Knutsford currently fields seven mens' teams and one ladies team in the North West Counties Squash League (NWCSL).

 

The match season runs from September through to April with mens' teams playing each week on Thursday evenings and ladies on Monday evenings.

There are 13 weeks of matches before Christmas, and 13 weeks after, with matches played on a home and away basis. Matches start around 7pm and conclude around 10pm followed by food and refreshment.

Team and individual records for current and past seasons are also accessible below.

If you would like to play for the club please contact Mike Sharman - click here

 

League Structure

Knutsford Squash Club runs 7 mens' teams in the NW leagues and 1 ladies team in the equivalent league. We will be playing in a range of divisions from Div 2 to Div 5.

Knutsford 1 is in Div 2, Knutsford 2 & 3 in Div 3 and Knutsford 4, 5, 6 & 7 in Div 4. 

Fixtures are available on the North West Counties website at www.nwcsl.org

 
Logistics

We will play out of three locations (Knutsford, Radbroke Hall and on occasion Wilmslow leisure centre).  Teams will be fairly rotated amongst the locations throughout the season.  Wilmslow will be adopted as an overflow court on the odd occasion that we have 4 teams at home.
For those teams playing at Knutsford and Radbroke Hall, food will be served from the Knutsford club after the match.  The team playing at Wilmslow will use the 'King William' pub in Wilmslow.  For all locations, it is imperative that a 19:00 start is achieved in order to complete all games in a timely manner.
We will also be fielding a ladies team in the Cheshire league and they will play out of Knutsford in Division 2.  As they play on a Monday evening their matches will not clash with the mens' on a Thursday.

 
Cost

The weekly match fee is £10 per person per week for senior members and £3 for juniors. This covers, food on the evening, court costs, balls and England squash registration. The cost will be monitored and any excess at the end of the season will be re-invested in the club.

 
Management of teams

Mike Sharman will be selecting the teams - making selections based on availability and North West rankings as documented on the Squash Levels site.

If on an individual case basis, people have to play at a specific location for personal reasons, then we will try and accommodate that as a one-off selection.

 

Communication

We will use the ‘Squash Tosh’ Whatsapp Group to announce the teams and try and get that done by Tuesday of match week.  If you are not part of that group, please let either Tim Slater or Mike Sharman know.

 

Team Captains 

On a weekly basis, a team captain will be nominated, based on who is playing for that team, their responsibilities are as follows:

- Collect payment for each player
- Completion and submission of the result
- Producing a match report that will be published on the website
- Pay for the food if playing at Wilmslow
- Pay to myself the total subs for the week(£50)
- Provide the match ball for home games (from Mike Sharman).
 

Ladies Team

The ladies team will be managed by Amanda Richardson.

 
Results and match report

Each week the results will be submitted to the NW Counties League and also appear on the Club website.  To follow the results and match report pull down on the ‘Members’ tab after logging in.
