In September, Wimbledon Racquets and Fitness Club held their first ever Women’s Only Annual Squash Tournament.

Run as an afternoon event, entries were beyond expectations with 33 participants taking part, ranging from nationally ranked juniors to Masters players.

The event was split in to 4 divisions; A, B, C and D with a round robin format and a playoff for final position. Matches were played as a best of 3, ensuring each player had 4 matches and the event was completed in a single afternoon.

The surprise winner of the day was 14 year Eve Coxon of Oxon who won the A division beating some high profile players on route to her title.

Wimbledon Racquets and Fitness Club is looking forward to hosting this tournament annually on the first Saturday in September, next year being the 3rd, 2016.

Tina Fuselli, the Tournament Organiser, said; “This is the first time we’ve ever held it and I was going to be happy to get 20-24 entries. I was ecstatic to get a full draw, it was fantastic! The plan is to grow this event every year, with the aim to develop a smaller version of the US Howe Cup – the largest squash event for women in the US. It’ll be a bigger draw next year, and I hope to see you there!”
