Newport SRC summer league update

Newport SRC is again playing host to a summer leagues season open to members of the club and other Gwent based players. Its a handicapped affair which ensures parity of play and some very lengthy games!

Competition is hotting up after two rounds with the Allstars led by Abby Hicks just edging a lead over the ‘Port. Stand out encounter last night saw Lewis Poole tussle with John Proctor. Lewis’s handicap was minus 40 to John’s minus 28, netting John a twelve point advantage in each set. Despite this and despite excellent retrieval work from John, Lewis ran out eventual winner in straight sets but not before some truly excellent squash from both players.

Thanks to Greg Tippings for organising and its great to see so many players from around Gwent taking part in competitive squash in the off season.
