Devon County Championships 2014 at Newton Abbot

 

As you may be aware Newton Abbot will be the host of this years Devon County Championship event on the 4th & 5th October. This competition will see all standards of players from around the country compete as various grades of ability.

It may be news to you, but the competition is open to EVERYONE, of all standards and ages. The format is a 4 tired competition where the losers of games move into the grade below. For example if you lose your first round game of the 1st tier, you will be put into the 2nd tier. A bit like our plate competitions, although this has sub plates (saucers perhaps).

As the host club we want to get as many of our members involved in the event as possible, so we are calling all members particularly those involved in the Devon leagues to sign up. It is a great opportunity to play new players that perhaps you wouldn't foresee playing against. It is also an opporuntiy for players wanting to break into the teams to show what they can do against likely league opponents. Moreover it is a chance to be part of a Devon competition, see great squash and enjoy the atmosphere, the games are scheduled so you won't need to spend 48 hours at the club either, just be there for your games.

The cost to play in the competition is £10, I would like to think we can raise at least 20 entries. You can sign up using the form below , payment can be taken using our paypal account (same as for the court fees).

We want to stress how open this tournament is to anyone, any skill level, age and gender. Join in and enjoy the event
