East Regional Junior vs The Snow

Main Image

The East Region Junior Tournament was held on the 9th and 10th of December at Ipswich Sports Club. With great support from all the Regional associations (Beds, Cambs, Essex, Herts, Norfolk and Suffolk) there were almost 120 entrants in age groups from U9 to U19. The number of players was on a par with last season with the younger age grouips particularly strong while the older age groups perhaps suffered from the England Squash decision not to award ranking points for this season's Regional events.

 

One scenario that was not considered by the organisers was that a snowstorm on Sunday morning would bring the Region to a standstill which was a great pity because the 120 matches on Saturday had gone without mishap. Unfortunately around 30 players couldn't get to Ipswich for the concluding rounds on Sunday, however those who did battle through produced the usual high level of competition. Girls Champion was Norfolk's Katie Cox with Hasnaat Farooqi (Herts) winning the Boys' U19 event in his last Junior season. All the results and draws are on the event website.
