“Things are getting better; I can see the carrot at the end of the tunnel” Stuart Pearce (footballer)
Quite what carrot (or possibly light! ) our great homespun philosopher had in mind when he coined this particular phrase is not entirely clear (possibly
something to do with the fortunes of one of his teams) but as, on the day that I write this, we now have a new Prime Minister, could this epigram be prescient enough to foretell an improvement in the state of the nation’s psyche? The writer suspects not (although things may be clearer by the time you receive this report) but, at times like these, when we are having something of a political nervous breakdown, nothing could be more therapeutic that the simple satisfaction and enjoyment of playing one of our sports. How important is it in these troubled times not only to be able to immerse yourself in a pleasurable activity which has nothing to do with Brexit but also to reflect on the values and ethos that are the cornerstone of the sports that we play. All in all, a balm to sooth our collective furrowed brow.
Paul Robbins writes in his report below on the evening of England’s extraordinary (and possibly in retrospect somewhat uncertain) victory in the Cricket World Cup; for the writer, whilst naturally rejoicing in England’s triumph, nothing personified these sporting values more than New Zealand’s dignity in defeat. What with Gupthill immediately signalling a six when Boult had caught Stokes (which wicket would almost certainly have given them victory) but just touching the boundary rope before he could throw it back in field, then to suffer the most cruel stroke of bad luck when Stokes accidentally deflected a possible run out throw to the boundary for six and then, to cap it all, having still managed to tie not only the match itself but also the ensuing super over, yet to lose on the arcane rules of how to resolve a double tie, all this must have been pretty hard to take but they did so (when all around were celebrating the home team’s victory) with the grace and decency that was a compliment to their overall sportsmanship. I am not sure how many of the New Zealand team play our sports but, if they do, our Founder would have immediately made them Jesters!
You will see from the reports below from our games representatives and from overseas that your Club remains in good health both here and abroadHere, between our various sports, we played a record number of matches (over 200) with a record number of different match managers. Although probably we win more than we lose, we do not, and should not, take ourselves too seriously, as our results are less important than the camaraderie engendered. The whole point of these matches is to try to marry up our playing strength with that of our opponents and normally this works well (it should be added however that, where possible, we try to win against schools, as otherwise they might no longer wish to play us!). Our Founder noted many years ago that “it is not our aim to notch up rows of successes but rather to promote friendship and good sportsmanship amongst our members and our opponents”.
You will be pleased to note that our finances remain sound under the watchful eye of our thrifty Treasurer (he even continues to reject the writer’s very reasonable dining expenses at the Garrick which he attends regularly to think deeply about the Club over the odd bottle of fine claret). As a wandering club, we are fortunate to have very few overheads and, as a result, we devote our income to matches, entertaining our opponents, enabling impecunious younger players to participate and generally to support our various games. The Committee think that it is right to spend our annual income in this way butwhere possible, to preserve the capital we have built up as a foundation for the future.
It is pleasing to see our new sport Padel thriving. For those of you (but particularly perhaps our overseas members) who do not know the game, either you can watch it on YouTube or contact the Chairman (who has a court both in Richmond and in Spain) as he will be delighted to introduce you to the mysteries of the game. Fair Americans, do not confuse Padel with Pickleball; splendid as I am told Pickleball is (notwithstanding its somewhat strange name!), its courts do not have walls off which you can play the ball and hence it does not fit the Jesters criteria of being “a court game with walls” !
The Club continues to be run efficiently thanks to the hard work of your Committee; having no facilities to argue over and no staff to contend withwe have avoided the problems of some other clubs and in general we just bash on together happily. We are a large Committee comprising different ages and talents but it works well, with the administrative burden being spread across the board. Particular thanks must go to our Secretary who has stepped so seamlessly into the shoes of his noble predecessor and also to two of our members who have stepped down this year, namely Alex Illingworth, who has been the most active and diligent Eton Fives representative (with Ronald Pattison) for many years and who now hands over to William Skjott and also Sam Beale who kindly took the Bristol area under his wing and nurtured it so well. Our thanks go to both of them for all that they have contributed and also to all of you who are match managers; without you, the Club would not be the success that it is. That said, we always need new match managers and, should any of you wish to organise a new fixture, do please contact your games representative as we are keen to expand our fixture list and particularly to involve more
young match managers and their friends in our matches.
