Wells & Young Wimbledon Cup, London, England

Menís Final Ė Tom Richards bt Adrian Waller 11/6, 9/11, 11/6 11/3

Tom Richards took the menís Wimbledon Cup against Adrian Waller in a high quality and very fast paced match.  Tomís speed of recovery at times was incredible and Adrian put him under plenty of pressure throughout much to his credit.  Tom started at a very high pace and held a very high position in the court taking the ball as early as possible to take a 7-3 lead in the first.  Towards the end of the first Adrian started to work his way back into the match and began to stretch Tom around the court but Tom held on to take the game 11-6.   Another good start in the second from Tom opened up a 5-2 lead but this time Adrian began his recovery earlier to go into a 7-6 lead.  From here the rallies became frantic but the level of accuracy and skill from both players remained very high.  Adrian finished the game strongly from 9-9 and forced Tom into a couple errors to level the match.  Not much could separate the players now, but Tom kept a slight lead during the third and from 7-6 up he applied some great pressure to win the next four rallies.  The momentum was firmly with Tom going into the fourth and there was no holding him back from here, as he built up and 8-2 lead with some outstanding squash.  Tom took the title on his first match point at 10-3 and was delighted to get the win.

Both Tom and Adrian have improved hugely over the past year and their futures in the game look very bright. 

Thank you to all the players who have made the event a huge success this weeknd!

Lloyd-Walter Lifts Wimbledon Cup In London

England's Dominique Lloyd-Walter justified her top-billing in the Women's Wells & Young Wimbledon Cup by lifting the WISPA World Tour Tour 4 squash trophy at Wimbledon Rackets & Fitness in London.

But after reaching the final without dropping a game, the 29-year-old former world No18 from Guildford was taken to four games by rapidly-improving teenager Emily Whitlock, the fourth seed.

Whitlock, the 17-year-old English Junior U19 champion from Colwyn Bay, celebrated her maiden appearance in a Tour final after beating France's 24-year-old Celia Allamargot in the previous round.

But Lloyd-Walter had to call upon all her experience to overcome the youngster 11-4, 11-5, 5-11, 11-8 to earn her second Tour title of the year - and the eighth of her career.
