Thurles – World Squash Day
Harry Potter Themed Junior Squash Blitz – World Squash Day 2016
This was a team event with four teams of four players, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin! The No. 1s played all the other No. 1s, the No. 2 played all the other No. 2s etc. This ensured all 16
entrants got three matches over the course of the afternoon against people of similar standard. Matches were against the clock for 10 minutes each with a 2 minute warm-up before each match. We also applied a cap of 20 points per player per match which ensured no one walked away with a match and made the final result much more exciting! Matches were all scheduled out and the tournament ran very smoothly – completed in under 2 & 1/2 hours. This was a great achievement for a club with only two courts!
Special thanks to: Ray Ryan, Club Children’s Officer, without whose invaluable assistance the tournament wouldn’t have happened.
