Walking squash tournament at Hertfordshire Sports Village proves a hit for all
PUBLISHED: 15:00 08 June 2018
The county’s first walking squash tournament held at the Hertfordshire Sports Village proved to be a huge success.
Among the 16 participants were two septuagenarians, four ladies making their squash debut and a 21-year-old student who was roped in to make up a balanced draw.
The winner was 68-year-old Peter Simmons of Stevenage, with the University of Hertfordshire’s Maylani Appasamy getting the most improved player.
Jon Wood picked up the oldest competitor award.
Herts Sports and Physical Activity Partnership director John O’Callaghan said: “It was a great occasion with some exceptional squash played under modified rules.
“For those of us getting on in years, or with restricted movement due to injury, walking squash is a great way to keep fit and provides a much-needed release valve for that competitive edge which, in my experience, never leaves you.”
