YOUNG squash players battled it out on court at a national tournament in Bournemouth.
 
40 players took part in the two-day Codestone Bournemouth Junior Squash Open at the West Hants Club.
 
Organiser Martin Wells said: “There were some well fought battles on court and youngsters showed a very competitive but professional attitude – some matches lasted for over an hour.
 
“As well as sponsoring the event, technology company
Codestone donated £500 prize money – having a financial incentive was very motivating for the young people taking part. The players have worked incredibly hard to reach this level; it’s great to reward that.”
 
In the Under 19s finals Steve Wykes, 18, from Wiltshire beat Hampshire’s Robert Downer, 16, to claim the boys’ trophy. In the girls’ event Somerset’s Tessa Healey, 19, beat Francesca Ritchie from Surrey.
 
Jack Fowler, 14, from Hertfordshire was triumphant in the Under 15 boys’ final – beating Josh Ryan, 13, from Herfordshire. Natalie Machin, 13, from Buckinghamshire beat Laura Mullarkey, 13, from Surrey in the Under 15 Girls final.
 
Dorset players had some success in the tournament on May 24 and 25: Kate Alcock played a strong match and  reached the semi final of the under 15s,  Stuart Parfett gave a valiant effort in the quarter final of the Under 19s, missing out to the eventual tournament winner.
 
Martin added: “Our thanks go to Codestone for their valued support and to Tracy Parker and Dilly Andreous who gave their expertise as markers.”
 
Morad Molavi of Codestone, said: “It was fantastic to see so many young people giving up their weekend for something so positive. We hear so much negative news about teenagers but so many are working hard and achieving and we wanted to support that."
