Squash champions set to battle for the double title win

Mar 21, 2018 | Jenni Ashford

The final big team game of the squash season is almost here. Thursday 29th March is the biggest date in the squash calendar and this year the pressure is on more than ever for Exeter Golf and Country Club’s 1st Men’s team.

The Devon Cup Final follows the Devon League Cup which Exeter Golf and Country Club won last week. The Club’s 1st Men’s team are bidding once more for the Devon Cup and Devon League double win.

Last year’s squash season ended with a historic double win for 1st Men’s team at Exeter Golf and Country Club, when for the first time ever, one club team won both.

The Devon Cup Final match kicks off at 7pm on Thursday.

Exeter Golf and Country Club’s five strongest squash players are making final preparations ready for their push for victory.

Exeter Golf and Country Club’s strongest possible team line up have enjoyed a solid season so far this year and they are feeling optimistic about the final. They will discover which team they will face after the semi-final play-off next Tuesday when Fort Stamford from Plymouth take on Devon and Exeter Squash Club.
