Manchester Squash Roundup


English Junior Championships

The English Championships form one of three major events in the calendar. This year’s event was a great success for the Manchester Squash Academy, and our strongest event so far with most doing as expected and few doing better than their expectations.

Highlight of the event was Laurence Cull who finished 5th in the boys U13’s age group getting some big wins, also in that event Finlay finished 1st in the plate so 17th overall. In the Girls U13’s event Saran following injury battled on to finish 10th, Lauren Hall had he strongest event since joining the Academy with a 17th place finish in winning the plate! In the girls U15’s Marialena played well and learned a lot finishing 32nd. In the boys U17’s we had 4 North West players in Oscar who finished a fantastic 10th place with a great performance against Nick Wall during the event, Charlie Major came back from injury and finished a very respectable 12th place, Richard battled after a very hard first round match also playing Nick Wall and finished an eventual 22nd place, and Carlton had a tough event finishing 32nd place.

Overall a fantastic weekend.


The South Manchester Squash Club held a Squashathon this weekend for Sport Relief! The club all worked hard generating 12 solid hours of squash! There was also a great effort towards the fundraising with a grand total over £2000 raised for the great cause!
