COVID Can't Stop Wiltshire Squash

The first Wiltshire Squash Box League Bubbles provided super close competition across all leagues.

In Div1 Calli Smith came out on top by 2 points from Nigel Row. Despite two maximums, Will Kingwell was a further 3 points behind. Proving how close the games were, one of the favourites to top the box Adam Giles could not post a 33 and ended up 4th!

Div 2 was also very close, Simon Lucus gains the promotion to Div1 with just one maximum 33. Damian Smith missed out by just two points despite two maximums. Less than 10 points separated the rest of the players in the Div2 box – great competition!

Div 3 Jonny Carne scored a maximum in all his games but was still only 11 points ahead of Gary Preston. Alan Grace and Mike Hyland played out a 32 to 29 ding dong battle, with good scores across all matches, but were some way short of the Carne and Preston totals.

Div 4 Mike Stannard dominated the box dropping just 2 points from a maximum total. Ben Taylor posted two maximums and was a clear second. The rest had good friendly games, but clearly need more practice!

Div 5 Ben Thompson gets the promotion in a box that had a few hiccups, but I understand all was taken in good spirit and was enjoyed by all.

Many thanks for everyone’s patience and adherence to COVID rules. All In all, good games, clear sportsmanship, and a great start to the ‘Wiltshire Squash Box League Bubbles’. There was strong feedback in favour of the format, but any suggestions for improvement are welcome.

Huge thanks to Wessex Squash Club in Swindon for hosting the Leagues in difficult circumstances.
