The event is going from strength to strength and we hope by moving the date to before the British Junior Open will encourage even more of the world’s top juniors to compete. Scotland is on the rise in terms of junior squash and the opportunity for our young players to test themselves against the worlds best will provide a great indicator of just how far they have come.”
