Disappointment for Brave Hannah

A record breaking entry of 126 players descended on Bishop's Stortford Squash Club in Hertfordshire for a great weekend of Squash that would decide the 10 Championship and 7 Plate titles on offer. Everyone seemed to have a superb weekend and as expected some of the squash on display was first class. There were a number of outstanding performers throughout the weekend that deserve great credit but special mention must go to Ritchie Fallows, Charlie Green, Anna Kimberley, Grace Gear and Elise Lazarus who all managed to win their respective draws without dropping a single game.

As published on Friday, our own Hannah Stevens entered for the first time and her first round opponent was Rosemary Luscombe who plays out of Tring squash club.  Hannah put in a valiant effort but Rosemary's greater experience and UK ranking of 45 took her through to a  3-0 victory.

In her plate match, Hannah started very nervously, but began to grow into the match, sadly for her in the first game it was too late and, despite saving three game points, lost the first. The second was much more tightly contested, but sadly Hannah lost it 12-10 in the tie-break. That seemed to break Hannah's spirit somewhat and she struggled to find any rhythm in the third and bowed out.

Hannah said, "I really enjoyed that despite the results and I am looking forward to my next tournament"

This was the first time Hannah had entered a tournament as big as this and she deserves a tremendous amount of credit for her efforts and she didn't let her supporters, who had travelled from Luton, in the gallery down

The Regional Closed serves as a great curtain-raiser for the season ahead and everyone at the East Region Office would like to wish everyone that took part the very best of luck for coming year.

Huge thanks must go to all the players and their parents for supporting the event, everyone at Bishop's Stortford for helping it to run so smoothly and to our team of Markers who worked tirelessly all weekend.
