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.
