Junior Grand Prix squash tournament at the Olympiad, Chippenham

Great Turnout for Junior Squash Grand Prix in Chippenham

Juniors from across Wiltshire and Avon headed to Chippenham at the weekend for the eagerly awaited Grand Prix squash tournament. With a field of 30 players from across the region, and various playing abilities from beginners to advanced, it promised to be a great day for junior squash!

Joseph Fry (Salisbury) won the Grade 1 beginners category, narrowly beating local boy Harry Britten in a tight final. Swindon twins Edward and Oliver Taylor thrashed it out in a close Grade 2 final with Edward finally conquering his brother to win 11-9 11-8.

In the Grade 3 category (intermediate), Marlborough’s Thomas Hole took the winner’s trophy with a decisive win over Alexander Fordham from Salisbury. In the final match of the day, the Grade 4 crown was taken by Lewis Davies, also from Marlborough, who secured an impressive 11-9 13-11 victory, overcoming a strong threat in the shape of Bristol’s Mackenzie Dutton.

Huge well done to all the children that took part and enjoyed a really fun day of junior squash.
