On the 30th of June 2023, Kent saw Biddenden Squash Club, 2022 winners of England Squash ‘Club of the Year’, host Kent Ladies’ first-ever inter-club Kent MATS match.

 

The club hosted 20 ladies from six different clubs, a record number coming together for the county’s first ladies Mixed Ability Team Squash match 💪🏻

 

Players from Biddenden, Rodmersham, Hythe, Poult Wood, Mote, and Hawkhurst all battled it out on court during their two sessions of nine minutes of continuous play, the idea being to score as many points for their team as possible. The biggest scorers of the match were Aimee Butler from Biddenden on 61 points, closely followed by Lottie Hill from Mote on 60 and Laura Woods from Rodmersham on 56. The winning team scored a whopping 423 points, just five more than their opponents!

 

The MATS match was organised by Katy Bridges, in Kent Squash’s newly created role of Kent Women’s Representative.  Katy’s desire is to bring women across Kent together to play more squash, recognising that there is currently a gap in Kent for women to regularly play one another.

 

The match itself saw players ranging from 73 squash levels up to 1219 and it is this difference that is the beauty of a MATS match as you get a competitive game and your score goes toward your team's total so it’s more like team squash with the excitement of a competitive match.

 

Katy brought together players as young as 12 for the MATS match, a few having represented Kent but most importantly, many having only ever played at their own club or in local tournaments.
