The final for the 2018/19 Durham and Cleveland Lockforce Handicap Squash Cup took place at Redcar on Wednesday 3rd April.

Aycliffe ladies, who are sponsored by Pulman Cars, were up against Leyburn ladies with just a 1 shot advantage.

Having had a tough season in the league, underdogs Aycliffe ladies, who play at the Oakleaf Sports Complex, went on to secure a storming 4 rubbers to 1 victory. The team comprises Karina Dixon, Stephanie Storry, Carole Dixon , Sarah Aisbitt and Sharon Chapman (with Meryl Graham in reserve).

Two rubbers were won by 3 games to 0, one was won 3-1, and one by 3-2, with the other being narrowly lost 3-2. An excellent effort by all members of the team.

A deserved win by Aycliffe ladies squash team and a great end to the season. If you want to get into squash, whatever level you are, please check out the website or call the Oakleaf on 01325 300600.
