Miles Smith are pleased to announce the continuation of our sponsorship for the Essex Junior Squash teams, who we have been supporting since 2016.
The Essex Junior Squash club helps to promote and encourage children to take part in squash in schools and clubs around the county. Many players who joined the Essex Junior Squash teams as children now compete at National and International level. Since 2016, there has been a record number of Essex Junior players ranked in the England Squash Rankings with multiple players reaching the number one spot. The club has recently started running the ‘Miles Smith Junior Squash Grand Prix Series’, which is a key event on the squash calendar.
The Essex squash teams had an incredibly successful year in 2017, with three teams (Girls U13’s, U17’s and Essex boys U15’s) having qualified for the National Finals in January 2018. Another notable match was between the Essex Girls u17’s and the ‘City Boys’ from Lloyds of London Squash Team, on the 23rd October 2017. Having unfortunately lost to Lloyds the previous year, the girls were incredibly motivated to win and succeeded with a final score of 6-4. One member of Miles Smith staff, Matt Cosby, even played in a match against one of the Essex girls – and unfortunately lost!
Most recently, five teams finished as finalists in the England Squash Inter-Counties Finals 2017/18, with three teams walking away with bronze medals, and one winning silver.
Miles Smith are very proud to help support all the players to reach their sporting goals. We wish the best of luck to the Essex Junior Squash teams for their forthcoming matches this year, and moving into 2018 as we continue to support and work with the club in all their endeavours.
