Congratulations to the Leinster boys u13 and u15 teams who both bought the Interpros trophies from Waterford back to Leinster at the weekend. A great weekend of squash was had by all.

Winner Munster Leinster Munster Leinster Ulster Munster
Runner Up Leinster Connacht Ulster Munster Leinster Ulster

This was the first time there were u11’s competing at the competition and going by the feedback, it won’t be the last. They were unlucky to lose to Munster 14/12 in the final game of the final match of the tie, and the atmosphere was electric!
