Junior Development Events

Easter SWNC Junior Development Event On Wednesday 11th April, Squash Wales hosted a junior squash development event at Sport Wales National Centre.

16 juniors attended the day, including juniors from Fairwater, Maesteg, Llantrisant, Newport, Hirwaun, Bridgend and Carmarthen. Some great matches were played throughout the day and lots of fun was had by all. These development events are great for juniors to have the opportunity to play against other juniors of similar ability that they wouldn’t usually get the chance to play, all in a fun, friendly but competitive environment.

Challenge Weekends

The challenge weekends aim to provide internal team competition in order to prepare players for future intercounty and international team events. They provide squad players with the opportunity to compete against each other in a team environment and showcase the talent of the juniors in Wales.

• 12th & 13th May 2018 • Players selected by HPC Greg Tippings

Under 15/17 Challenge Weekend
