Scarborough’s new Squash Academy is holding it’s first ever junior competition.
Scarborough Squash Academy is holding it’s first ever Junior competition today with players aged 8 to 15 descending upon the club from all over the region.
The Academy runs in new facilities in the town as Head Coach – Lewin Marsden – explains.
The Academy on Scalby Road is part of the Rugby club, it launched just before the lockdowns with new facilities including four courts and an extensive gym.
Head Coach Lewin Marsden says today’s event is a big deal.
Ten players from the Academy’s new junior program will be taking part in today’s event and 50 players so far have entered the competition. Play will start at 10:30 and will be running the whole day.
“It is a friendly competition for players at entry to intermediate level, but is very significant for our club and will help put Scarborough Squash Academy on the map.
The competition has been running throughout the current season at various clubs and Scarborough Squash Academy has been added to the list of venues hosting the tournament.
We see this as a great opportunity to showcase our club which is new and very young, but offers some of the best facilities in the region, having four beautiful courts, and multiple gym facilities. We can offer top level training and coaching which is quite unique and are looking to encourage greater participation and interest in the sport.
The courts were built by the McCabe family who are also lending maximum support to this event.
We are expecting a large turnout with parents and representatives from Yorkshire Squash and local clubs attending.”
