Richmond secures primary school’s championship
Published 17/03/14



HENLEY Junior Squash Club held its annual championship last weekend with separate competitions for primary and secondary school players.

The preliminary rounds consisted of a series of round-robin matches in which all players played at least six matches, followed by the finals and third/fourth place play-offs.

The final of the primary school aged competition was the best out of three games. It saw some good play between Beth Ireland and Rory Richmond, who are both county players and in the top 30 nationally.

The first game was close with Richmond just winning it 11-9 after the lead had see-sawed between the two players. Richmond raced into an early 5-0 lead in the second before Ireland fought back, but eventually ran out of steam with Richmond taking the game 11-5 to win the championship.

The third/fourth place play-off saw Jack Lynskey and James Dunning keeping the audience entertained. Lynskey eventually ran out 11-7, 6-11, 11-7 winner.


There was a similarly close result in the third/fourth place play-off in the secondary school competition with Danny Clifford beating Art Lawton 11-4, 5-11, 11-7, 11-6. The final between Jake Ireland and Andrew Tonkinson, both players in the senior club’s leagues, had to be cancelled as Tonkinson had to withdraw from the final with a foot injury.

Prizes were awarded by the senior club’s chairman, Duncan Nightingale. Speaking after the finals Nightingale said: “It is wonderful to see the high quality of the juniors’ shots and match play.

“The future of the club is definitely in good hands since the club’s juniors are already coming through into the adult leagues and teams.”
