Squash National Champions

A mighty congratulations to our squash team, who were crowned national champions after winning their KS5 (U19) competition at Nottingham Rackets Club.

Tim Smith, Truro School’s Head of Squash, said, “In 30 years of teaching squash, I can’t recall a day more dramatic or exciting as this. To win a national title is an exceptional achievement and I am so pleased for the team.”

Truro School entered a squad of six players (Louis M, Jack M, Ben T, Joe T, Callum O and Ed H), and they all contributed to the title win, securing wins against Wycliffe, Wilsons and Epsom College during the day.

Dan Sanderson, Truro School’s Director of Sport, added, “To have had the privilege to watch this unfold was an honour. Knowing the heartache the team and coaching staff went through in 2019, when they came second by a few points, has made this even more special. We couldn’t be more proud of the team. A special thank you to coach Tim Smith, whose energy and passion has driven the team to this point, and also to guest coaches Alison and Jamie, who ensured Truro were in safe hands. The attention to detail from the coaches and the dedication from the boys makes this title a richly deserved one.”

A more detailed match report will follow soon.
