Doubles Squash/Double Trouble/Double Vision!   Get ready for a double helping of intense sporting action!   Doubles Squash puts four players in an enclosed space and challenges them to show off their skills.   Players don’t just have to keep one step ahead of their opponents; they have to work in perfect tandem with their partner; anticipating, reacting and perfectly positioning every shot. The court is over 2 metres wider than a Singles court and the players use every inch of it.   They go up high, down low, and lunge in every direction as they hunt down points. Teamwork is everything and the action doesn’t let up, not even for a moment.   In Doubles Squash, the pressure is shared, but so is the joy of victory.

2104 British Open

This was the ‘match of the tournament’ but neither player went on to win the tournament! The 102 minute semi final was an amazing contest, but Gregory Gaultier took the title by beating Nick in the final.

Racketball 2014 – Saltire Tour Dates Announced

New Canada Lands – Glasgow v Canada Match April 2014!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A Canadian Touring side came to Scotland for a 2 week squash tour of the country and their first stop was Glasgow’s Newlands for a 10-a-side friendly match (well as friendly as these things get on court!).

The tourists won a hard fought contest with a team of Rex, Brad, Zack, Tyler, Ethan, Francois, Jean-Cristophe and other great Canadian names! We (Newlands) were captained by Mandy Nicol and the team line-up included me, Pete Cumine, John Singh, Graeme Marshall, Iain Donellan, Pete Cumine (sen), Bernard Dunn, Colin McIntyre among others.

It was a great match up and the apres-squash was as good as the match – we even took them to the West Squash End Of Season Presentation night at Giffnock (where Craig Brown was the guest speaker).

Squash touring is the future in my book! Right who’s up for the  return?
