We're pleased to announce that we've reached an exciting sponsorship agreement with Bristol-based online squash coaching provider SquashSkills, that will both support the grassroots of the game and also aid the development of the county's junior and senior squads.
After months of training, innumerable forehand (and backhand) lengths, and bucketfuls of sweat, it was time for Avon's junior squads to test their competitive mettle in the 2019 inter-county championships. Avon county junior coach John Welton takes up the story.
The Avon County Junior Closed Tournament will take place at Redland Green Squash Club (BS6 7HF) on Sunday September 29 between 9.00-16.00, and we're looking for qualified referees to officiate on the day.
Many congratulations to Karina Tyma, the new European Under-19 squash champion! Karina took the title in Prague with a three-game victory over Katie Malliff, after overcoming long-term rival and no.1 seed Elise Lazarus in the semi-final.
