Club Championship 2009
2009 Club Championship Final was played at Hallhill Healthy Living
Centre on Sunday 19th April in front of a surprisingly large and
year's final saw two time champion David Legge take on first time finalist
Evan Green. The match started at a fast tempo with an extremely long
first rally that saw a high speed and high quality exchange, which proved
to be a
taster of things to come. The first game was hard fought with both
players showing both power and finesse. Evan eventually winning it 9-7.
second game witnessed a run of blistering winners from Dave as the
exhausting first game seemed to take it's toll on Evan. Dave cruised
to 9-2, levelling the match at one game all. Normal service was
resumed in the third game as both players seemed to realise this was a
crucial game to win. Evan raced to a 5-1 lead but was relentlessly
hunted down by Dave who eventually took the game 9-7 and a two games to
fourth game epitomises the well used phrase "well, that's squash for
you". Dave raced to an 8-1 lead and the writing seemed on the
wall. The engraver had his eye-piece in place and some of the crowd were
probably even thinking about leaving quickly to avoid the usual chaos in
the car park. Anybody who did, missed an extraordinary come-back! As if
inspiration came shining through the blinds above the court, Evan
steadfastly and courageously hit winner after winner to pull himself up
over the precipice and go from 8-1 down to 10-8 winner in one hand. It was
two games all ... remarkable!
then the decider. The fifth game was, in the end, a tale of what had
gone before. Having seen one championship point come and swiftly go
in the fourth game, the reigning champion turned on the afterburners and with a
devastating show of power and fitness Dave surged over the line to win the
final game 9-1.
for the third successive year David Legge is the Dunbar Squash Club
Champion. Congratulations Dave!

Squash Club held its first tournament of 2009 at Hallhill Healthy Living
Centre on Sunday 11th January. A good turn out of old and new faces meant
some interesting clashes with the handicaps being in favour of the less
all 13 players competed the first round consisting of single games played
with American scoring – again favouring less experienced players.
Notable upsets were Julie Huggan beating Neil Black and also first year
veternary student James Thornton-Smith. .
two semi-finals saw old hand and last year's winner Phil Revell against
tournament newcomer Evan Green. A close fought game finished 15-13 to Phil.
The other semi-final saw Richard Baty against David Weissgerber. Much
sweat & calories were expended but Richard finally triumphed via a
miss hit (as usual) which David threw himself athletically to the floor in
a valiant attempt to retrieve – unfortunately he didn’t!
then went on to toppled Phil from his throne in a hard fought final.
