LMS Squash pupils certainly had one of the best weekends at Ampleforth last week!
What a great bunch of pupils we took! I am so proud of them all and how they all mixed so well together.
The Squash they all played from the top end of the team through to the girls at the bottom end was so pleasing, even the new coach at Ampleforth said what lovely style and technique they all had!
We arrived for lunch, then got straight into the Squash match in the afternoon, playing on the excellent courts Ampleforth have. Each one of the team playing best of five games, we won won the match 12 matches to 2! This is really impressive as this year players of wider variety of standard.
In the evening after a big supper, we went to one of their many Astro turf pitches and played football under the floodlights, that was great fun!
The next day, Pontefract Club were unfortunately unable to host us, but Ampleforth made us so welcome and let us stay to play another three hours of Squash on their courts, before travelling home via Junction 32 for a stop and lunch, arriving back at school at 5pm.
It was a real squash family weekend enjoyed by all!
