Squash comp wrapped up until new year

SQUASH: It was a competitive game of squash on Tuesday night as the grand final brought all players to the courts.

It was a successful year for the club with several players competing in state and national titles.

President Trevor Harvey said despite some players dropping from the team throughout the year, all competitions were played to the highest level.

"The club ran two successful six team competitions during the year,” Harvey said.

"Unfortunately the numbers dropped off in the second competition and there was four players per team, the club also had successes away from home.”

Harvey said the club sent several players to Bundaberg to compete and placed very highly in each category.

"We sent two teams to the Rum City Teams titles with out top team easily winning division 3 and our second team coming mid-field in division 6,” he said.

"The club regained the inter-club trophy which is played annually between Mundubbera and Stafford Squash clubs.”

For Harvey himself, competing in the Queensland Masters was one of the highlights.

"On the personal front I've continued to play in the Queensland Masters tournament and also travelled to play in many other tournaments this year,” he said.

Harvey competed at the Pan Pacific Games at the Gold Coast and won the silver medal. He competed at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand and finished sixth in singles and won a bronze medal in the teams event.

Harvey also competed and won gold at the Australian Masters Games in Davenport, Tasmania.

The squash club is holding social squash nights every Tuesday from 6pm until the first competition for 2018 commences in late January.

Everyone is welcome to attend the training sessions.
