Squash and Racketball
Squash has been really buoyant down at the courts – leagues are being played, competitions entered and hotly contested, friendlies are competitively played, mix-ins and courses are well attended and the matches are fiercely battled. We now have 5 teams in the Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire leagues, playing a great standard of squash and giving lots of our club players the opportunity to play different teams from across the various counties.
What a hive of activity, and this is just the adults!
WLTSC vs POLICE
On Friday the 4th and 5th of February, our men’s, women’s and veteran’s team competed against the police squash team.
Men’s team: WLTSC lost 2-3
Women’s team: WLTSC Won 4-1

Congratulations to our players as all teams performed amazingly and a huge thank you to everyone who came down to support, to Mike Harris for organising the event and to our catering team who looked after everyone.
We had a fantastic weekend of squash with an awesome police team. We look forward to welcoming them again in the future.
