The summer junior graded squash tournament was held at the NSC recently with a good entry of 29 players.

The competition promised to be hard fought and competitive with the players split into different groups according to their ability. Trophies were awarded to the first, second and third places in each group.

As there was a big entry into Group E the players were split into two pools of four and five players respectively. Group E2 soon developed into a battle between Leo Taylor and Ben Leith for the top spot. They had a good game but Taylor’s control won the day.
