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.

2012 US Open

October 3, 2012 1 comment

The World No.1 & 2 crashed out in the semi-finals of the men’s US Open to leave the door open for either Ramy or Gregory G to take the 2012 title.

Ramy Ashour beat Nick Matthew 3-1 and Gregory Gaultier beat James Willstrop 3-0 in the semi-finals. And with tough match after tough match taking its toll on the top seeds, it showed that when you’re not 100% against this quality of opposition they can take full advantage with wonderful shot play.

The final itself was dominated by Ramy, winning his 1st US Open title in three straight games, as the Frenchman had no answer to his speed and control  (11-4  11-9  11-9).

In the WISPA event Nicol David took the title from the young pretender Raneem El Weleily to win the her first US Open. In-so-doing she established a new record of titles by winning her 63rd final (beating Sarah Fitz Gerald’s previous record).

British Grand Prix Squash Final 2012 – James Wilstrop v Nick Matthew

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

The world ranked No.1 & No.2 met in the 2012 British Grand Prix Final.

In the top half of the draw James Wilstrop just edged Gregory Gaultier to take his final spot, after a really tough 118 minute semi-final in Manchester’s $70K Springfield Solutions Tournament.

In the other half of the draw Nick Matthew beat Peter Barker 3-0 in 48 minutes, so with the easier game Nick was favourite for the final (despite being the No.2 seed) and so it transpired as he won the title 3-1 (4-11 11-6 11-9 11-6)

Harrow’s new signing Adrian Grant (PSA World ranked No.15)  lost in the quarter finals to No.4 seed and world No.7 Peter Baker (and Harrow’s other new signing Chris Simpson qualified for the 1st round before losing to Alister Walker in 57 mins).
