A team of our juniors headed to Zagreb, Croatia over the weekend to play in the Croatian Junior Open led by coach Philip McWilliams. Competing in the Girls U13 and U15 events, in addition to the Boys U13, U15 and U17 draws, the juniors selected were a credit to Scottish Squash and Racketball.

Lucy Murchie and Maddie Orr took home the top prize in their age groups, winning in the Girls U13 and U15 competitions respectively.

In the Boys draw, Finlay Martin (U13) and Jack Orr (U17) claimed second placed finishes and James Dougan (U17) finished in 3rd place.

A massive well done to all who took part and flew the flag for Scotland! Below is a summary of each day’s match results.
