Spencer 1st vs Reigate 2nd

Back on Track! After last week’s mauling at the hands of Bourne the first team could have spent a week licking their wounds, talking about “challenging” court conditions, dodgy marking, lucky nicks and generally feeling pretty sorry for themselves. Instead a week spent doing nothing in the sun of our brief 3 day ... More

Surrey League – Bourne 1 vs Spencer 1 – Match Report

Ouch. Our team has become pretty used to being on the winning side of fixtures, having claimed every scalp on offer up until this point. But last night didn’t go our way as we came up against a mighty strong Bourne team. On the lengthy trip home was had time to reflect on our defeat - and for Alex to figure out how ... More

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 ... 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 ...

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 ... 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. With Spencer 2 starting the day in the relegation zone of division 5R (albeit with a few games in hand and having already played the runaway league leaders), to quote Kevin Keegan before that famous ...

Surrey League – Spencer 1 vs Reigate 2 – Match Report

"Bouncebackability" - Some ten years ago Ian Dowie famously went all German and made up a new word by sticking together lots of existing ones. And it worked. So well in fact that Spencer 1st team decided to revisit the concept in a hard fought 3-1 victory against Reigate 2nds last night. Spencer had pipped Reigate to ... More

Surrey League – Spencer 1 vs Bourne 1 – Match Report

The following is an unconventional match report kindly written by Jannus, apparently applying a South African approach…! Heading off to the courts after a hard week of working and obviously trying to keep the alcohol consumption to a minimum seeing that we are going into summer. Things were not looking good from the ... More

Spencer 1 vs Knole Park 1 (“Friendly”) – Match report

They say that there are no friendly matches at international level and this proved to be the case last night as the mighty Spencer Squash Club took on the rampant Knole Park, both teams having recently gained promotions from their respective winter seasons. Knole Park turned up slightly late (as expected) and were desper... More
