Worms won European Club Championships in Prague!

After their 2 final attempts in 2009 (lost 1-3 to Aberdeen) and 2011 (lost 1-3 to Paderborn) Worms claimed the European Club Championships title for the 1st time

Black & White Worms claimed the titles in the 2012 European Club Championships in the Czech Republic capital Prague.

A dramatic men’s final saw Black & White Worms, the 5th seeds, disappoint home hopes by defeating Buldoci Praha, the No4 seeds from Prague, 3/1 to win the European Squash Federation title for the 1st time.

Buldoci pulled off the shock of the tournament in the quarter-finals by ousting defending champions Paderborn, the German club which won the title for a record 7th time last year – beating Worms in the final.

The men’s final went down to the last match as David Palmer put Worms 1-0 ahead, Gregory Gaultier leveled for host Praha. Marcus Berrett put Worms back in front with a 3-0 win and Andre Haschker took the game Worms needed to become European Clubs champions.
