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.

Riley Cup

Stillington 3 are this year’s Riley Cup champions, overcoming a strong Selby 1/2 team in the final at Clifton Park.

Stillington are a perfect blend of youth and experience, and it was the older element which got them off to the best possible start with Mark Brogan winning a tight tussle with Alastair Rainier. The higher-ranked Selby team evened things up with a victory from Luke Murphy, but their fortunes didn’t improve from then on. Phil Theobold, Tom Howell and Callum Andrew were all able to take a game off their more illustrious opponents.

Selby finished 30 ahead, but that was well below the handicap of 65. Triumphant captain Duncan Cook is shown with his team below.

The individual scores were:

1. Simon O’Neill v Phil Theobold 15/11 15/10 11/15
2. Mal Holmes v Tom Howell 15/11 9/15 15/7
3. Mark Love v Callum Andrew 15/6 11/15 15/13
4. Luke Murphy v Duncan Cook 15/5 15/12 15/8
5. Alastair Rainier v Mark Brogan 11/15 12/15 14/5

York Open and Veterans – Rusling retains title

Paul Adams (Vets), James Rollinson (Plate) and Chris Rusling (Open)

York RI’s Chris Rusling emerged victorious from a week of action at Dunnington Sports Club which concluded on Saturday.

Chris was head and shoulders above the opposition all week and he demonstrated this with a convincing victory over David Lloyd’s Paul Adams. Chris started the final quickly, taking the first without dropping a point. Paul was able to get in to the rallies a little more from then on, but didn’t score until late on in the third when he was forced to retire. Chris retained his title with a convincing 9/0 9/0 8/1 (retd) scoreline.

For the first time the Veterans tournament was held alongside the Open. The final was between Paul Adams and Dunninton’s Ray Burke. The game was close throughout, which no doubt contributed to Paul’s difficulties later on in the evening in the Open final. Ray managed to edge the first game 10/8 but Paul proved stronger from then on. There was little in it though, with no game being won by more than three points. The final score was 8/10 9/7 9/6 9/7. We won’t be holding the Vets and Open at the same time next year!

An entertaining Plate final was won by RI’s James Rollinson who beat Gus Clapham from Wiggington 3-2. James bravely called set one in the final game but Gus wasn’t able to convert his match ball. The final score was 8/10 9/0 5/9 9/7 9/8.
