Wolverhampton hosts 191 players in the Karakal West of England Squash Masters 2023-24

5th January 2024

Wolverhampton hosts 191 players in the Karakal West of England Squash Masters 2023-24 The Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club (WLTSC) is set to host the prestigious Karakal West of England Squash Masters 2023-24, from Friday 12th January to Sunday 14th January 2024. The squash tournament features 191 competitors across 14 age categories and promises an exciting display of talent and sportsmanship as players converge to vie for top honours.

The Karakal West of England Masters has established itself as a key fixture in the squash calendar, attracting seasoned players aged 35 and above from all corners of the UK. The tournament aims to foster inclusivity and encourage participation at all skill levels within this age group, contributing to the growth and vibrancy of squash communities across the nation.

“We’re thrilled to be hosting the Karakal West of England Masters once again at the Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club,” said Mike Harris, Head of Squash and Racketball at WLTSC. “This tournament not only showcases the talent of our own members, with 13 players representing the club (including myself!), but also brings together competitors from across the UK, adding a unique dynamic to the matches.”

Players will battle it out on the six state-of-the-art courts at WLTSC, with the hope of securing victory and, for some, the opportunity to represent England in international matches.

“We believe in not only providing a platform for our players to showcase their skills but also in offering them the chance to elevate their game to new heights on the international stage, representing their home nation” added Mike Harris.

Spectators are encouraged to join the excitement at WLTSC, witnessing thrilling and highly competitive matches unfold throughout the weekend from 2pm on Friday. Free to attend, the club extends a warm invitation to squash enthusiasts and the local community to come and support the participants, making this event a memorable experience for both players and spectators alike.

WLTSC pride for member Henry Searleโ€™s record-breaking Wimbledon win!

WLTSC pride for member Henry Searleโ€™s record-breaking Wimbledon win!


WOW! What a week we had last week! One of our members, Henry Searle, who began playing tennis at Tots Tennis when he was 2 years old, WON the Wimbledon Boys Singles title and we couldnโ€™t be more proud!

The week started off with Henry knocking out top seed Juan Carlos Prado Angelo, winning 7-6, 6-3! And so, our crazy week began!

This win was covered in the Sun Newspaper on Monday, who called Henry, a โ€˜Wolverhampton Wonderkidโ€™ benefiting from his โ€˜barmy armyโ€™ of supporters. This core group with others joining on different days, demonstrated the amount of pride and support WLTSC has for Henry and his achievements.

On Tuesday, our Head of Tennis, Max Thomson, was interviewed live on Radio WM from our beautiful patio, overlooking the tennis courts. Then on Wednesday, The Express & Star visited to celebrate Henry reaching the quarter finals, played on Thursday. Watching the quarter finals on iPlayer and listening to well-known tennis players and presenters, Andrew Castle, John Lloyd and Clare Balding, speaking so highly about one of our members made everyone feel incredibly proud. However, it wasnโ€™t just Henry receiving the attention of the commentators, but his Barmy Army of supporters who featured a lot during the match and in an interview given by Henry in the following days!

In true British weather style, โ€˜rain stopped playโ€™ for the semi-finals on Friday but this didnโ€™t dampen our spirits at the club with lots of โ€˜good luckโ€™ video messages been shared, more coverage in the Express & Star and a general excitement from members around the club, waiting to show their support up in the bar!

Finally, the wait was over, and Henry played his semi final on a very blustery Saturday. With the Barmy Army supporters at Wimbledon and the supporters filling the bar at the club, it was time to play! A tense set included a contentious point when Cooper Williams, his 4th seed opponent, hat blew off in the wind. Unlike the weather and his supporters, Henry was calm and controlled, winning the first set 7-6 and then the second, 6-3 becoming the first British boy to reach the final of Wimbledon since Jack Draper in 2018.

