Willstrop v Selby @ TSRC AN EPIC BATTLE OF BRITAIN!

Ex2018Dec1Last Friday Truro school and Truro Squash club were privileged to receive two of England’s best ever Squash players to this hub of Squash activity. James Willstrop is the former World No 1, the European and the current Commonwealth champion. Daryl Selby is the former World no 9, World team champion and Commonwealth silver medallist. They are the top two British ranked players and still occupy positions at the very top of the World ranking system. These professionals have amassed nearly 300 England caps between them and are part of our Golden Generation of home-grown global Squash stars. The visit began with an exciting masterclass at Truro school where they showed their skills and abilities to 30 of our rising Squash pupils and even brought their medals to inspire our fast developing youngsters. Truro school is challenging very hard for the National Schools Squash title, and this pro-session will only encourage our talented players even further in their bid to bring back the title. We then transferred to Truro Squash club for further junior training followed by “The Battle of Britain” challenge match between the Pros. The evening saw a sold-out auditorium enthralled and entertained by the speed, dexterity and awesome determination of the players to earn pre-Xmas bragging rights. In the event the match went to a full five sets with James sneaking the win 12/10 in the decider. At the end of the proceedings James and Daryl expressed how impressed they were with the school and club and the depth of our junior talent pool here in Truro. We have superb facilities, a healthy school and club coaching structure and both internal and County-wide events and leagues throughout the entire season.
