Roy Gingell, top international referee and WSF trainer, gave an excellent workshop on marking and refereeing. Five clubs were represented at this certificated course with a total of 16 players present. Most apparent was the way squash is now marked with less leniency in giving lets when the ball can be played. At the end there was much debate surrounding the video scenarios Roy showed which only proved what a hard job marking games can be! Thanks expressed to Phil Partridge who organised the event.

Tony, Feb 2017
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.
