After a fierce and highly competitive tournament the Summer Cup came to its conclusion last Thursday. The dark nights closing in signal the end of the summer competition and the move into the NW Counties Leagues - travelling hundreds of miles for cold courts and scrappy food - what joy!
This wasn’t however present at Knutsford Squash's famous Summer Cup. Following the results from the first three games the final score draw was made. This was to be Black Eyed Peas vs Juniors and for 3rd/4th play off Grogolodytes vs Five Get Over Excited.
Tension was high as the games proceeded. Unfortunately the Juniors - despite bringing in again players, who could only be considered comparatively as old age pensioners - didn’t manage to succeed on this occasion. Final victors were Ian Hopkins' Black Eyed Peas. And third-place came Greg's Grogolodytes with Neil's Five Get Over Excited yet again languishing at the bottom of the tank. At least he brought in a team this year - well done Neil. Nevertheless fantastic efforts by all teams, great food and a super competition. Hopefully the captains will return with vigour for another great Summer Cup tournament next year.
