COVID 19 - SECOND LOCKDOWN

It probably comes as no surprise to most, but just to confirm - England Squash has issued guidance to squash clubs, venues and coaches following the UK Government’s proposal to introduce a four-week national lockdown. Squash clubs and venues should prepare to close from this Thursday, 5 November to Wednesday, 2 December inclusive. These lockdown measures are dependent upon a House of Commons vote this Wednesday, 4 November and should it pass, squash clubs and venues are likely to be ordered to close from Thursday. We will continue to seek advice from Sport England, DCMS and other partners, and will share more news on Wednesday with guidance on the actions that clubs/venues should take.

As the 2019/2020 Winter leagues were not completed and it appears there won't be any opportunity to do so this year, we have determined the League Winners based on the latest positions as follows: 

WINNERS

 Div 1      Dulwich 1

Div 2      Tunbridge Wells SRC 2

Div 3      Beckenham 2

Div 4      Park Langley 3

Div 5      Tunbridge Wells SRC 4

Div 6      Poultwood 3

The other relegation and promotion positions were almost decided, but will be adjudicated as and when the time comes – and it will much depend on which clubs are able to participate. 

We have also decided to abandon the Cup competitions for this year.

With luck we can resume normal activity in time for some inter-club play in the near future.

Kent Junior County Squads are back!!

Through lockdown the Kent Junior Coaching team have been working together to re-format the Kent Junior Programme.

Although the existing one had been proven strong by the successes of the Kent Junior teams over the last 7 years, the team are constantly looking for ways to develop our juniors standard from grassroots to high performer.

On Sunday 20th September at the Mote and Rodmersham squash clubs the new skill groups met for the first time. The weekend attracted 48 juniors which was no mean feat as confidence levels are still low after lockdown. 

The Kent coaching team of Dinesh Bansal, Martin Clark, Steve Franks, Tom May , Tim Richards , Allam Sollimann and Zeb Young planned the sessions well and challenged the juniors provoking positive comments from parents since then.

One of the successes of the day was seeing three of our older girls electing to train with the boys groups to take on the physical challenge. Obviously they overcame this challenge as they…
