Leagues - and change to American scoring

As the NW counties leagues are changing the way Thursday night inter-club leagues matches are scored to American scoring, the internal league scoring system is being similarly changed. This is to help players get used to a somewhat different way of playing (as those of you who have taken part in the summer cup will know, American scoring does require a slightly different approach), so that when/if they play for the teams, it won't be a shock. Officially, the internal leagues will change next month (October), but there is no reason why this month's outstanding league games shouldn't be played to the new rules. So from now, internal league games should be scored as follows:

  • Best of 5 games (as now)
  • First server decided by racket spin (as now)
  • The winner of every rally gains a point (that's different - currently only server can win a point)
  • The winner of every rally serves to start the next rally, including for the next game where appropriate (as now)
  • Winner of a game is first player to 15 points (currently 9), EXCEPT: if score reaches 14-14, then the game continues until one player has 2 more points than the other- no prizes for the highest score each month, but do feel free to post high scores on the forum!
  • Everything else as now, including entering scores on the website

Ladies' League Appeal



Jane Wood runs the Cheshire Ladies League, which is now pretty much the last surviving viable ladies league in the country - certainly in the north west. In fact 'Cheshire' is now a bit of a misnomer because we do take in teams from the surrounding counties, since there is no competitive ladies squash elsewhere.

But we too have lost teams over the last few seasons and so this email is to ask - do you have lady players in your club? And do they fancy a night out on Mondays during the season??

Apart from being on Mondays, we operate on exactly the same system as NWCSL and our fixtures/ results are accessible on resultszone along with yours. Teams of five, home and away, home team supplies supper etc etc. Only difference is, we use PAR scoring in all divisions.

We have three Divisions - 1st is strong (very strong at the top end), 2nd is competent, and 3rds tend to be a mix of good young players on the way up (including juniors) and good older players on the way down!

And new teams get their first league season for free! How could they resist?? (After that it's £40 per team per season or £32 if they pay at or before the AGM.)

So please do pass this on to any lady players in your Club who might be interested. It's a sociable League, we have a good time and we'd love to welcome them. The season will start first week in October, fixtures are now on the website but we do have gaps in both 3rd Divisions ...

Please contact Jane via Knutsford  Squash Club

Alsager 1 v Knutsford 2

KSC 2 no match for high flying "Promotion Champs" Alsager 20-0

It was one's Steve C to start this week on the warm Alsager court. A poor start at that and quickly two behind (9-3, 9-1) despite the long rallies and attacking kills. At the end of game three Steve was able to hold his head up high having got to six! Still a long way off Alsager’s level and L3-0.

Graham Wood didn’t have much luck on the other court either, his opponent Steve Hammond won it in 3-0 (9-0,9-1,9-2).

Gary took on Mike Cole and dealt out some great shots- accurate, long, tight. Cole’s reply was dropping early and then attacking on his serve leaving little time for Gary to recover.   The result another L3-0 (9-1,9-3,9-2).

Even now we had high hopes for Greg against the Alsager youngster Chris Riley. His improved game had tremendous speed getting forward and left Greg studying the player manual. He managed to settle into the match and played Alsager front to back and wrong footed with a drive to show signs of a Knutsford victory.  Chris blew up a bit and the forced errors helped Greg’s cause but not the result, Chris too fast getting forward but good effort Greg! L3-0 (9-5,9-2,9-1).

Last man John against Tom Raftery.  Again Alsager had the most advantage on court, John probably the best touch in moving his opponent around but Alsager's composure was impressive and stepped in to take the Lions share of the points. In the end John's efforts made little impression on Toms grip on the game. John resigned to join the losers bench. 3-0 (9-0,9-0,9-4).
