2022 Home Internationals - Chairmans Comment
After an enforced two-year absence the Masters Internationals were back and 14 England Masters teams competed over the four weekends in Galway, Edinburgh, Nottingham and Cardiff.  There was some fantastic Squash, great renewed camaraderie and all the ups and downs of high-class sport.  A thank you to all the players who represented England so passionately and a special thank you to our Internationals Organiser Allen Barwise in his first year in the role.

In case you were wondering, England won 11 Championships and Ireland, Scotland and Wales 1 each.  A number of 3/2 wins went our way and there were many thrilling contests.
Long may they continue.

  Home Internationals   

England is off to a good start in the 2022 Home Internationals.  They are champions in two of the four age groups with both the MO40's and WO35/40's winning.  The MO60's had an "all to play for" final match against the Irish and they narrowly lost 3 strings to 2. Unfortunately, our WO60's team were beaten by the Welsh and Scottish and came third in the standings.

Registration of England Squash Masters as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation
In view of the growth of ESM events, the Committee has undertaken a review of the ESM structure to ensure it continues to protect the interests of ESM and the players in ESM events. As a result of this, the Committee will propose at the players meeting on 1st April 2022 that a new Constitution is adopted as part of a process to register ESM as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

The Committee believe that this step is necessary and appropriate to allow ESM to continue to develop and grow participation in masters events. A document explaining the rationale for this proposed change is available here. The new Constitution can be viewed here and the associated Bylaws can be viewed here. If players would like any further information or have any questions, please contact the Secretary at [email protected]
