On 9th July, the winners and runners up from the Junior Grand Prix Squash Series 2016/2017 received their prize winning two hour training session with Ben Coleman (based in Chelmsford world ranked number 55 squash player) and Paul Allen head coach from Lexden Squash & Racket Club, an opportunity that cannot be bought.

Six of the children were past or present members of Mersea School, showing the depth Mersea has developed since starting their squash program just two years ago. The children were put through their paces with some fun warm up games and then match play against the other lucky winners. Each child got to have an individual match with Ben, afterwards Ben posed for photographs and autographs after answering some questions the children had for him about his career.
