Thurso Squash Club    

Yes itís that time again, put away the golf clubs, running shoes and football boots dust down that squash racquet and make your way down to Thurso & District Squash Club. Over thirty players from the local community did just recently for the Annual Handicap Squash competition, once again very kindly sponsored by the UKAEA.

Holding the Banner are some young stars for the future.

In the final of the Plate, Alistair Miller, a Shift Chemist with UKAEA played well hitting the ball with accuracy and power but young Stephen Bremner, a pupil from the town Secondary School dug deep and kept his cool choosing his moments well hitting some good winning returns to win the Plate Competition in the decisive third game.

In the final of the main event, Carole Mowat a School Teacher, and Dougie Sinclair an employee of Mitsui Babcock were both feeling the effects of some punishing battles throughout the weekend to reach the final of this the 8th Competition sponsored by the UKAEA. Dougie tried his heart out but Carole was producing some excellent drop shots and volleys. Dougie did manage to pull back some of the handicap differential, actually reaching positive figures in the first game, but Carole kept plugging away, took both games convincingly and duly picked up the UKAEA Challenge cup for the first time.

Guy Owen, the Head of Safety at Dounreay and himself a competition entrant, was on hand to make the presentation. He commented on how good the competition was and that he was delighted on behalf of the UKAEA to be able to support the Club in this way.
