Mary Scott-Miller

by Alan Thatcher

12237413900?profile=RESIZE_400x

Kent Squash has lost one of its most loyal and distinguished servants following the sad passing of Mary Scott-Miller.

Mary served the Kent SRA as county development officer and junior girls’ organiser and was also renowned as an international-standard referee.

She introduced hundreds of girls to the sport, including the current Commonwealth Games women’s singles champion, Gina Kennedy.

Mary and her husband, Alan, were members of Tunbridge Wells Squash Club.

 

As a referee, Mary officiated at numerous world-ranking tournaments, including the Commonwealth Games and British Open, and was a solid supporter of the Kent Open Championships when it moved to Tunbridge Wells.

Colin Payne Kent Open 2023 Sponsored by 501 Fun

Owain Taylor and Torrie Malik take Kent Open titles

KENT OPEN FINALS

BY ALAN THATCHER

Owain Taylor and Torrie Malik are the 501 Fun Kent Open champions after two high quality finals.

After a week of superb squash featuring players from 16 nations we ended up with two all-British finals in front of a packed gallery at Tunbridge Wells Squash Club.

Home hero Noah Meredith played superbly but was unable to deliver another giant-killing act as Welsh international Taylor controlled the fifth game of a pulsating battle to clinch victory with a scoreline of 10-12, 11-6, 11-8, 10-12, 11-5.

In a tournament sponsored by Meredith’s Tunbridge Wells team-mate Jonny Powell, owner of 501 Fun, and dedicated to former Kent and England player Colin Payne, Meredith had taken out top seed Valentin Rapp (Germany) and No.3 seed Temwa Chileshe (New Zealand).

But despite Meredith showing plenty of the attacking skills that earned him two…
