Here are a few dates for your diary to help plan the squash year ahead. England Squash has yet to release their own calendar of events which is stopping us naming our county training days, but hopefully they will pull their fingers out soon and we can fill in the gaps.
Firstly, the Essex Junior Closed will be held at the Colchester Garrison on September 24th and 25th. Entry forms will be available soon. Watch this space.
And the first round of the Junior Inter-County events is October 15th and 16th and round two November 19th and 20th. The Finals being staged on January 14th and 15th.