We greatly look forward to welcoming the Australian Jesters in early September (possibly they will have been and gone by the time you receive this) and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our traditional Strawson Evening at Queens on Tuesday 8 October (incorporating our normally somewhat brief AGM); this evening was much loved by our late President, David Vaughan, and, in his honour, we hav expanded its name to the Strawson Vaughan Evening.
Finally a valediction for those members whose deaths are listed below. So many wonderful Jesters: they will be greatly missed but not forgotten.
Paul Robbins reports for UK Squash. I sit down to write this report on a sunny London evening with an additional spring in my step after watching England beat New Zealand in a Cricket World Cup final, not something an Englishman has often been able to say.
The 2018/19 season got off to its usual start with the annual Strawson Memorial Match which, as ever, proved to be a great evening of squash. I had thought that I had selected a strong team which including a former world number two and Irish international, but it soon proved that age and experience was not winning the battle against youth and energy. Some matches were close, others were not but England squash proved too strong and ran out comfortable 4-1 winners. We are excited for the 2019 fixture, not least as it will be the first time in the sixty-seven-year history of Strawson squash that we will have a ladies match. We hope that as many of you as possible can make it to The Queen’s Club to watch the squash and attend the dinner.
In March the Jesters annual dinner was held at the Royal Automobile Club with many Jesters in attendance. Chris Orriss was awarded the Jester of the year award for his tireless efforts in captaining and organising the Bath Cup. Chris had the privilege of captaining a team that included former World Formula 1 racing champion James Hunt, who I am reliably informed was a decent squash player and excellent company at the dinner table! I will allow you all to request the relevant stories from Chris next time you are in his
We continue to have a full list of fixtures across the United Kingdom and beyond and thanks to Henry Prideaux’s excellent work we have over 70 matches scheduled for the coming season. In September 2020, the UK Jesters will also be sending a team to the USA for a tour of the Mid-West. The schedule looks fantastic so I am sure all involved will have a fantastic trip.
Many congratulations to Tim Garner who recently received the award for services to squash at the annual PSAAwards ceremony. The award recognises Tim’s contribution over many years across both the professional and amateur game and is a great recognition for his endeavours with the wider squash community.
In other news, Jonathan Gliddon is the newly crowned British Open Masters champion for the over-45 age category. This is the third year running that I have had to mention Jonathan following his appointment as Chairman of England Masters Squash and the completion of the Marathon des Sables ultra-marathon in the Sahara Desert. I can assure all readers that the bar will be very high to merit a mention in the 2019/20 report.
Alex Illingworth (and Ronald Pattison) report for Eton Fives. We used to report in these annuals our win, or more often loss, ratio. However, over recent years the focus has been much more on ensuring a quality game, than a quality result. Let’s say this year ended in a honourable, but enjoyable draw. As such, hopefully we are living the Jesters ‘creed’ and achieving the most out of our odd, but rather fantastic, game.
Epitomising the levelling nature of our great game was the man I considered our senior Jester. He was a member of the club for 72 years. I am not a record keeper, nor terribly good at Maths, but that seems to be a target hard to beat. The passing of Michael Constantinidi will be rightly mentioned in the corridors of Eton Fives, but let it be said here that his contribution to the game in general, and to our dear Club was immeasurable. He will be much missed, but I am sure he would approve of the state of Jesters Eton Fives.
One of the attributes of the modern club is that we appear to have embraced the rather modern concept of ‘diversity’. Promoting the female game has not been easy for Eton Fives, given the majority of the children introduced to the game are from boys schools. Yes, our game is still dominated by men, but the Jesters in 2018/19 consistently fielded a quorum of ladies at almost every match. The mixed game has so much to offer and has given our matches, and drinks afterwards, a welcome and different angle. I feel that both Jock Burnet and Michael Constantinidi would approve.
The playing cohort continues to grow and we try to adapt to make sure there are enough places available for all to get on court. We have the flexibility of formats to suit all. Perhaps that is why I, aging as we all are, enjoyed this season all the more. I know that next season brings with it new ideas and enthusiasm in the shape of Will Skjott so please continue to study the fixture list and apply where appropriate.
