Corporate squash league serves up excitement

Samantha Henning and Jade Pitcairn brought the excitement during week 1 action


The Bakertilly Corporate Squash League recommenced on Thursday 30 July, 2020 at the South Sound Squash Club and although the defending champs Bakertilly have come out swinging, the handy guys from Phoenix showed they are up to the challenge leading the charge with 135 points.

There has been a small change in match play. Previously, teams gained points for the games they won; however, this season the overall scores are based on points won by individuals and the 3rd game played on a 3-minute clock.

This makes play more exciting and competitive as every point count! This was proven in the A

Division matchup between the only ladies’ match of the night between Samantha Hennings of Genesis Trust and Jade Pitcairn of Phoenix. The match was well contested, both matching each other shot for shot and point for point, it was evident that no one wanted to give anything away. The match went to 3 games with a 3-point difference in score going to the ultimate winner, Jade, 35-32. This contest was the match of the night!

It is always good to witness matches of these kinds as in competition the spotlight often goes to the best players.

Ricard Reading, representative of the league sponsors, Bakertilly stated “It is fun and refreshing to have squash and the club back and we look forward to next week”.

Play continues this and every Thursday at 5:45pm, with playoffs and finals on 3 September 2020.
