U3A Racketball Players Hold Heads Up in Competition
The Malton Squash & Racketball Club held its end-of-season Open Championships, with Men’s, Ladies and Junior Squash and Mixed Racketball competitions played over two weeks in April. Four members of the U3A Racketball Group entered the latter competition. Prizes were presented by Club Chairman, Stephen Towse, at the dinner-dance held at the Malton and Norton Golf Club on Saturday 23 April 2016, which provided a fitting end to the Club members’ athletic endeavours. In the first round of the competitions, those who lost their first game went on to play in the competition for the Plate trophy in their section. Three of the U3A players, Bob Coursey (Group Leader), Eric Wesson and Gordon Malan succeeded in getting to the semi-final of the racketball Plate. The last-named went on to play in the final against a fit, young (relative to his U3A opponent!) Marcus Lyon, who prevailed to win the Plate Trophy 3-0 (scores were 11-9, 11-6, 12-10).
