I’ve read the other topics ion this and I’ve accepted that we’re ‘giving it a go’ for the summer season. After all, what harm can it do to try?
Well I’ve just come back from a game that could have lasted an hour but in fact lasted 26 minutes. I can honestly say (with no disrespect to my opponent) that I considered dropping a game so we could get a bit more time on court. How does that sound, right or wrong?
This game of squash is my one match per week and one that I’m prepared to travel to – BUT if my time on court is significantly reduced I’m going to veto any moves to continue PAR and will campaign for others to do so too.
I know this might seem like old news but now that we’ve tried it (albeit for two weeks) I challenge anyone to come forward and give a sensible reason why you want to shorten down your precious time on court? If you’re a little overweight and always found it a struggle to last the distance then sure I can take that. But why were people like Mark Steedon, Matt Badger and others wanting to go for this when I know first hand that they enjoy a good hard match as much as the next.
There are many silent viewers of this forum but if you agree or disagree, please speak up because your opinion counts
I’ll wrap up by saying PAR is great for pros and televised sport but not for us guys in Div 1, we’re not pros (exclude about 4 players from a total of circa 50).
