Success for Rochdale Squash Club at the North West Counties Squash League finals 

Date published: 03 June 2024

Rochdale Squash Club celebrated its success at the North West Counties Squash League finals at the National Squash Centre on Sunday 19 May.

The men's first team won the third division play-off final. The team sealed a magnificent victory 15/2 to seal a return to the second tier of squash in the north west.

The junior team of George, Ricardo and Adam celebrated their own success after coming out with the under 19s trophy, beating all before them.

Meanwhile, the second junior team of Amaan, Jakub and Isaac performed admirably with Amaan beating players of a much higher ranking, and Isaac and Jakub, who had never played at the finals before gaining invaluable experience.

Coach Andy Parton told Rochdale Online: “I’m so proud of them all. I’ve been coaching some of these players for over 10 years and it’s great to see their hard work paying off.

“I mean we expected to win, at this point we do have a lot of good players in the county network, and I really hope we will win again next year.”

He added: “It takes a lot of hard work and effort, not just from myself and the players but from the parents of the juniors, bringing them consistently to all the games.

“Covid got in the way of kids playing for years but with hard work and determination we’ve still got a really good set of players.”

The squash club, based at Rochdale Sports Club on Bridgefold Road, is open to new players with various beginners and other classes taking place through the week.
