Melbourn Squash Club are the Cambridgeshire Ladies champions for the first time in the club’s history.

Melbourn were only a handful of points away from the title prior to their penultimate match with closest challengers, and defending champions, Hunts County 1sts.

A 3-0 win for Frances Smith had Melbourn on course, and though there was a stutter when Lynne Hays was beaten 3-2, two more straight game victories for Kate Bradshaw and Sam Pluck gave them a 19-3 victory on the night.

That left the final match at Cambridge as a celebration, Melbourn winning 20-2.

Skipper Hays said: “This was a real team effort, with Kate and Frances losing only one match each throughout the season, and the rest only losing three each.”
