Junior Squash

Carlow Lawn Tennis Club hosted an amazing feast of Junior Squash on the 21 & 22 January 2012 with 101 junior entries ranging from age 7 to 18 years of age. The standard of squash at all levels was outstanding and there were many nail biting games and finals to be seen. It was great to see so many new players in the U/9 and U/11 and I hope they enjoyed their first tournament.

I would like to thank Carlow Lawn Tennis Club, James Mc Dermot and his committee for a great weekend. Many thanks to Ger Holohan, Enda Holohan, Bernie Tallon, Claire Doyle and also thanks to Fiona and Sheila who kept the bar open all day Saturday and Sunday with refreshments. Well done girls.

I would also like to thank the CY Gym for letting us use their squash courts for the U/9, U/11 and U/13.

Congratulations and well done to all our Leinster players.
