MIKE Sturgeon has been crowned Solihull Arden Squash Club's Handicap Final winner after overcoming Paul Whatcott.
Sturgeon has only recently returned to the game after a long absence and has had to work hard to regain match fitness. Despite that, the handicapper still gave him a tough task to overcome, making him play off -30. Whatcott has greatly improved his fitness levels since joining the club and was asked to play off -3.
Sturgeon started well in game one, clawing back a large chunk of the deficit and despite a brief charge from Whatcott, ensured he held on to go 1-0 ahead.
Whatcott started well in game two but Sturgeon was in determined mood and went on to take it, together with the match and the title.
The club's Racketball Handicap competition has just begun with a record entry and one of the reasons Solihull Arden won the National Club of the Year award was the wide programme of competitions that are held for players of all abilities.