Charlie Brooks reports for Rugby Fives. Looking back through the scorecards for the year, there seem to be more than usual in our favour, suggesting that we had a winning season. The accompanying match reports generally reflect triumphs of experience over youth. Whilst the result is immaterial, the combination of experience and youth has been a great success over the past few years (the majority of our fixtures continue to be against schools and universities), with the older players passing on their wealth of knowledge and embodiment of the Jesters spirit.
The Edinburgh Tour continues to go from strength to strength under new organisers Ben Hale and Dave Butler, with the move to later in January a success. There were more players than ever – the annual celebration with Fettes saw 90 attendees (a combination of Jesters, Fettes players and guests). This year saw the customary packed itinerary, playing against schools and universities, but also the usual mini-tournaments and grudge matches! Highlights included playing on the newly refurbished courts at Merchiston and the increased participation of girls – not only students, but also a record seven lady tourists. Thanks to hosts, players, drivers and, most importantly, Ben and Dave – organisers extraordinaire!
For this year’s Strawson match, we had spectators for the first time in a while (when will Queen’s build Fives courts?), with the RFA president David Bawtree setting a fantastic tradition of watching the match and joining for dinner. He was able to witness a superb match which ended, to some surprise, in an honourable draw.
As ever, a huge thanks to all those playing in and managing our fixtures. Please do get in touch if you would like to play or would like to organise a new fixture – volunteers are always welcome!
Alastair Gourlay reports for Rackets. The 2018/2019 Jesters Rackets season started with the perennial match against the T&RA at the Strawson evening in October. The Strawson being the benchmark fixture where the great and the good of the game come together to slug it out (in Jesterly fashion) at The Queen’s Club. Heavyweights of the rackets world included James Coyne and William Maltby whom came together to represent the Jesters to test the young and the mighty from the T&RA. All games where played in good fashion, entertaining the galleries before the players and spectators retired for the Strawson dinner.
Matches were played during the season against schoolboys, old boy association clubs and school masters throughout the country stretching from Bristol to London but the headlining news for Jesters Rackets was again the continued dominance of Jester, Lea Van Der Zwalmen in the Ladies game.
The 2019 Ladies World Championship was held at The Queen’s Club where 8 ladies entered for the right to challenge Lea for the coveted title. Being the reigning champion, Lea had to watch eagerly as the ladies were split into two groups of four with the winners of each group playing each other in a play-off for the right to challenge Lea. Georgie Willis took that honour after beating India Deakin 2-1 in a thrilling match. In the challenge match, Lea continued to show her dominance and talent within the ladies game and won 3-0 to be crowned champion. A wonderful achievement. Other highlights were Tom Billings and Richard Owen challenging for the World Doubles championship in New York and London. However, they were unable to unseat James Stout and Jonathon Larken from their perch. However not all was lost in vain as Tom Billings has earned himself
the right to challenge for the singles in this year’s World Singles challenge where he will play Alex Duncliffe-Vines.
I would like to thank all the match managers who worked tirelessly to put together teams to play in the various fixtures, but in particular, Bruce Burnett who has been on a recruitment drive throughout various schools and the country.
Serve up and Play for the 2019/2020 season!
Adam Dolman reports for Tennis. It has been another frantic season for the Jesters Club’s Real Tennis contingent with over 30 matches held at almost all the courts across the country from Jesmond Dene to the Hyde, Bridport together with participation on the ancient courts of South West France in the Trois Tripots.
There were too many matches to mention them all but as usual our season got underway with the annual Frank Strawson Memorial Match (Jesters v T&RA) held at Queens in October; 20 participants, five matches, two parent/child partnerships (the Quarrys and the Garsides) all ending in a draw (as quite often happens!).
Brian Sharp was once again at the reins for the annual fixture at Lords for a reported 101st consecutive year (is this a typo or is Brian possibly older than he appears!). Most of the MCC team were also Jesters and a close fought contest ended in a narrow victory for the home team (no tie or super over needed here!).
It was splendid to hear of the new match against Wellington where Chris Kurkjian reported an absolute nail-biter with the hosts just squeaking home; Peter Mallinson nobly represented both sides and the Jesters, amongst other stars, were pleased to have Lea van der Zwalmen playing for them. A huge thank you to Hardwick House, that most delightful of venues, for housing four Jesters fixtures over the season; the LRTA match in October, the Army fixture in January, the match against the Brigands in February and the match against Hardwick themselves in April. All brilliant fixtures with a great mix of lady and gentleman members, delicious lunches, log fires, dogs aplenty and some most entertaining tennis.
