Squash shines again at Active Essex School Games
The Active Essex School Games re-introduced squash into their programme this year and after last week’s hugely successful finals at The Colchester Garrison, it is safe to say the decision was bang on, .
On Friday 13th February nine primary school teams trooped over to the Corporal Budd VC squash courts at the Garrison to do battle. Most of the schools were from the North of Essex, mainly due to the vast amount of school squash programmes in the area. Trinity St Mary’s travelled the longest distance, making the trip from South Woodham Ferrers. The competition would help us find out who are the best primary school squash teams in Essex.
The Year 5 category had three eager teams competing for the title. Ardleigh St Mary’s, Tiptree Heath and Trinity St Mary’s entered their teams, two boys and two girls per team. The matches were competitive andit was clear some of the players were experienced squash players.
