Witham Squash Team News

The squash team, captained by Catherine Swanston, have been busy this term. I hope you enjoy their match reports. Thanks to Mr Boswall for his time in the evenings with the children at squash club and then also at matches!

Squash v Uppingham U14 – Sunday 12th October 

Congratulations to the squash team on a successful result against Uppingham Under 14s on Sunday. Our team comprised of Catherine Swanston as captain, George Davies, Harry Thompson, James Tattersall, Toby Hanson and Geordie Irvine. Each team member played at least two matches and all of our players won at least one match. Several of the matches were very close and the overall score between the teams does not fully represent the closeness of the fixture. The final result was an 11 – 3 win to Witham Hall.

Squash Triangular – Witham Hall, King’s College, Cambridge and Hunts. County

 The Witham Hall team comprised of Catherine Swanston, George Davies, Harry Thompson, James Tattersall and Toby Hanson. The standard of squash played throughout the afternoon was very high, and the stiff competition seemed to bring the best out of the Witham players. We competed very well and many of the matches were tantalisingly close. The final results were a 9-11 defeat against King’s College School, Cambridge, and an 8-9 defeat against Hunts County. It really couldn’t have been much closer. Well done to all of the players.

Squash IX V Oakham School

 We fielded another strong squash team this week, with the overall  match finishing as an 8-1 victory to Witham Hall. Catherine Swanston captained, and the rest of the team consisted of James Tattersall, George Davies, Harry Thompson, Will Chandler, Toby Hanson, Alfie Buik, Archie Smith-Maxwell and Sacha Howells. Everyone played well and the afternoon was so well-organised by Oakham that all players were able to play a second match. We enjoyed two hours of non-stop squash and returned to school happy and tired. Well done to all involved.
