IN A tightly-fought contest with Burton last week, Ashbourne Squash Club came out worthy winners to guarantee Derbyshire Squash League promotion for the second consecutive year.
Wins for Paul Doran, Jeff Davenport, Andreas Lueer and a thriller from Tom Machell, as well as extra points from a gallant losing game from Peter Fox, meant that the home side easily picked up the points required.
Captain Fox said: “It has been a tremendous two years for the club, rising from the ashes of rock bottom in the basement decision, to two consecutive promotions, league winners last year, cup runners up and summer champions.
“The team are also in the last four of this year’s cup with a good chance of reaching the final again.”
The club are running a Saturday course at Ashbourne Leisure Centre.
The cost is £5 for the remaining five weeks, with lessons being held between 3.30 and 4.30pm and is aimed at adult beginners to intermediate level.
