All welcome to this year’s AGM and pasty supper @ Truro S&RC from 7pm Wednesday 7th June. This year we are particularly focusing on changing our league management system to League Master with Squash Levels so all our team players will have a county and national ranking. We would like to thank Max Millar, one of our ex-pat county players and a product of Bude SC, who has provided our current tables and rankings over the last several years. Max will help Andy (Bodmin Dragons) to bring about this exciting change ready for the new season in September. Other ‘hot’ items include discussing GLL’s take-over of squash courts at several leisure centres around the county including Newquay, Bodmin and St Austell, together with how best we can encourage junior and grass roots participation with any ES grants we receive.

2017 Roll of Honour
Men’s Champion – Jared London Men’s R/U – Dale Diment Ladies’ Champion – Katrina Thomas Ladies’ R/U – Rachael London Men’s Plate – Tom Newberry Men’s Plate R/U – Harry Cobbley
Mackie Trophy for most Improved Player – Alex Head (Falmouth S&RC)
Gimson Plate for Squash Enthusiasm – Linda Brickell (Vice Chair CCS&RA)
Another excellent year with 32 players in the main men’s draw. Some excellent matches in the earlier rounds most notably Neil Counter V Will Tyas (2-3) and Chris Lawrance V Alex Head (3-2). The Men’s Plate was particularly strong with old Truro V Falmouth rivalry most prominent. We are looking to increase the participation in the ladies event but Katrina was a very worthy winner. The finals were very well attended with packed upper and lower galleries. Thanks were expressed by the County Committee to Truro for once again hosting a major county event.
Stop Press…..from Tim Smith!
Jack Mahon and Louis Murray, both age 11, have been selected by the England Squash panel for the u13 England Squash “ASPIRE” programme in recognition of their vast achievements and huge potential on the Squash scene regionally and nationally. This is the link programme between elite County level and England Squad selection and is a huge step forward for both young players…Jack and Louis train at Truro Squash and Truro school on a daily basis and are the outstanding products of our highly successful junior system.
