out in the first round, Neil to the eventual winner and Tim to the England #7, but both then went on good runs in the plate. Neil just lost out in the semi whilst Tim WON IT!!!! All three deserve congrats so if you see them around be sure to tell them! Our trio flew the the flag very well indeed!