Queens is another marvellous location for some of our matches; not only the match against the club itself but also our matches against the All England Club (surely they should honour the origins of their modern game by building a court which they could clearly afford, I hear you say!) and also against the Hurlingham Pigeons (a match for which the David Vaughan salver in true Jesters tradition goes to the losing team). Competition to be selected for these matches is intense and they each involved over 30 people sitting down to dinner afterwards.
Another ex-chairman of the Club ( Maurice Baring ) is remembered in the annual Baring Memorial Match at Petworth each February. This year the Jesters team assembled variously from Holland, Scotland, Jesmond and Oxford and their pre-match training consisting of some fine food and wine over dinner at the Brahams’ lovely house the night before seems to have paid off
Simon Sanders reports on our annual contest at Jesmond Dene that our team had the benefit of such stalwarts as our ex over 70 world champion Robin Barlow (and his dog Nutkin), that formidable Dutch double Theo and Lucie Bollerman, David Pinsent from Sydney (via Ireland) and the Scottish mafia of Alex Todrick, Scott Thomson and himself.
Having raced into a 3-0 lead before an excellent lunch, victory somehow eluded them thereafter. Was it the lunch or perhaps the champagne, another Sanders’ foible, as, under his rule, all players stop and imbibe a glass of champagne whenever the winning gallery is hit; in this case, play was stopped 10 times. It all sounds suitably Jesterly!
In addition to our fixtures, the year also saw two marvellous achievements by Jester members in the tennis world. The first was the amazing victory of Rob Fahey over Camden Riviere to regain his world title in a series of matches which produced a quality of tennis rarely, if ever, seen before. To have Rob and his wife Claire ( the Ladies World Champion) in our ranks is a privilege. The second was the noble peregrination by the Earl of Wessex who played on every court in the world to raise funds for our Patron’s
Award Scheme. His visits were greatly enjoyed by all the clubs concerned and his admirable feat not only raised a considerable sum for a most worthy cause but also hopefully introduced many young players to the game.
So Jesters tennis continues to flourish. We look forward to receiving the Australian Jesters in early September and soon we hope the new court in Bordeaux will be finished so that we can resume matches down there. Chris Ronaldson will no doubt assist greatly in their renaissance and we are proud that Chris has accepted to be an honorary Jester (adding another world champion to our ranks!).
Finally, a big thank you to all the match managers and many Jesters who regularly play in these fixtures and to all the clubs who house our nomadic needs.
Tim Edwards reports for Padel. Jesters Padel fixtures are certainly ‘a moveable feast’ with bad weather restricting the number of matches but there is an optimistic and increased list of fixtures for this year so please let the match managers know if you are interested in playing. Padel continues to grow in popularity in the UK together with the numbers of Jesters discovering and enjoying the sport.
British Padel, the UK governing body, have entered into a ‘strategic alliance’ with the LTA which will mean official government and Sports Council recognition of Padel. The LTA are keen to develop Padel to become a major participation sport in the future and will therefore promote it to Tennis clubs and offer funding for court installation. Several private companies are also offering funding for courts for sports clubs or educational facilities and the future of the sport looks positive.
Robert Mosier (President of the United States Jesters) reports for the United States. The U.S. branch of the Jesters remains a very active and engaged group. Currently we have approximately 495 members with 7 additional members living outside of the United States. This past month, we elected a class of 20 new members representing all regions within the United States including 9 new female members bringing the total of women members to 21. A majority of the newly elected Jesters came to us through the squash world however there is a slight uptick with more and more racquets and court tennis players becoming Jesters. The geographic diversity of our branch continues to expand. While we still count New York City and Philadelphia as our two largest contingents, this year’s largest additions came from Boston(6), Denver(2), and San Francisco(4). From an age perspective, the oldest is 64, youngest 34, with an average age 49.
