There was a large entry for the October One-Day Junior Squash event held at Carlow Lawn Tennis Club last Sunday and it produced some thrilling matches.
Played on a pair's format which meant it actually took two to win the event, the title went to the pairing of Eamon Lalor and Noah Downey who had a combined score of 463.
These two lads played brilliant squash right through out their 5 matches with Noah showing just how much he has improved his game. Eamon is a tough competitor and he came away with five wins. The runner-up place went to David Lalor and Cleo Kennedy on 442 points. David never gives up and has developed a very effective fore hand cross court drive which causes his opponents great difficult.
The next event will be the Ulster Junior Open in Belfast followed by the East of Ireland to will be held at Sutton LTC, Dublin. Squash takes place in Carlow LTC, Oak Pak Road and if you would like to take part please call to the club or contact Dermot O'Brien 0876431386
