The Essex Junior Closed event saw a massive turnout for the county's best players, all keen to add their names to the coveted trophies

In all there were 9 past and present Mersea School pupils over a range of age groups.

In the Under 11 boys plate draw, Henry and Felix , both new to Essex Squash, and certainly this level of tournament, both scored some great victories to place 4th and 5th respectively in the Plate section, extremely good work for a first outing.

The Girls Under 11’s saw newcomers Amelie , Felicity and Ruby  battle it out with Essex ranked girls 1 & 2 to take home 4th, 5th and 6th places between them.

Past pupil Olivia came so close in the Girls Under 13’s winning all her matches in the group stage 3-0, no one looking like getting close to her. Olivia then played off with the other group winner for a final 1st or 2nd placing. Taking the first game 11-8 things were looking good, then seasoned player Hannah came back to take the next two games and the fourth game was a long 12-10 battle with Olivia having to be content (for now) with Runner Up place.
