League team members

Joss Garvey President


I started playing squash at University and have carried on since then. I was a player in Cheshire Ladies Squash League from its beginning. I played for Cheshire in the Inter County Leagues. I started in refereeing when my children were small as I would take them to tournaments and used the spare time coaching and refereeing. This then took over. I was a European referee and have officiated at Local, County, National, European events and 2 Commonwealth Games. I have refereed all round Europe, India and Egypt. I then, with the help of the great legacy of refereeing in the North West, I went onto become a senior England Squash Tutor. When travelling, I realised that our league is so important to the wellbeing of our game. We are the largest and best squash league in the world because it is so well organised. I am so pleased to be part of this splendid league.
