Winchester crowned victors at Schools Invitational Squash Tournament

Surrey Sports Park recently hosted our very own Invitational Schools Squash Tournament.

With seven teams participating on the day it was a fantastic opportunity for local schools to face off in what was certain to be a highly competitive tournament.

The tournament consisted of two pools followed by semi-finals and a final, giving all players an opportunity to showcase their talents.

Charterhouse and Wincester College came top of their respective pools, Kings College and Surrey Sports Park Juniors hot on their heels.

The first semi-final between SSP Juniors and Charterhouse was one for the history books, Charterhouse narrowly losing out in a nail-biting contest.

The second semi-final was a more clear cut affair, Winchester stamping their authority with a 5-0 win over Kings.

The final between Winchester and SSP Juniors proved to be the contest that all expected it to be, both sides determined to secure the silverware.

However, Winchester eventually emerged as the victors on the day, claiming a 3-1 win over the young SSP side.

Director of Squash at Surrey Sports Park, Jesse Engelbrecht, was quick to praise all participants on the day.

“I was hugely impressed with the spirit all the matches were played in, and with such grace and sportsmanship it was an absolute honour to host the event.”

“The quality of students gracing our courts was fantastic, not only in regard to the standard of play, but also the manners and nature of the players.”
