A huge well done to all competitors and a massive thank you to Mike Harris and the squash and racketball committee for organising a superb tournament.
The tournament ran for three days, with the finals across a variety of age groups on Sunday, November 6.
The event comes after the success of team England on the international stage at the Commonwealth Games, where they won five medals, and now WLTSC hosted this regional tournament to give players from different backgrounds the opportunity to play competitive squash.
The age categories ranged between 35-75 for men and 30-60 for women.
Helen Tottey, director of squash and racketball at WLTSC, said the competition was a ‘great success and added that the standard of the play was ‘very competitive’.
WOW! Did you hear Sports Manager Marc Hughes on Radio WM, speaking with Natalie Graham on #wellbeingwednesday last month?
The importance of personal wellbeing was discussed, not only coming from playing squash &, racketball, tennis; working out in the gym or taking part in one of the numerous gym/spin classes on offer at WLTSC, but also from the social benefits of the community of like-minded people coming together, often making life-long friendships. Listen from 1.33 to hear the full 10minutes.
WLTSC opens its doors to children to stoke excitement ahead of Commonwealth Games. Last summer, a year before the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, organisers announced that they wanted to give one million children an authentic Games experience.
On Friday, the Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis and Squash Club fulfilled that dream and opened its doors to schools and members of the local community to get them involved in six sports which will take pride of place at the Games.
Children from seven schools got the run of the club until 2pm, where they got to try out squash, boxing, wrestling, wheelchair basketball, table tennis, and archery.