James Zug, Jr. class of 1999, continues to be our U.S. Representative and trusted advisor. A new website at www.usjesters.org has been running since last September. We have achieved about 90% of Jesters now opening emails and this has become a new and inexpensive way to communicate with our nationwide membership. Members are currently using the website to sign up for our annual weekend that will be hosted in Boston from 25-29th September, 2019. We are just now beginning to promote merchandise and haberdashery on the site. The site is also an excellent repository of photographs for our recent events. Any international Jester who would like to visit the site should contact our IT guru, Preston Quick, who will provide a password and login instructions Preston.Quick@USSquash.com
The U.S. Jesters Club continues to publish a twice-yearly magazine. The magazine provides a good update on activities, including obituaries of two of our most celebrated members, Darwin Kingsley and Eben Hardie, both past chairs of US Squash.
The U.S. branch of the Jesters Club also continues its active support and underwriting of the games we love. This includes (a) financial support for intercollegiate non-varsity squash round robin tournaments throughout the United States for approximately thirty colleges and universities, and (b) the U.S. Jesters Club also helped underwrite the U.S. Open in racquets and the National League in court tennis.
The highlight of our annual calendar continues to be the Annual Weekend. This past year(2018), it was held in St. Louis. About 75 Jesters plus their spouses convened for three days of social events, culture outings, golf and of course squash. Jesters from around the globe are invited to sign up and attend.
As you may read in Volume 4 of the U.S. Jesters magazine, we had a squash tour of South Africa for 5 Jesters and their significant others. Finally, we will have the first mini Canada Tour take place mid-summer.
All in all, the U.S. Jesters chapter is alive and well with a full agenda that denotes progress.
Jon LeHeup (Chairman of the Canadian Jesters) reports for Canada. I am pleased to report that this past year has been a successful one for our Club. Our growing membership is spread across five regions. Our financial position is solid. Jim Coons (ON) marked his 50th anniversary as a Jester in 2018.
The Ontario / Quebec Jesters University League continued to grow. You can keep abreast of what is happening by going to http://ontariojestersclub.com/juniordevelopment/jesters-university-squash-league-ontario-and-quebec. We hope that this league will serve as a template for similar leagues across the country.
The 2018 Lapham-Grant Matches were held in Chicago. For more details go to https://www.laphamgrant.com/category/2018-chicago/ .
Atlantic Jesters focused once again on organizing the Junior Jesters Summer Squash Camp that was held in Moncton with 25 juniors from all four Atlantic Provinces attending.
British Columbia Jesters annual event included the Jesters Doubles Tournament held in February, the June Doubles Calcutta and Golf Day followed by an informal dinner plus the formal Christmas Dinner and the fall and spring meetings. The BC Club also supports junior squash in the province through direct financial sponsorship of two major junior tournaments, the Jericho Junior Open in Vancouver and the Jester Pacific Northwest Junior Championships held in Victoria where a combined 358 juniors participated.
We also continue to raise money for the 20/20 endowment fund, which supports provincial junior development programs, by donating the proceeds from the Jesters Doubles Tournament and the Calcutta Event.
Ontario Jesters hosted the University League finals at Mayfair Lakeshore in February where 8 Men’s and 8 Women’s teams played off in two divisions. It was a tremendously exciting day of nail-biting team squash. Upset champions were crowned with U of T Women’s and Queen’s Men’s both with 4-3 wins. This year, Squash Ontario is providing more administrative support for the league and helping us integrate this year’s finals with the OUA championships.
This past October two Jesters were recognized at The Western University Sports Hall of Fame dinner. Jack Fairs (1980) received one of the first Lifetime Achievement Awards for his decades as coach of Western’s impressive squash program and Scott Stoneburgh added to his Hall of Fame entries going in as an Individual athlete.
Quebec Jesters (in both Montreal and Gatineau/Ouatouais regions) contributed to their primary mission of supporting junior and university squash during the 2017-2018 season. Local Jesters contributed time and effort in coaching Quebec’s promising young players organizing tournaments, other events.
2018 marked the beginning of a rebuilding period for the Prairie Jesters. Good progress is being made.
In November, just prior to the 35th annual Alberta Junior Jesters Tournament, we held a doubles and social event that included Prairie Jesters from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, as well as some visiting Jesters from British Columbia. We also took this opportunity to honour some of our earliest Jesters, two of whom, Sam Safton and Robert
Hall, were able to join us.
Our key event of the year, the 36th Annual Alberta Junior Jesters tournament, was held at the Calgary Winter Club. There were 181 juniors entered from every province in Canada and a few from the United States.
