Beaconsfield Squash Club was built in 1972/3 by Lord Burnham on land that was owned by him. Today, we are a members club and lease our premises from the Burnham Estate.
The club was opened in June 1973 by Judge Lawrence Verney who at one time played squash for Wales. His challenge was that he could beat any player the first time he played them, and proved it by winning a match against Jonny Leslie (who later became the last British Amateur Champion).
Well known former members include: Jonny Leslie and Phil Kenyon who represented England; Stuart Davenport - the New Zealand number one; Sue Devoy, who for a number of years was the Ladies World Champion; Dick Carter who rose to prominence as a Senior.
During the 1970's the club provided almost the entire Buckinghamshire squash team.
