England Celebrate In Riccione

Already women's champions of the world, England maintained its status as the leading squash nation in the region by retaining both titles in the European Team Championships in the Italian resort of Riccione in some style - beating Netherlands in both the men's and women's finals without dropping a single match.

England faced second seeds Netherlands in the women's final for the fifth year in a row. But after Londoner Alison Waters beat Margriet Huisman 9-0, 9-4, 9-0 in just 25 minutes, England No1 Tania Bailey overpowered former world champion Vanessa Atkinson 9-2, 9-2, 9-2 to clinch the title for the top seeds. In the dead rubber, Vicky Botwright beat Annelize Naude 9-0, 10-8 to deny the Dutch a consolation point.

The triumph marked England's 30th title in a row - extending the nation's remarkable unbeaten run in the history of the tournament.

In the women's event, Denmark ended in the top three for the first time since 2001; Ireland marked its return to the top eight (at No5) after last year's surprise exit; Switzerland recorded its best finish (sixth place) since 2001; hosts Italy equalled its best ever finish in the tournament of 10th place; and newcomers Russia completed the event in 18th place.
