Abbeydale is the first event we have ever run in Sheffield, a city famous in the racketball world for 3 large clubs all within a few minutes’ drive of each other, Abbeydale, Hallamshire and Fullwood making it was a predictably large turnout for the event. The club also houses one of only three all glass squash courts in the UK and we were lucky enough to be able to use it for the tournament adding another dimension to the event and resulting in some great photos!
