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 RI 1 retain Riley Cup

York RI 1 overcame a large handicap to retain the Riley Cup at York Squash Club last week. The holders defeated a valiant Selby 4/5. Dan Adams and Chris Rusling did much to help RI hold on to the Cup by only giving up 5 points, while Steve Thirwell was the star for Selby in taking 14 points off the classy Jamie Robinson (see the full scorecard and final draw).

Tom Bamford is York Open champion

Stillington player Tom Bamford is the new York Open champion, winning a long encounter with Ed Shannon (York University and Wigginton) 3-2 (6/9 4/9 9/0 9/7 9/3). The game was of the highest quality and Ed looked in control at 2 games up. However, Tom’s better fitness started to show and he won the third easily. The match looked to be Ed’s at 7-2 up in the fourth but, despite having 7 serves at that score, Ed couldn’t turn the winning rallies into points. Tom looked the much stronger of the pair in the last and was a deserving winner in the end.

In the Vets, Matthew Stephenson (Dunnington) beat James Rollinson (Railway Institute) 3-0.

Tom Howell of Stillington won the plate from club-compatriot Anthony Baines.

For the first time in many years, the ladies final was held on the same evening. Nicky Horn (York) convincingly beat Nat Cain (David Lloyd) 3-0.

Riley Cup 2013/14 – updated 15th Jan

An updated (15th Jan) draw for the 2013/14 Riley Cup is now available here.

Brian Godson (07979 877194 and brigodson@gmail.com) is running it this year.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the rules, there is the usual 5-man team, but each string plays three games of first to 15 PAR (point a rally) scoring. A handicap mark is provided in advance based on the difference between the total points scored by each team.
