County Closed

Please note that Junior County Closed information can be found in the Junior County Closed section.



The Bucks County Closed Championships were held at Beaconsfield Squash and Racketball Club over the weekend of 14,15,16 January 2011.

The Dashwood Trophy for Men was won for the first time by Tom Power who was in invincible form against Alex Hartley winning comfortably 3-0.

The Ladies title (The Margot Lumb Trophy) was won by Sam Mueller for the second  time beating Natalie Machin (only 15 years old) by 3-1 in the final taking one and a half hours of enthralling and exhausting squash. Two players to watch for the future are Amy Jones who is only 11 years old who won the Ladies B Grade and Ben Sheldon who is 15 who won the Mens B Grade. However for sheer endurance the prize must go to Roger Hill who not only won the Mens C Grade but also ran in a charity half marathon on Saturday as well.

Howard Machin Chairman of Bucks SRA presented the trophies and prizes to all the winners.

The results are all shown below and Howard Machin commented that 50 men and women  had competed over the weekend many of whom were juniors and that promised much for the future of squash in Bucks.
