Kent get Short Score
One of the junior girls matches at last week's inter-county
competition at Guildford between Surrey, Hampshire and Kent, playing PAR to
11, was over in just SEVEN MINUTES.
Here in Kent, we advised all league organisers that England
Squash had recommended that we all switch to PAR to 11. However, both Kent
men's leagues, the Priory League and Outer Kent League, have decided to
stick to traditional scoring. So has the Kent Junior League.
Women's League has opted to switch to PAR to 15 for this season.
We used PAR to 11 during the recent Kent County Junior
Closed. While most of the older players adapted to it without any problem,
many of the matches in the under-11 tournament were over in ten minutes
Clearly this is unacceptable and we look forward to new suggestions
from England Squash to address this problem.
