Well done to all the players who competed in the Canterbury Junior Age Group Championships over the weekend at Hoon Hay Squash Club.
A very high standard of squash was on display from all age groups competing. This is a great opportunity to see our juniors playing in an Age Group Tournament. It would be wonderful to see full draws for both our Under 11 and Under 13 boys and girls next year. This tournament is open to all juniors and is a fantastic experience for a junior of any level to be involved in. Don’t miss out next year, look out for it on the 2019 Calendar.
We are currently looking for more coaches within Christchurch to help run and support our existing junior programmes and implement new programmes at local schools and clubs in 2018.
We are looking for people who are ideally available within school hours, some experience in coaching, attended or willing to attend the Big Nix training, great communicators and can interact well with juniors.
On Sunday 29th April our 1st 2100 Junior Tournament was held at Christchurch Football Squash Club. We had players with points range of 100 – 2090 entered, which allowed for 4 even divisions to be created with two divisions playing in the morning and two in the afternoon.
Rocky and Kirsty from Christchurch Football kept all players busy if they were not playing they were referring or marking a game. Games all ran to time with a very high standard of squash on display. There were many close games, Jimmy Stewart may have been a little sore and tired after he played 3 very close games all of which went to 5 sets. Great value for money from your entry fee Jimmy!
