Two Yorkshire winners in Nottingham

Yorkshire had two winners at the National Masters Championships at the Park Club in Nottingham on 13-17 February.

Andrea Santamaria took the Women’s Over-50s title and Adrian Wright overcame fellow Yorkshireman Mike Clemson in the final of the Over-75s event.

Overall, there was a good entry of 16 men and four women from the White Rose county across all categories.

Ed Winter nearly caused an upset in an earlier round of the Over-65s, having match balls before being edged out by the second seed, and Lexi Panteli, a Yorkshirewoman based in Manchester, reached the final of the Over-35s Plate event.

Attention now turns to the British Open Masters Championships being played at Hull University, on the same site as the main Allam sponsored Open event, on 22 – 26 May.

It is hoped that more Yorkshire players will take the opportunity to pit themselves against the best from the United Kingdom and beyond. Registration for the event will open shortly on the England Squash Masters website.
