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 Vets 2012 – Paul Adams champion

Paul Adams (David Lloyd/York) beat Ray Burke (Wigginton) 3-1 (4-9, 9-3, 9-7, 10-8) in the final of the York Veterans Championship.

In what proved to be an excellent match, with both players showing great commitment and skill, it was Ray, pushing forward and taking the ball early, who took the opening game after Paul had raced into a 3-0 lead. The second game saw a change in fortunes as it was now Paul who was keeping Ray on the back foot.

He continued this form to go 5-0 ahead in the third before Ray again began to claw back the points, but the early deficit proved to be just too much as Paul closed out the game, 9-7.

The fourth proved to be the longest game of the match, 17 mins, again Paul took the early lead, 4-0, only for Ray to level at 5-5. There then followed several exchanges of points as both players made errors. However, Paul kept his concentration to squeeze home 10-8 in a match lasting a testing 53 minutes.

Many thanks to Rod Erridge for organising.

York Open 2012

The 2012 York Open champion is Neil Cordell, who beat last year’s winner Chris Rusling in an excellent final at a snowy Clifton Park on Saturday evening. Watched by a good crowd, Neil showed his customary strength and skill, but Chris made him fight to regain the tile he last won in 2009. It finished 3-0 (9/5, 9/1, 9/5), but was closer than the scoreline suggests.

In the Plate final, Marc Thomas beat Dan Adams 3-1 (9/0, 9/6, 7/9, 9/5).
