Surrey League – Spencer 1 v Wimbledon 3 – Match Report

I was first up on court playing someone who looked like they might ask some questions of my racket skills. Indeed in the first game, while I was fiddling with my sticky range dials, he played some incisive and ballsy squash to just pip me to the post. Yet while he proudly took a breather at said post titled "FIRST GAME", I winked his way and ask, "at what ... More

Surrey League – Spencer 1 vs Surbiton 3 – Match Report

Wanted - Home for house trained South Africans I'll keep this one short and sweet.  Perhaps we should have realised from the biblical weather on Thursday that Friday was going to be a pretty shitty day.  And so it was.  The real untold ramifications of Brexit is that the South African half of the first team squad are now living above court 1 to avoid ...

Surrey League – Spencer 1 vs Purley 4 – Match Report

A Festival of Sport - Spencer 1st vs Purley 4th match report - 14th June 2016 The Euros are underway, the cricket team have won the test series and even the England Rugby Union side managed to upset the Aussies in their own back yard. But in my opinion, Purley away is always a tricky match. The courts are hot, it’s a long way from Earlsfield and the ... More

Surrey League – Spencer 2 vs Sandown Park 2 – Match report

They say that points win prizes and so it was proven during last night’s delightfully close encounter where Spencer Squash Club’s second team lined up against a strong Sandown Park side who were described as “almost invincible” by our previous opponents last week. No wonder there was such a strong home team support including at one stage seven males ... More

Surrey League – Spencer 3 vs Virgin Active Surrey 4 – Match Report

Last Thursday saw Spencer 3rd's entertain Virgin Active Surrey 4th Team at the full capacity Spencer Dome. Charlie was up first in his bid to end his tortuous run of 3-2 losses. Up against him was 19 yr old child prodigy Callum. Callums warm up was intimidating, as he nonchalantly thumped the ball with ease time and time again, as charlie adopted the ... More

Surrey League – Spencer 2 vs Warlingham 1 – Match report

Some things in life are bigger than others; some squash matches are bigger than others; some people are bigger than others.
