The club will be hosting The Danny Gamble Squash Open 2022 open tournament from the 28th of April to the 1st of May 2022. The event is the longest-running tournament at the club and has been running since May 2005 to commemorate club member, Danny Gamble, who sadly died of Cancer in 2004. This year’s event will be a combined Singles, Doubles, and Mixed doubles event with the Singles event also registered as a PSA Satellite event which will feature a number of up and coming pro players as well as a mixture of club players. It is one of the few tournaments left that gives club players a unique opportunity to get on court with a pro player, in the singles event. A singles plate event will also be running for all qualifying round and first-round losers to give everyone the opportunity of more squash throughout the weekend 🙂
The doubles event will be run all day on Saturday and the semi-finals and finals will be held on Sunday. The mixed doubles event will be a one-day event held on Sunday only along with the semis and finals of the singles, plate singles, and doubles events.
