Tournaments

Club Tournaments

The club run a number of internal tournaments throughout the year for the members to take part in. To date we run 10 different categories from various levels and ages and all club tournaments are free of charge to enter. The rounds of each tournament are played throughout the year and the finals are normally played over finals night weekend with the winners crowned that day. The tournaments run at the club can be found below:

Club Championship – This tournament is open to all club members and the winner is declared the Club champion.

 

Club Handicap – This tournament is open to all club members and the concept of this tournament is to assign everyone a handicap score based on their level of play to give the weaker players more of a chance against better players with weaker players having lower handicaps whilst better players would have higher handicaps, the higher the handicap, the more points a player will have to score to win the game and match. For example someone in league 11 with the handicap of -4 could be up against a player from league 2 with a handicap of -40. In this case the weaker player starts on 0 and the better player starts on -36 (the difference between the two handicaps) and the game is to 9 so the weaker player needs to score 9 points to win and the stronger player has to score 45 points to win that game! This is a fun tournament especially for those who tend to mishit lots of lucky shots off the racket frame.

 

Intermediate Cup – This tournament is open to all club members in league 7 or below or of similar standard. 

 

Rabbits Cup – This tournament is open to all club members in league 12 or below or of similar standard.

 

Venerable Cup – This tournament is open to all club members over the age of 35.

 

Veteran’s Cup – This tournament is open to all club members over the age of 45. 

 

Ron Gawler Cup – This tournament is open to all club members over the age of 55.

 

Tony Whiting Cup – This tournament is open to all club members over the age of 65.

 

Doubles Championship – This tournament is open to all club members. 

 

Racketball Championship – This tournament is open to all club members. 

 

All tournaments use English Scoring to 9 with the exception of the Club Handicap which is American Scoring to 9 and the Club Championship, Venerable Cup, Doubles Championship and Racketball Championship, which are American Scoring to 11.

Open Tournaments

The club also run a number of open tournaments, which attract players from all over the country! Each tournament is unique in its own way and are run in various formats. Below are the open tournaments we run which are amongst the most popular in the country!

The Fines Cup

The Fines Cup is a one day graded tournament that is run in February every year. It is normally held on the third Saturday of February. It is one of two events that we run that are the most popular in the country with entries having sold out in under a quarter on any hour for the past 4 editions! The event was first started in 2015, which saw the rise of one day graded events! It follows a novel idea of in-game fines in a format devised by founder, Joe Magor and is hugely popular with our younger generation of up and coming players who revel in the opportunity to combine theirs skills on and off the court 🙂

The Danny Gamble Squash Open

The Danny Gamble Open is a weekend tournament run in May every year during the end of May bank holiday weekend. It was initially started to commemorate the life of former member, Danny Gamble, who sadly died of cancer in 2005. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength and is currently run as an open singles PSA event, alongside a plate singles event (for first round losers) as well as an open doubles tournament. It is one of our more social events and again, draws in players from all over the country, keen to take part! This is the club’s longest running tournament.

The JayTee Cup

The JayTee Cup is a one day graded tournament that is run in the summer in July every year. It is normally held on the second Saturday of July. It is one of three one day graded events that we run and is a great way to combine squash with a summer barbeque as part of the event! The event was first started in 2015, as a tribute to former club chairman, John Tiley, who was instrumental is getting the first major open tournament (The CSRC Open) off the ground and has been the clubs longest running sponsor so it was only fitting to have an event in his honour, which has now become and annual occurrence! 

The Joe Lockyer Doubles Open

The Joe Lockyer Doubles open is the 2nd tournament we run as a memorial event, in this case for former club chairman and 1st team player, Joe Lockyer. The tournament is run every year in September and is normally run on the first Saturday of September. The tournament boasts an open entry format with teams playing off in groups on a round robin basis, before advancing to the main and plate semi finals and ultimately onto the finals. The tournament first started in 2007 and has become a mainstay on the CSRC calendar with pairs entering from all over Kent as well as parts further away in the UK!
