Hugh and Grace each had successful visits to the Connaught bronze junior tournament in Epping Forest on 27th & 28th July in the last tournament of the 2018/2019 squash season, junior squash shuts down for August  and then the tournaments all start afresh after a summer break (great for parents and children alike).

Hugh who will be returning to school in September in year 6 had a successful battle of the titans affair. Hugh, seeded 3/4 for this tournament,  battled through a 5 game match in round 1 to see him safely into round two, here he whizzed his way with a win into the final (his first ever at a bronze tournament). This time Hugh had to settle for runner up spot, but as he was seeded to come third or fourth this was a win in his books, and his highest finish at this level to date.

Grace  who returns to year 3 in September continued her run of taking the prizes by picking up a runner up medal at Connaught once again playing children an age group older than herself.
