Great Britain Dominate at WUCS 2018 12/09/2018

Having won both Individual gold medals on Sunday evening, Great Britain added the Team Championship gold to their collection. 

Despite a tricky Semi-Final against Hong Kong, Great Britain reigned victorious against top seed and defending champions Malaysia in the World University Squash Team Championship Final. 

There was a sense of déjà vu within the glass court as Joshua Masters and Lily Taylor re-enacted their Individual Semi-Final fixtures. 

Having lost in the Semi-Final yesterday, Masters was first to take the court redeeming himself with a convincing 3-0 win (11-5, 11-8, 11-6) against Malaysia's Safiq Kamal.

Taylor then stepped up to face Aika Azman, winning 3-1 (11-6, 11-8, 9-11, 11-8). This sealed GB's fate to attain the World University Squash Team Championship gold in addition to the Individual Men's and Women's titles won by the British pair on Sunday.

 The Team Final marked the end of the University World Squash Championships in Birmingham. The next Squash World University Championships will be held in Shanghai in 2020.

Congratulations to our Great Britain representatives!
