Two Mersea School pupils Lucy (year 6) and Grace (year 3) traveled to Nottingham at the weekend to contest the Inter County Championships with the best of the best from England's 48 counties on behalf of Essex  County Junior Squash as part of their girls under 11 team, Lucy as seed two and Grace as seed 3.

They all won one of their matches to finish in 6th position. Some great experience gained at Nottingham Squash Club which has ten courts and then day two at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground (inside the hallowed gates) where there are four courts available.

Grace's giant serve catching many an experienced player out and Lucy's determination to never give up on a ball saw some others tumble. Both girls were part of the Essex School Games the day before.
