Finsbury Leisure Ladies Squash Tournament

The 2014 Finsbury Leisure Ladies Squash Tournament was held on 5th July.

Entries were received from clubs all over London, and we were pleasantly surprised to receive late entries from previous organisers of the tournament, now resident in Poland, Retha Jacobs (who went on to win the A group prize), and Kara Wszolek.

Special guests were Alison Waters, currently Ladies World No. 4, and Paul Carter, ESR High Performance Coach.

Alison and Paul gave demonstrations of her coaching routines, held coaching workshops with small groups on court and held a Q and A session with the enthusiastic group of ladies.

There were many hard fought matches in all categories, especially in the A group, in which the players each had to play five matches in a very hectic schedule.

Many thanks to Finsbury Leisure Head Squash Coach and Sponsor Lester Cantem.
