Thank you.


A good time was had by all who attended the Consett Squash Club Christmas party last week, great to see so many members come together for the festivities.

A BIG thank you to Mandy Tellyn (Social Secretary) for organising it all and thanks to Colin Mcpherson (Secretary) for arranging the venue and manning the pumps! who says blokes can’t multi-task?



The Northumberland club will play host to the first stage of the British Universities Premier league on the weekend of the 10/11th of November. The two day event will feature the best ladies and men’s teams in the North including our very own Northumbria ladies team and Newcastle men’s team. Historically the weekend has produced some very high quality squash and this year promises to be even better with several world ranked players in action.

All the action kicks off from 10am on the Saturday with matches throughout the day. Sunday’s play will also commence from 10am. Food and drinks deals will be on offer all weekend. It would be fantastic to have as much support as possible for our local students! Highlights include a clash between Newcastle’s Chris Wiggins and Nottingham’s Adam Auckland in a re run of the PSL match last month.

Really looking forward to seeing a large crowd down and thanks in advance for your support.


The Final of the 2018 Consett Squash Club Handicap Competition will be contested between Mal Guthrie (+4) and Dave Buxton (+12) - Both players have endured difficult matches throughout the competition and are fully deserved of their place in the Final.

The date for the match is yet to be decided, but please do come and support both players when this takes place.

Many thanks to Graham Madge for again doing such a great job in organising this years competition.
