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.

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.
