Congratulations to Madeline Perry and Arthur Gaskin who were crowned Irish Squash National Champions on Sunday in Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club.
Aisling Blake pushed world number four Perry all the way and with the match all square at 2-2, Perry had to be at her best in the fifth to seal her 13th title.
Carlow’s Arthur Gaskin won a very well earned first Nationals Title, defeating last years champion John Rooney. Gaskin got off to a blistering start and looked like a man on a mission taking the early lead. Rooney tied up at 1-1 but Gaskin pushed on and was not going home without the title, he closed out the match with a 3-1 victory.
Madeline Perry bt Aisling Blake 7-11, 11-8, 11-8, 9-11, 11-7
Arthur Gaskin bt John Rooney 11-7, 14-16, 11-3, 11-6
