Largs Bay Squash Teams will have priority on evenings when matches are scheduled in the SA Squash Association Pennant Competition. Please check the roster posted on the Squash Noticeboards.
The club uses a timed coin switching system to charge for court lighting. Lights must be on at all times during play.
The squash courts may not be available for play on some days during major sailing regattas.
Follow the progress of the "LBSC Team" which competes in the Squash SA pennant competition.
Keep up with the team's recent results on the Squash SA website
|SOCIAL SQUASH PLAYERS
LBSC members wishing to play squash on a casual basis may use the courts at any time when they are not being used by our team playing in a programmed round of the Squash SA pennant competition.
Social players should plan their squash sessions to avoid Pennant Team Competition nights and Wednesdays from 4:30pm as that is when the team players choose to do their training and they continue into the night.
Persons playing squash shall pay for the lights at all time by using the automated fee collection boxes located on the wall above the squash courts. We recommend that you bring suitable coins to feed these time metered machines as change is not usually available at the club bar or galley.
|SQUASH TEAM NEWS : Season 2014
Pennant squash at Largs Bay is alive and well and very healthy.
State 2 Team finished in third position on the ladder and had to play a sudden death match, for which they were undermanned due to injuries. Unfortunately, they did not progress to the next round. Next season. It should be said that they had a good season.
State 4 Team, on the other hand, finished second on their ladder, but still had to play a sudden death final. They won a hard fought 3 rubbers to 1 to gain a grand final berth. They Played a Next Generation team who turned up with a substantial gallery of supporters. Largs had only two sets of parents, some partners and the author. In true Port Adelaide fashion, the underdogs got up. Largs won the toss and opted to play number ones first to settle the nerves. It was a tough, no quarter asked or given, matchup.
Largs’ Chris Green lost the first two games, but settled nicely to get game point in the third. Luck plays a part in any sport, and Chris was on the receiving end of his share of ordinary luck at critical points. As a result, he was unable to convert the third game to a win, and who knows what after that.
Next Gen called number fours next. This was Phillip Remphrey. Phil went on with a ton of confidence, and won in a canter. Unfortunately, he dropped a game (3-1 win) due to the “ordinary luck” that had plagued Chris.
Twos were next, Phil’s brother Andrew. He was the class act of the night for mine. He systematically took his man apart to win in straight sets. This meant that Largs only needed two games to win, and one game would mean a count back on points.
Enter the number three player, a young Sam Haydon. Sam is a junior player (16 years old) and so he was given the task of bringing home the result. I was truly impressed with his maturity under pressure. The first game was a defining moment. Sam had control for the early part, getting a handy lead, but his opponent rallied toward the latter stages, turning it into an arm wrestle to the end. Sam won it, meaning Largs was only one game, or lots more points away from a victory. His opponent capitulated in the second, and Sam careered away for a comfortable win in the end.
If anyone is wondering about the quality of this win, keep these things in mind:
