New Mills and Buxton squash teams have joined together so that a third team can be formed to get more people playing in the North West Counties Squash League.

Buxton convincingly beat Astra Zeneca’s seconds by a scoreline of 20-3.

Elsewhere, New Mills won 14-6 against Manchester Northern sixes, whilst the newly-formed third team lost their first match against a strong team from Radbrook Hall.

Another major change that has been introduced to club squash this season is the scoring system.

Rather than up to nine, it’s now to 15 with a point scored every rally.
