A couple of more relaxed attempts from Giota and Jelena, and a very passable first attempt after a long Christmas break from Renae.
Anyone wanting to enter a time on Friday club nights please remind me before we get underway with the routines and games.

January 2016. A first attempt by Ayesha, a record breaking first attempt by Udi, but leading position reclaimed at the last minute by Mark Jackson in a superb final effort – see times below. Unfortunately no one recorded the final superb final effort, but the above clip will give you a good idea of how it looked, if you take off 15 seconds (that’s nearly 2 seconds per circuit – very impressive).

So congratulations to Mark Jackson, this year’s winner of the 48-shot rally challenge prize – a brand new squash racket, which will be presented at a lavish awards ceremony to be held in London’s famous glittering Old Street squash venue. Very soon.
