Na­tional Cham­pi­onship fi­nals.

Most re­cently, four Bucks boys trav­elled to Sheffield for the U11 fi­nals, con­tested by the UK’s top 50 play­ers in the age group, at the be­gin­ning of June, and all four won their first round matches, guar­an­tee­ing them places in the fi­nal 32.

No­table achieve­ments in­cluded Arhan Chan­dra, from Che­sham Bois, knock­ing out num­ber three seed Nero Harms in a thrilling five-set match, and a fan­tas­tic run by Alex Mullis, of Wy­combe Squash & Rack­et­ball Club, to the quar­ter-fi­nals, where he was halted by num­ber two seed Ben Par­lour.

There were also im­pres­sive per­for­mances by MK Squash’s James Ket­tle and Holmer Green Squash & Rack­et­ball Club’s Kon­rad Pompe, who fin­ished 25th and 29th re­spec­tively.
