The final grand prix of the season held at Connaught, Chingford was a resounding success for Mersea School.
Four of the 12 championship placings on offer went to past and present members of Mersea School.

Amelie (year 5) won the girls year 6 and under group for the day and overall championship for the eight events combined, Felicity (year 6) taking reserve champion position.
The champion and reserve champion in each group win a training session with Ben Coleman (world squash ranking 55), and Lexden squash head coach Paul Allen on 9th July.

George (year 4) found himself in the toughest Year 6 and under group this time around, and justifiably so when, with two years still left to play in this age category, George took a game from the eventual winner achieving something no-one else could do on the day. Ruby (year 5) placed in 4th just behind Felicity in the girls year 6 and under top section. Leonie (year 5) showing some great personal improvement this time around playing with more confidence and scoring up to 8 points against her rivals. Hugh (year 3) captured his first match win at this event showing great improvement in a short space of time.

Mersea School pupils have a great work ethic on court, they fight for every point, they are magnanimous in victory and they are gracious in defeat, and come back trying harder. They abide by fair play rules and respect those they play against. They should all be applauded for their hard work and brilliant manners on and off the court at all events.
