AGM HENDRA HALL, TRURO 22/5/18 What’s new for next season 2018-19:
- Playing Up – 3 times per half, so 6 per full season, a doubling of the previous ruling!
- This will facilitate new teams forming in our main clubs…….can we reach 15 teams making the ideal of three divisions of 5 possible again???
- Increase in player fee from £5 to £10 – the first increase in several years! Extra income to cover extra costs and falling revenue….
- Falmouth Club to host a Racketball Champs before Xmas and Super Saturday in May 19.
- The benefits of England Squash membership to be promoted to all league players…..
- A county-wide ‘squash healthcheck’ audit to take place Sept.-Dec 2018….
- New ‘Club Link’ CCSRA Committee members voted in so all six clubs are represented…..
The meeting was well attended this year and so a lot was discussed. The minutes will be posted as soon as we are able so you can see the fine detail……
Truro win an exciting Pawle Cup Final 3-2 against a talented Falmouth side. The result hinged on the titanic battle between the #2 strings, George and Jonny, with the Truro player taking it in an extremely tight fifth. Falmouth won at #1 and #3 in the closest cup final in years. In the Hine Plate, Bodmin won 3-2 with comfortable wins at #1, #2 and #3 against a spirited Bude SC.
Pawle Cup Final: Truro 3 V Falmouth 2
Hine Plate Final: Bodmin Dragons 3 V Bude 2

A fitting climax to a great season and with many thanks to the Truro Club for hosting the event.
Jared & Katy, 2018 CHAMPIONS!
Six players from Cornwall entered the S of England Squash Masters at Winchester over the weekend recording a combined three wins with standout performer Jack Halford (China Fleet) reaching the QF only to go out narrowly 3-2 to the eventual winner in the tightest of matches. Surely Jack will get an England cap soon. Unfortunately, Tony and Jon pulled out due to injury from last weekend’s Cornwall Masters but Tim and Neil did us proud with two very impressive first round victories. Also flying the gold and black was Roger who also plays at Kennilworth S&RC. The Cornish certainly made their presence felt and are now well known on the circuit. Exeter is the venue for the W of England Masters on 5th and 6th January – you can enter via the http://www.englandsquashmasters.co.uk/ website.

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.
