Day 2 of The Munster Junior Invitational Cancelled due to Snow

Today was an eventful day in Thurles Squash Club, where day 2 of the Munster Invitational had to be regrettably abandoned due to worsening weather conditions.  Many were disappointed, but the Juniors involved didn’t let it dampen their spirits for long.  Before heading for home many a snowball was thrown and snowmen were built.

Thankfully everybody got home safe and sound, and we look forward to the next Junior gathering.

Game 2 Ann Marie fought hard but Donnacha beat her 15/13. And game 3 went to the Cashel man 15/7…                                                                                         Claire (the entertaining student from Castletownbear) and Ann took to another court. Ann proved too strong in all 3 games 15/8 15/10 15/8… enjoyable game to watch.                                                                                                  Stephanie (originally a tennis player but has been converted) played Phil in a great match. Phil took the lead in all games 15/13 15/8 15/8.                                  Karen from Paris studying science in UCC and Bindy (Thurles Auzzie) up next . Some classy shots played but the Auzzie was too strong . 15/11 15/6 15/4         And finally Nicholas all the way from France played Suzie.. From the off he was the stronger player, playing as a child but had given up and not played in 7 years . Not that you would think that seeing him play. Game 1 14/10. Game 2 Nicholas was well on the way but Suzie played hard and fought back up taking it to 14/14 but the French guy finished it with a couple of class  boasts. Game 3 was 15/7.
