Squash young gun ex­cels

Pilbara News - - Sport - Louise Alling­ham

Lo­cal Ex­mouth boy, Mitchell Fer­rari, 10, is now the num­ber one squash player in the un­der-11s divi­sion in the State.

Mitchell, along with fel­low Ex­mouth lo­cals Jamie, 12 and Anita Tsan­garis, 14, com­peted in a num­ber of tour­na­ments in Perth.

In the Karakul Kup tour­na­ment Mitchell ex­celled, com­ing first in the un­der-11s divi­sion and run­nerup in the un­der-13s.

The trio were then se­lected to at­tend the An­nual WA Squash Ju­nior Camp in Bridgetown over the Aus­tralia Day week­end.

The three-day camp in­volved ex­ten­sive train­ing from pro­fes­sional play­ers and coaches, fit­ness chal­lenges and team build­ing.

Mitchell said the camp was a great ex­pe­ri­ence. “I learnt so much more about the way I play my squash; the coaches were very pas­sion­ate, had heaps of ex­pe­ri­ence, (and) they taught me to set my­self goals,” he said.

“I loved the camp be­cause it was chal­leng­ing and you were tested on your fit­ness.”
