The new 2019-20 season of the Essex Junior Squash grand prix took place at The Connaught Club in Epping on 8th September.
Grace (year 3) started the new season in the way she wants to continue by taking the year 4 and under medal winning this match 11-5 11-7. As there were only two entries Grace was also pitted against the year 6 and under division to give her extra experience. Grace did not disappoint, winning two of these matches 2-0 and against the actual winner of the section she lost 2-1 however she shocked her opponent by winning a game against her. What a way to start the new season. 

First time debutante to the junior squash grand prix series, Kyan (year 4) entered the year 4 and under section. In his first official tournament Kyan battled five matches over the course of the day and in every match his game noticeably improved. He gained so much  that in his fourth match of the day Kyan won a game from the other boy with scores of 9-11 11-8 5-11. A brilliant start to his squash career, I expect to see much more in the future.