Finally, I would like to thank all members of the Regional and the National Executive Committees for their support, enthusiasm and achievements. Together with several colleagues I will be stepping down in April and handing over to John Hungerford. It has been an honour and a pleasure to occupy this office.
Garth Van Rensburg (Chairman of the South African Jesters) reports for South Africa. The Jester chapter down on the southern tip of Africa have celebrated another busy year. Our Regions have remained active with the Gauteng bunch playing 18 fixtures over the year. Our national objective remains to introduce younger and more active squash players into the Jester movement whilst keeping the organization as one of which players strive to be part of. To this end our coaches have remained actively involved in development squash and especially the Egoli Squash movement who continue to dominate junior squash in Gauteng.
At the completion of our National Under 23 series in August we selected a combined Men’s and Ladies National U-23 team that played two ‘Test’ matches against the South African Legends on the all-glass court at Brooklyn Mall in Pretoria. It was wonderful to have the shopping crowds gathered at the central arena to watch our youngsters perform. And perform they did, causing some serious upsets against their older more fancied opposition. With our junior schedule overcrowded currently, we plan to hold one National tournament this year giving the two winners fully paid visits to the UK in order to play and train with some of the top PSA players over there. One of the most pleasing achievements in this agreement is the partnering with the South African U23 Knights Team, led by Jester Steve Doeg, in making this tournament part of the selection criteria for their tour of the United Kingdom.
In September we welcomed one of the strongest USA teams ever to visit our shores Captained ably from the front by Californian Alex Dean. They were, in the Jester tradition, victorious on and off the court and it was a pleasure hosting them. As one of our senior Jesters commented, ‘will they ever run out of energy?’ Sadly, one of their number, Eben Hardie, passed away recently and our condolences go to his wife Mimi and their family.
The Whiteley Award for contribution to the South African Jesters Club was awarded this year to Natal Chairman, Ralph Collis, for many years’service to our Club and indeed provincial squash in that region. We were delighted to be presented a new trophy, the Rex Pennington Award, by the Pennington family to honour Rex who was our longest
serving Jester in South Africa (1948). The committee made the decision to award the trophy to the culprit who had made the greatest Jesterly Gaffe of the year. The one-man Melvill committee decided to award the trophy to the Chairman for a minor indiscretion.
Jonathan Buckley (Australian Representative) reports for Australia. IThe 2018/2019 Australian Jesters tennis season has marked time between hosting the US Jesters in Australia and our tour of the United Kingdom in September this year.
Australian Jesters total 99 in number, where we have recently boosted our Tasmanian contingent to 17, second only to Melbourne. Two amongst our ranks passed away during the year: Richard Searby AO QC who became a Jester in 1953 while at Oxford University, where he was awarded a Tennis blue. And Graeme Holloway, a distinguished Tasmanian, elected as a Jester in 2009. A board member of Tennis Australia and former state grass court champion, in 2015 Graeme won the first of two consecutive World
Over-65 Real Tennis singles championships.
In August the Royal Melbourne Tennis Club hosted its annual Jesters match, with the following Jesters playing: Owen Guest, Jason Gray, David Lloyd Jones, Alasdair Norton, Richard Allen, Rudi Michelson, Paul Wheeler, Jonathan Buckley, Andrew Gould, Tom Daly, Howard Mason and Michael Carroll. As is custom, a fine duck and port dinner followed into the evening.
In November, the Tasmanian Jesters welcomed some travelling mainland Jesters, to play the Hobart Real Tennis Club. Coinciding with the Jim Cartledge weekend (former Jester and HTRC stalwart), playing Jesters were: Andrew Gould, Justin Legg, Jonathan Buckley, John Faull, Graeme Bradfield and Dick Friend. We enjoyed one of Hobart Tennis Club’s famous dinners, prepared by the Richards and friends.
The Australian Jesters touring members are busy sanding their racquets, in preparation for the UK tour in September 2019. The team comprises Howard Mason (and Suzanne), Dick Friend (and Julie), Tom Daly, Nicholas Rooke, Andrew Gould (and Merrin) and Jonathan Buckley (and Katie). By the time you have read this report, the party will have toured eleven clubs in two weeks, having reacquainted with old, and made many new, friends.
