Welcome to the Essex Junior Squash Website
Essex Junior Squash is a non profit, self funding, volunteer and parent led association which aims to support all Essex junior squash players to develop their love and experience of the game and to progress to representing their county at regional and national level. If you can volunteer some time to help with the organisation or are able to provide assistance please let us know.
Please bear in mind that due to COVID-19 and the restrictions being placed upon squash and how it’s currently played, lots of our initiatives will not be able to run currently.
We will be working with England Squash to understand what we are able to do and provide information as soon as we’re able, ensuring a safe return to competition as soon as possible.
