Tesco Bags of Help Scheme


We were pleased that the Squash Club had been accepted as part of the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme; this grant scheme allows local projects (we were one of three successful projects on this occasion) the opportunity to go forward to a vote in Tesco stores, where their customers decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop.

This was a great and unique opportunity; it followed an application made on the basis of the Club's commitment to growing the sport of squash, encouraging greater participation for all and, in particular, with local young people.

Practical support from the Scheme will assist plans for junior development and help ensure this remains sustainable, through the recruitment and development of new coaches, as well as the on-going development and accreditation of our existing coaches.
Funding may also allow us to offer some support to parents accopamying juniors to tournaments organised by Wales Squash, our National Governing Body, in South Wales or abroad.

Importantly, we hope this will go a long way to help secure and support a strong local sporting future at the Squash Club.

The Tesco Bags for Help Grant Scheme continued at the Wrexham store through November and until the end of December.

Members are thanked for their support in voting for the Club.


A Fast & Furious Christmas


The 2018 Fast & Furious Christmas Tournament was held on 7th and 8th December, with around 30 players taking part.

Champion cleaners ....


The essence of many Clubs, including Wrexham Brymbo Squash Club, is the voluntary nature of how business is managed, from the monthly leagues, the website and some of the day to day maintenance.

Highlighting this voluntary action, on 28 September, Jonathan Davies [2018 Club Champion] and his guest, Tesni Evans [2018 British National Champion, 2018 Commonwealth Games Bronze Medalist and current World No 12] decided to clean their court before play.
We thank them for their self help initiative.


Just Champion cleaning !

Challenging Conditions !


Our inaugural season finale, The Condition Game Challenge took place on 21 April.

Despite a disappointing number of entrants, those who did take part enjoyed some excellent squash, culminating in a classic Youth v. Experience final match between young Josh Davies and (the slightly older) Mark Davies.

A packed gallery witnessed a tight match reaching 14-14 and, in the dramatic sudden death final rally, Mark came through to win.

It is intended that the Condition Game Challenge should become a permanent end-of-season event; a bit of fun that will seek to raise funds for Junior Squash at the Club.
