Junior County Tournament a big hit
Following a successful Junior County Closed last year, we had even more juniors entering this year. The Staffordshire Squash Junior County Closed took place on Saturday the 1st of October at Burton Manor Sports Association in Stafford. We had 30 juniors competing over 5 different age categories.
There was a real buzz that day amongst the juniors and parents alike. For some juniors, it was their first experience of playing in a tournament and the round robin format meant they had 3 matches each minimum.
Well done to all our juniors who took part and our new county champions. The match of the tournament had to be the U15s final between Jack and Olly, a repeat of the U13 final last year. It went to 5 games and couldn’t have been any closer. The standard of play was outstanding and both boys showed remarkable mental strength. In addition, their attitude and sportmanship was great to see.
A big thank you to all the parents for supporting them and running them to the venue. We would also like to say a massive thank you to Keith from K D Autos Limited for sponsoring the event and his very generous donation. Additionally, thanks goes out to Burton Manor Sports Association for enabling us to run this event, for the use of their courts and facilities and a huge shout out to their coaches Shaun and Nick for all their efforts without which this tournament wouldn’t have been possible.
