EXETER GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB TO HOST ITS 5TH MEN’S PROFESSIONAL SQUASH RANKING EVENT IN JANUARY
On the 10th – 12th January Exeter Golf and Country Club will be hosting some of the best Squash players from all over the world as it holds its 5th annual Men’s Professional Squash ranking event. The finalists of the 2019 competition are pictured above.
The draw this year features some of England’s top players alongside opponents from Denmark, South Africa and Wales. While the top seeds Mark Fuller from Nottingham (world ranked 163) and Miles Jenkins from Birmingham (world ranked 169) are the two favourites for the title, there is stern opposition across all stages of the draw from the ¾ and 5/8 seeds, meaning that there will be no easy matches at all over the weekend.
Local challenges will be provided by Exeter Golf and Country Club Squash Professional Mike Harris (world ranked 220), Exeter Golf and Country Club Squash 1st team and Devon player Mike Gregory, and two other Exeter and Devon Squash stalwarts Luke Bishop and James Snell. All of whom will be looking to provide some upset wins as lower or unseeded players in the draw.
Spectator entry is free across the whole of the weekend so it would be great to get as many people in to support the local players and watch the matches as possible!
The match schedule is as follows:
Rd 1: Friday 10th 6pm & 6.45pm
Quarter Finals: Saturday 11th 2pm & 2.45pm
Semi Finals: Saturday 11th 6pm
Final: Sunday 12th 1pm
Exeter Golf and Country Club is also running an Adult Open Graded event all day on the Saturday and a Junior England ranking event on the Sunday so there will be some great Squash to watch no matter what time you come down to the club.
