Captain’s vs Chairman’s Annual Challenge Cup


The Second Annual Captains vs Chairman's Challenge Cup took place on Saturday 12th Dec. This is an annual event where the mean’s and ladies’ Captains Julian Tanner and Rachel Sutcliffe take on Dave Cross’ Chairman’s team. The game is open to all with the list of attendees then being picked in turn by either the Captains or the Chairman to represent them. The team that wins the most matches wins the overall trophy giving the chairman or the captain annual bragging rights.


Big thanks to all 54 participants who fought hard for their teams with the results being very close. Julian managed to beat Dave in their match, with ladies captain Rachel also fighting hard to win her match, which meant after 12 matches the teams were tied at 6 all. After game 23 it was still very open with the Chairman’s team enjoying a very tight 12 vs 11 lead with four matches remaining. The Chairman’s team then obviously had a very inspiring team talk from Dave Cross as they went on to win all the final 4 matches to take overall spoils 16 matches to 11 after 27 rounds and over four hours of non-stop action.


Well done to all who attended in the great day of squash. I am sure next year the captains will be looking for revenge to win the trophy back.
