Malvern Active Squash Team On Tour
Malvern Active Squash Team started the new year by entering the Exeter Golf & Country Club graded squash tournament on 11th January 2020.
This tournament attracted amateur players from all over the country competing at varying standards graded A-E and ran alongside a Professional Squash Association ranking event which was eventually won by Professional Miles Jenkins ranked 169th in the world.
Gareth Oliver, Anthony Arnold, Jez Clarke & Oliver Parker represented Malvern Active entering grades B-E respectively.
Although all players competed well in some entertaining fixtures the Malvern side returned mixed results. The highlight being Oliver Parker who reached the final of the E category although lost out 3-2 in the best of 5 fixture after a gallant fightback from being 2-0 down.
Malvern Active will look for an improved return next year.
