Sam Booth (15), County U17 squash finalist decided to challenge himself by entering the National Junior Racketball Championships held recently in Liverpool.
The tournament attracted players from all over the country and Sam has only been playing racketball for one year, inspired by his father who had represented Boston Squash and Racketball Club in several competitions.
On the basis of his county squash ranking Sam was confident that he could cause an upset. Unknown to many, Sam was drawn against a strong pool of seeded players. Close matches demonstrating tactical and technical expertise followed and growing in confidence Sam finished a very creditable third place in his age group. Well done Sam!
