Fakenham Squash Club hosted the latest Norfolk Junior Squash Grand Prix on Sunday 20th May, where the host Club were well represented with 12 out of the 27 players competing. In Group 1 they filled 3 of the top 4 places, and also had newcomer Evan Lagrange competing for the lower positions. The improving Alex Hagag beat top seed Liam Bond 3-1 to win the group to give the home Club their first group win of the day.
Closest match in the group was Jasmine Thirst’s gutsy 3-2 win over Harry Cox, recovering from 0-2 down to enable her to finish a very good fifth.
The first Norfolk Junior Squash Grand Prix of 2018 took place at Harleston on Sunday 22nd April and contained players from all round the county, including an impressive 8 players playing their first ever Grand Prix event.
On Sunday 12th February, four competitive groups took to the Rossis squash courts in North Walsham to compete in the first junior squash Grand Prix of 2017.
Throughout the morning, Robert Thirst and Liam Bond dominated group 1, winning all their matches 2-0. When competing against one another, Liam took game one 11/8, however Robert’s age and experience allowed him to claw back the next two games giving him this month’s Grand Prix title.
Last weekend saw 26 Norfolk junior players take to the courts at Harleston Leisure Centre to compete in the November Junior Grand Prix. Liam Bond took victory in group 1, only dropping one game all day, to Alex Hagag. Alex finished with a final placing of third, due to a tough and tiring match against Jack Pritchard which he lost 2-0. Fantastic effort from all group one players.
