Stewart Hefferman stormed to a 4th consecutive title in the Gerrards Cross Squash Club Championship on Sunday 2nd April bring his tally of titles to 5 which equals the club record set by M Schuyl in the late 80's. His opponent, Stephen Bailey struggled to gain a foothold in the match as Stewart took the first two games to love.
At the recent Winter Handicap Tournament, it was reported that Rory had started the final like a man keen to get back to catch something on the telly. To continue the analogy, Stewart seemed to be aiming to get back to catch last week's episode. He was 6-0 up in the 3rd before he dropped a point as Stephen found the nick he'd been searching for. Stewart took such offence at losing a point that he promptly lost several more before regaining the serve to take the game 9-7 and the title with it.
The other matches on the evening went largely to form. In the League 7 Plus tournament, John Pope took a closely fought first game before losing 3-1 to Peter Scott. John is the reigning Winter Points Champion from the leagues and seems to be heading for a creditable 2nd place in that competition this time around.
Robert Rickman took the Mens' Plate trophy, beating Andy Youngs 3-0 despite some spirited resistance from Andy.
The remaining match of the evening was in the Veterans' competition between Robin Hopkinson and Chris Hockin. It isn't a Finals Night without Chris but this time round, it was a semi-final which Robin took 3-1 with a series of heavily disguised shots. Robin will now meet Nick Hallchurch in the final which is to be played at 17:30 on Wednesday 5th April.
The Ladies Tournament will take the form of a round-robin competition from 16:00 on Saturday 8th April.
Junior tournaments have also been held and will be reported separately.
