My club took part in a 26-hour squash marathon. We raised over £3000 for St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds which looks after terminally ill patients. All in memory of a former member of Rothwell Squash club.
We played in a relay type fashion non-stop from 4 pm on Friday through to 6 pm on Saturday. Everyone got to play everyone else at least once, sometimes twice. The most time you’d get between games was just over one hour.
The first part of the marathon was pretty easy. It started getting difficult on the stretch from 3 am to around 9 am. Your body just wants to sleep, but just as you are beginning to feel sleepy you’re back on the court for another burst of adrenaline!
All in all a great experience though and I would definitely do it again.
We even got published in the local newspaper, although the link has since expired! 🙁
