Last week our very own Lucy Turmel claimed her fourth Tour Victory in the Women’s Boston Open!
From being coached at our club from a young age to winning an international squash championship is just amazing. The club is so proud of you Lucy!
This week, Lucy and Anna Kimberley will be taking part in the EM Noll Classic PSA Challenger in Philadelphia, USA! On behalf of everyone here at Ipswich Sports Club, we wish them the best of luck!
The Club Championships are under way with stacks of matches to play before the finals on Dec 10th. All the draws, results and schedules are here.
A great evening of squash when the Nick Matthew & Daryl Selby Exhibition Tour visited the Club. Quality clinics and a great exhibition match followed by an incisive Q&A session with two great ambassadors for the sport. Watch the match on the ISC Squash facebook page.
The Club welcomed professional squash back on court last weekend with 16 top men and women players courtesy of Off The Wall Squash and Arion Homes.
Georgina Kennedy lived up to her billing as the new hot prospect in England, defeating Scot Georgia Adderley in Saturday’s final. Having recently returned to the UK after completing her studies at Harvard, Kennedy is on a roll with a national final appearance and several tour wins on her way to a certain spot in the world top 30 players.
There was a full house for all the matches from Thursday’s first round to Saturday’s final and all the top matches were streamed live and are still available through the links on the ISCSquash facebook page.
Our squash juniors are taking the lockdown opportunity to work on their fitness, thanks to club Head coach Emily Ison and the team at OTW. A huge thank you to professional players Daryl Selby, Lisa Aitken, Ben Coleman and Declan James for inspiring our young players. We will look forward to seeing you all again next week…
When your club is shut and you can’t play on your favourite court make your own at home! Stay safe…
The first round of our inter primary school competition,The Saxon Cup, held yesterday afternoon resulted in 60 year 3 and 4 students playing squash for the very first time. With over 180 matches completed it was jam packed couple of hours.
The event is kindly sponsored by the Club Squash Futures Fund and The England Squash Foundation.
The finals will now be played on 18th March 2020.
Meet Club Squash Coach – Conor
I have played squash since the age of 8 and has been playing competitively for 10 years. With a passion for playing the game I naturally fell into teaching and I have been involved in club coaching for the past 4 years.
I joined Ipswich Sports Club 12 months ago and I just love the feel of the club and I have enjoyed getting to know the many members coming along to our squash programme.
I enjoy keeping healthy and my coaching has kept my love of squash going – this has now become my chosen career.
The rewarding part of my job is I get to see the improvements players make in whichever goals they are focusing on.
I am a Level 2 certified coach who is always keen to learn new things – I am currently taking my level 3 qualification which I hope to complete later this year.
I am also a keen footballer and enjoy music.
Whilst I am pleased to report I am very busy with all of my work at the club, I am keen to get as many people playing squash as possible. I am always available for a chat or a little advice on Friday’s during club night – since taking this over I am please to report a upturn in numbers and hopefully enjoyment for those attending.
General Manager Andy Yorke on Conor:
‘Conor is a pleasure to work with, he is extremely respectful, mild mannered and profession in everything he does. He embodies everything a club coach should be, a true credit to the team here at the club’.
Good luck to @ipswichsports Club members Emma Logan, Zoe Tanner, Harry Griffith & Bonnie Elvin who are playing in the @BJOsquash from today 🍀👍