The atmosphere at the club was incredible and the cheers drowning out the Barmy Armyโ€™s cheers from the TV!ย  The celebrations and good luck messages continued on social media and WhatsApp groups, including a recorded message via Twitter, from Wolverhampton Wanderers Manager Julen Lopetegui, which only added to excitement as we all waited for finals day!

Sunday 16th July 2023, the day club member Henry Searle, reached the Wimbledon Boys singles final. Some members were lucky to get tickets and had an early start to get there to add to the on-court support! The club ran its annual Wimbledon Whites tennis tournament in the morning finishing in time to join both BBC & ITV news (there to cover this momentous game) and other members gathered in the bar, to see Henry step out onto Court 1.

The Barmy Army sat in Court 1, had grown in numbers and were all wearing supportive T-shirts, and the home crowd in the First Serve bar, were all very vocal throughout the match, cheering all and EveryPoint WLTSCโ€™s tennis academy name!) of the games. The roof was nearly โ€˜cheeredโ€™ off as Henry took the 1st set 6-4 and then again, serving for the match to WIN the Boys Singles title 6-4 in the second set! ย In that moment, Henry became the first British boy to win the Wimbledon Boys Singles since 1962 and WLTSC had its first home-grown Wimbledon champion!

While we celebrate the success of Henry who is based at Loughborough University National Tennis Academy, we also celebrate our club and all we offer members. It is not only 15 tennis courts (including 3 grass) that we have, but also 6 squash courts and 2 gym areas including spin bikes. Both tennis and squash & racketball offer junior programmes, school camps, adult programmes, internal and external tournaments, to provide every member with a sport or fitness regime to suit their requirement.

If you would like to become a member of our club and experience all we offer, why not contact us to come and have a look around.

A big part of the WLTSC community is the inclusivity we pride ourselves on and the many activities open to all abilities at the club.
Following a previous post of WLTSC with Wolves, the images featured a frequent junior WLTSC visitor that deserves to be showcased.

Emily joined our mini red tennis sessions and took part in wheelchair tennis with a wheelchair that was kindly donated by the LTA. She underwent a number of weeks at WLTSC, improving on her tennis journey.
In addition, Emily was chosen by Wolves to be the โ€œdisability mattersโ€ representative and recently a mascot for the Wolves at Leicester away game. Having been a Wolves season ticket holder since she was a toddler, the club wanted to celebrate how she has overcome the many difficulties and challenges that she has had. She met all the players, including her favourite Neves, and led the team out.
“WLTSC did so much for her and were all so kind to her.”-Emily’s mom, Mel.

As a key part of the local Wolverhampton Community, we have always had great admiration for our successful home team. WLTSC often finds itself in a position of great links with Wolves and below is just some of the many recent success stories weโ€™ve had the pleasure to share with you:
  • ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น ๐——๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—บ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ– Junior member Donell proudly waved the flag for Wolves as a match mascot during the Wolves awayย  ย  ย game against Leicester City at the King Power stadium. Although not the results the fans had hoped for that day, we hope Donell had a great day getting a first-hand experience of the buzz of a Wolves away game and getting chance to grab a high five with a local fan favourite Rรบben Neves!
  • ๐—”๐—ป๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜„– A longstanding member of WLTSC Anne Crawshaw was invited to be the recipient in receiving a Wolves shirt during a special presentation in recognition of her late father Bert Williams. Bert had hit an astonishing 420 caps for Wolves and at the time of his death was the oldest living England international! Both Anne and Amber (below) attended the special evening with both earning special recognition.
  • ๐—”๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—™๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„๐˜€– Our very own Tennis coach Amber Fellows has successfully made over 300 appearances on behalf of Wolves women! Herself and both former and current players who have made this honourable milestone were privileged to have been invited along to attend a Wolves 300 club event. During the event Amber was presented with her own named plaque upon a coveted honours board. Well done Ambs, amazing achievement!
After a special unveiling event last week, the 300 Club board featuring both Amber Fellows and Bert Williams now has a permanent home at Molineux!
