Tom Elton Barratt Junior Squash Championships 2018

The 2018 Tom Elton Barratt Junior Squash Championships (this year an England Squash 1 day Bronze Sanctioned event) took place on 21st October at Bishop’s Stortford Squash & Racketball Club, Hertfordshire with a donation from all entry fees received being given to CRY. This year we raised £147.

The tournament has been held each year since 1984 in memory of Tom who died from a heart attack caused by an undetected heart defect.

Around 50 enthusiastic squash players (boys and girls aged 11 to 18 years) took part in the event, coming from many surrounding counties. During the busy day, around 70 matches were played. Luke Scott-Stevens (BU15’s) and Alex Banhidai (BU13’s) from Bishop’s Stortford Squash Club joined in, with Alex Banhidai winning his own age group category.

Congratulations must go to all winners: GU13 Amelie Brooke, GU15 Renitha Srindran, GU17 Ella Hall, BU11 Reuben Thain, BU13 Alex Banhidai, BU15 Callum Egan, BU17 Joel Braddock, BU19 Harry Kitchens. Presentation of trophies were made by the Club Chairman Alastair Ambrose.
