My 2013 West Masters

December 10, 2013 Leave a comment

Another great West Masters and some fantastic Squash to see, from the winners Mark Ford, Peter Buchan, Mark James, Chris Holt, Robin Ridley, John Howie, Iain Ross, Vincent Taylor & Eunice Bond

Emilio Fazzi ably directed the tournament again this year (his last year in charge) and the two days ran as smoothly as ever.

I played the Over 40s tournament and initially found it strange playing the old ‘Hi-Ho’ system of scoring, but you soon get used to it again.

However it’s the camaraderie that is the focal point of the Masters squash for me. It’s great to return every time and still you know most people there and spend the 2 days not only playing some tough games, but renewing acquaintances and friendships.

Could do with it being over a week though – with rest days in-between!
