Welcome to the York & District Squash League...

We exist to encourage the game of squash at all levels in the York area, and to organise local leagues and tournaments. Our sister organisation runs the women's leagues, with most of the same clubs entering both men's and women's teams.

We also support junior squash, which is actively developed by several of our affiliated clubs.

York Open Champion 2019 – Matt Stephenson

York Open Champion 2019 : Matt Stephenson (Dunn)
Finalist : Nathan Hill (Dunn)

Plate Winner : George Pethulis (Dunn)
Plate Finalist : Dan Adams (DL)

Held at Dunnington Squash the 2019 York Open proved a combative affair with much grumbling but the number one seed Matt Stephenson, saw off the challenge of four-time champion Nathan Hill in 4 games making him a multi-title winner having won the event in 2017.

The earlier match between David Lloyds Dan Adams and Dunningtons George Pethhulis was a long winded battle with high paced retrieval being the focus and despite going behind in the 5th, George finished the stronger claiming the Plate winners medal.

Many thanks to host club Dunnington for their support of the event, and to organiser Ed Shannon without whom the event would have been forgotten.

Riley Cup 2017 Champions Kirkbymoorside 2

Kirkbymoorside 2 led by John Sugarman travelled the short distance south to Stillington Sports & Social Club to take on a Wigginton 5/6 team captained by Andy Frost.

Andy had been a been a marvellous supporter of the competition agreeing to 3 games in 4 days after early rounds were left too late and their QF opponents were still unknown a week before the final!  The big battle came in the semi final though.  Wigginton 6, currently bottom of the bottom division were away to David Lloyd who are sat at the top of the top division!  An eye watering handicap of 188 saw Wigginton 6 win through with the slim winning margin of 3 points.

KMS2 had an easier route to the final getting past Selby 4 easily in the semi-final.  Not surprisingly the away trip to the far north from the far south didn’t appeal and KMS 2 received the walkover.

Teams on the night:

Kirkbymoorside 2

Allan Bailey (drew)
Darren Kellett (lost by 14)
John Sugarman (c) (lost by 13)
Rick Eve (won by 12)
Steve Leech (won by 23)

Wigginton 5/6

Deborah Harvey (drew 39-39)
Bob Hollingsworth (won by 14)
Rachael Webster (won by 13)
Alan Hancock (lost by 12)
Andy Frost (c) (lost by 23)


 Game 1  Game 2  Game 3  TOTAL  handicap  FINAL SCORE
Kirkbymoorside 2 59 69 61 189 189
Wigginton 5/6 59 56 56 171 15 186
