Inter County call-ups

Lucy and Emma (year 5) and Grace (year 2) have all received their maiden call-ups to represent Essex Junior Squash at an Inter County Friendly tournament against Kent and Middlesex later this month. All three girls attend Monday night game practice at Mersea Mica Center and Off The Wall Squash Squads during the week too. This kind of exposure to competitive tournaments can only be a bonus to the development of the Mersea School Team who have been in great form the last few years and grown in strength yearly.

Grace's brother George (year 6) also got a call up to represent  Essex County, but one step further at the full Inter County final weekend 23rd/24th February. George narrowly missed out competing for the boys under 11 side in round one along with Hugh and Luca due to an inconveniently timed birthday and the rules allowing the children to play. However since his step up to the under 13 county squad George has impressed and secured a place after one of the original team to qualify had to pull out of the finals.
