The British Junior Open squash championship is considered the second most prestigious junior open squash championship in squash history after the World Junior Squash Championships. This year’s championships were held across venues in Birmingham and there was plenty of SA and HCSC interest at the competition.
Diego Pita competed in the BU13 event, getting the last spot in the draw and being the lowest-seeded in the 64 player draw, and finished a very respectable 51st position. Sofia Pita and Ellis Miller competed in the GU19 event, another strong 64 draws, finishing 52nd and 53rd respectively.
Elsewhere, Callum McGurk finished 65th out of 128 in the BU15 tournament and fellow Cambridgeshire teammate Mumin Bilen came 47th.
