Chesham 1879 Squash Touring Side - 2nd Oct 2021

Main Image

A great day was had at RSC when we hosted Cheshams “International” Touring side. For their 16th tour and having previously visited Cyprus, Malta, Ireland, Portugal and Jersey they came to Wales for the first time. A team of 16 with a not to be mentioned average age played a RSC mixed team with an age range of 12 to 76. After 4.5 hrs and 64 matches the result was an honourable draw at which point we retired to the bar for a buffet and a few beers. As I said a most enjoyable day and our thanks to Robert Upton for the initial organisation and to Greg Tippings for the smooth scheduling of all the matches on the day.
