Spooktacular Success at the Halloween Junior Squash Tournament!

The eerie echoes of excitement reverberated through the Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis and Squash Club (WLTSC) as the Spooktacular Halloween Junior Squash Tournament took place, sponsored by The Platform Café, Wombourne. Over 30 children participated in three categories tailored to their age groups.

The spirited tournament was organised by Head Squash coach, Mike Harris who has been running the successful junior programme at the club. Assisted by the creative flair of Kate Corey, who masterfully adorned the courts with bewitching decorations, the venue was transformed into a Halloween wonderland. From spooky balloons to grinning pumpkins, the atmosphere was thrilling and spooky!

The young participants had lots of fun showcasing their skills on the squash court and engaging in tightly fought matches that parents and spectators enjoyed watching. The courts, bedecked with decorations, provided a perfect backdrop for the competition.

Every child who participated was recognised for their efforts and received a well-deserved certificate. And what’s a Halloween event without treats? Every child also left with a cone of Halloween-themed sweets as a reward for their hard work!

The champions of the day were our category winners. In the Orange Ball category, Jacob Dehar emerged victorious; Brenden Wilbrey triumphed in the Red Dot Ball category, and Amar Sidhu conquered the Single Yellow Dot category, all showcasing impressive squash skills and determination. In addition to their certificate and sweets, the winners also received a pumpkin.

The festivities also included Halloween-themed cakes (provided by the talented bakers at The Platform Café) face painting and tattoos, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event.

Mike Harris commented, “The Halloween Junior Squash Tournament has been an amazing success – a morning filled with laughter, camaraderie, and unforgettable moments. I’m so proud of all the children who competed so well and battled hard in their games. They’ve all come on so well at our junior sessions and it’s been a wonderful celebration of squash, sportsmanship, and the spirit of Halloween. Here’s to many more Spooktacular events in the future!”
