Our county squash teams are scheduled to play in two friendly matches against rival clubs ahead of the new winter season, which begins next month.
Lilleshall SRC ‘A’ and ‘B’, who are captained by Keith Hansell and Martin Powell respectively, will travel to Bishops Castle on Tuesday 11th Sept (6:20pm) and Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club on Thursday 20th Sept.
Lilleshall SRC ‘B’, who will be competing in Division 3 this season, will begin their campaign at home on Thursday 4th October against Castle Country SC (7:15pm) and Lilleshall SRC ‘A’, who will be playing above them in Division 2, will stage their first game the following week on Tuesday 9th October at home against Wolverhampton LTSC ‘B’.
It would be greatly appreciated if our club members could come down and support our players during these two matches and throughout the rest of the season, which runs through until April 2019. All home fixtures will be staged on our main show courts (4 and 5).
Please note that our weekly ‘Pitch and Play’ session will be hosted on Courts 1-3 (hardback courts) when Lilleshall SRC ‘B’ are scheduled to play at home. You can check our club board for further details.
