Tim Burrell

Men’s Over 45’s Captain

Why did you become an Inter County Team Captain?
I decided to organise Berkshire’s County Teams because I really enjoy playing for the county. Also, it keeps me in touch with a lot of the players I have played with since I was a junior and keeps me motivated to try and get into the team and play more competitive squash against other counties.

What do you enjoy the most about playing for Berkshire?
I have played for Berkshire since I was just out of junior squash and I enjoy representing the county against other counties in competitive matches. Weekends of squash as a team are great for team spirit and socialising with team mates.

Where and when did you start playing squash?
I began playing at the Windsor club, when I was 11 (a long time ago!). Sadly, the club no loger exists, but we had some great times there.

Who was your biggest influencer in the game?
My dad introduced me to squash and I played competitively with my brother for years. At Windsor we were lucky enough to have some very talented players who would give me court time.

What was your most important squash development?
I was quite a late squash developer – I probably played and improved most during my 20s, when I started playing a wider group of players and getting more experience.

What was your most significant squash event?
My first age group Home Internationals – I managed to qualify for England over 35s in my first year in the age group and we won the competition in Glasgow.

What is your proudest squash moment?
2 years after my first over 35 home internationals I was selected as captain of the England national team. We played in Dublin and managed to win the weekend.

What other squash successes have you had?

  • As a student I played for English universities and we played in Belfast against the Welsh, Scottish and Irish university teams.
  • I have qualified 3 times for the England over 35s and 3 times for the over 40s (although the 3rd time there were no home internationals due to Covid).
  • I was Berkshire Mens Champion in 2008/09 and also 2013/14.
