Luton and Dunstable Squash Club (LDS) entered two teams into the annual London Squash Festival which sees teams compete against each other in various box league divisions over the weekend.
The points system included the number of games won by an individual within a half an hour time frame against their respective opponent.
LDS 1st team finished the weekend in a highly respectable 2nd place in Division 2 whilst the LDS 2nd team finished 4th in Division 3.
LDS 1st team won all their box league games to top their group before playing Bexley 2 in the final. LDS 1sts were extremely unlucky not to come first as they were defeated 3-2 in the final, with the final game being decided on which player was ahead on points.
LDS 2nd team came 4th in division 3 and whilst there were some valiant efforts over the course of the weekend, including one win and two defeats in the box league, the 3rd v 4th place play off proved a battle they could not overcome.
There were some enthralling and epic battles over the weekend and the camaraderie in the two teams were fantastic to see. LDS thanks all players that took part and in particular their families who supported them over the weekend. We hope to enter more teams in similar events in the future.
