The Doubles Competition

This is one of the clubs oldest competitions and has had many formats over the years. Currently it is run at about the same time as the national 'Children in Need' appeal, as a charity competition the proceeds being donated to local children's charities. Dependant on the number of entry's most if not all 4 courts are booked and teams are split off into divisions

Divisional winners and runners up then play off in quarter and semi finals to give us a final. 'America' scoring games are played for a set length of time dependant on the number of entry's this could be anything from 4 to 10 minutes. Play starts when the marker calls 'play' and ends when he calls 'time'

Something that has never changed over the years is the social/sporting nature of the competition. We have always provided some liquid refreshments throughout the evening and meat & potato pies to keep up the player's strength. We have in fact over the course of this competition 'seen off' two local confectioners. Murphy's of Egremont provided the pies for a number of years (round ones in a silver foil containers) followed by Eldon's (tray pie cut into slabs) of Cleator. Both have now ceased trading but the doubles goes on. The liquid refreshments are still transported to the squash club by players, by hand, in Jug's. We stopped using buckets for this purpose a number of years ago.
