InterQuest Group’s UK Recruitment Squash Tournament took place at Canary Wharf’s Classic court last Friday, raising £10,000 for Cancer Research UK, and secondary charities CLIC Sargent, MacMillan and Marie Curie.
The tournament was won by leading global executive search consultancy firm Execuzen by beating the NHS team by a total of 91 points to 72.
The tournament was the brainchild of one of InterQuest Group PLC founding Directors, Matt Crawcour, a former professional squash player himself who commented: “The first ever InterQuest Squash tournament has been a huge success and very well received by the corporate and squash community in the Square Mile. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has donated money and helped us to achieve our target of raising a total of £10,000 for Cancer Research UK and secondary charities CLIC Sargent, MacMillan and Marie Curie.
Matt Crawcour goes on to say: It has been a wonderful opportunity for the average league squash player to experience playing on the professional all-glass Canary Wharf Classic court whilst raising money for charity. The finals between Execuzen and the NHS were highly competitive and the squash of a very high standard, with only a total of 19 points separating the two teams!! On behalf of InterQuest Group Plc I would like to thank Canary Wharf Classic Tournament Directors Peter Nicol MBE and Tim Garner for all their generous support of our tournament and for allowing us to use the court for the finals.”
Colleague Software – recruitment software provider to InterQuest – was pleased to support the tournament. Mike Granger, Director at Colleague Software said,
“This was a fantastic afternoon of top quality squash and a worthwhile event to support – we really enjoyed it and look forward to supporting it again next year!”
