On Saturday we hosted the first of what we hope will be a series of Junior Graded Events in Leicestershire. Most of our juniors, and 14 juniors from Hinckley Squash Club came and played in different graded groups. We added an F grade, to allow the Minisquashers to play alongside the older players, doing minisquash games with Laura, or the slightly older ones, doing their "Off the Squash Wall" level 1 skills with Steve.
There were then E - A grade games, with the C grade being the largest group. On the whole the organisers from both clubs had got the juniors in the correct group. The juniors also gained marking experience.
Thanks go to Craig Wilson from All Vehicle Parts who sponsored the event, and coaches Anthony Tetley, Laura Holding, Steve and Alison Avil from MHSRC and Cathy Brown from Hinckley Squash for helping the juniors mark, along with Oscar Dean, Adam Stamp and Rory McGuire who helped with the groups as well.
Congratulations go to all the players - we are looking forward to the next one!
