The countdown for this year’s Tecnifibre Essex Junior Open is on with all roads again leading to the Roman town of Colchester in the north of the county.

Last year’s event attracted a three-figure entry and 2018 promises to increase the field even further. With 10 different age groups available, the Open will showcase the very best young players from not only Essex but from surrounding counties who see the event as one of the best-run in the squash calendar.

Entries can be made on the England Squash website HERE. The action will be held over two days (Feb 24-25) to give players time to recover between matches.
