A group of squash players from Chesham descended to Wales to partake in an annual racket tournament.

Chesham 1879 Tennis and A Squash Club visited the Welsh capital at the beginning of October to challenge a side from Rhibwina Squash and Racketball Club (RSC).

This was part of the Chesham International Squash Team that embarked on their 15th international tour

Other teams the players have faced off against have been in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Portugal, Poland, Malta and Cyprus, in a series only broken by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The players have also played against teams in Jersey and Isle of Man.

In all, 64 matches were played across the group of players and after four-and-a-half hours of playing, it was declared that the match would finish as a draw.

One of the players said: “It was a great day.

“A team of 16 with a not to be mentioned average age played a RSC mixed team with an age range of 12 to 76.”

They will face Gibraltar next month.
