Nine current Mersea School members ranging from year 3 to year 6 took part in the fourth Essex Junior Squash Grand Prix series number 4 held at Lexden rackets club at Chitts Hill in Colchester.

Lucy (year 6) taking a good runner up spot in the combined Girls year 6 & 8 and under category group A, Lucy winning all but one of her matches. 

Grace (year 3) continued a dominant run in competitions by playing up an age group in the  girls under 6 group B category and winning all but one of her matches she and two others also finished on 7 games won a piece one of these being our own Emma (year 6). This called for a points count back seeing the win going to someone that Grace had beaten, Grace taking 2nd and 3rd place to Emma. Phoebe came 4th in the same group pushing Emma to all five games and one of them running to 17-15.

Lucas and Stefan (year 3) both took on the boys year 4 and under category taking 5th and 4th respectively and having some tough battles with some very experiences campaigners in the grand prix series, all valuable learning for the future.

Chase (year 5) took on group B year 6 and under category and after winning one match took home 4th place, after a week of not being very well was a good result.

Evan and Oscar (year 5) took on year 6 and under C group, Evan winning two of his four matches, a great start and taking 4th place. Oscar showing grit and determination and kept fighting for every point (a classic Mersea trait) taking 5th spot.

For those eagle eyed among you will see the new banners behind the prize winners have none other than Mersea's Grace emblazoned on them for years to come, and those with really good eyesight may spot some other past and present Mersea players.
