SQUASH players from Craighelen showed off their skills at the club’s annual open day in Helensburgh on Saturday.

The day’s events included a junior squash competition and the culmination of the club’s ladies’ and gents’ singles tournaments.

Charlie Fowler beat Helen Niblock in the final of the junior round-robin event, which produced some great play that augurs well for the future of the club’s squash section.

The club’s organisers thanked Kieran Martin for running all the tournaments, giving up his Saturday mornings for junior coaching and giving out the junior trophy.

The ladies’ singles final saw Lisa Fowler defeat Amanda Byles to give the Fowler family a double celebration, while the last of the club championship matches saw Scott Weir defeat Alan Barbour in the men’s singles final.

Andrew Roknic then went on to win the squash plate competition.

The day’s finals brought the winter squash season at Craighelen to a close; the club’s first team just missed out on the top three in the third division of the West of Scotland League, while the second team consolidated their position in the fifth division.

If you fancy having a go at squash, racquetball or tennis, Craighelen are keen to attract new players. All standards and ages welcome – if squash is your game, the club even has spare racquets, so you don’t need to own one yourself.
