A SQUASH club in Christchurch is celebrating a string of successes after claiming seven junior titles at a recent county-wide event.

Players from Two Riversmeet Leisure Centre enjoyed a fruitful trip to the West Hants Club in Bournemouth for the Dorset Junior County Squad Closed event.

Amy Campbell-Wynter, 12, and brother Luca, 14, both won their respective U19 competitions, earning them the titles of best squash players in the county.

Amy also won the girls' U13 event and Luca claimed the trophy in the boys' U15.

In more honours for the Campbell-Wynter family, younger brother James won the boys' U13 event.

Further wins for the Christchurch club came from Elizabeth Avis, 10, who retained her girls' U11 title, and Charlie White, 8, who won the first ever boys' U9 event.

All of the children live in the local area and have been coached by Charlie Campbell-Wynter.

Amy, who is now ranked fourth in the country in the girl's U13 age group, said: "I'm really pleased with how I played at the tournament and it is great to be seen as the best player in the county.

"I love squash because it is such a fun sport to play and you can play it competitively to try and win or more relaxed where you can just focus on enjoying the game."

The British Junior Championships take place at the end of October in Manchester and a number of Christchurch players will be hoping to build on their recent victories.

Amy's dad, Charlie, runs the Squash at Speed club at Two Riversmeet and said the junior section was going from strength to strength.

"The County Championship shows how we're doing and we got seven out of the 11 trophies on offer.

"It's really exciting for the leisure centre to show we are possibly one of the best in the county."

"I'm really proud. A lot of hard work and travelling has gone in to it to do these bigger tournaments as well."

David Williams, head of Dorset Squash, said the success of the squash club in Christchurch provided a model to be used all around the county.

"As a county we're very encouraged with what goes on here in Christchurch and we'd like to think this could be repeated in other clubs across the county," David said.

"Charlie and Sophie have got got 50 children in their squads now - they've done a wonderful job and they continue to produce the results.
