BU13 Intercounties 2016 – Weekend 2

25th Nov 2016 (agillespie)
englandsquashAfter a topping their group after the first weekend of the InterCounties competition, the Leinster BU13 team went into the second weekend with high hopes of qualifying for the finals. The competition was held in the National Squash Centre in Manchester and the boys were lucky enough to play all their games on the all-glass show court.

The good news is that the boys did themselves proud yet again and topped their second-round group, beating North Wales, Lancashire and Northumbria in the process. Opposition was tough, with a number of top English and Wales National players representing their counties, but the Leinster boys were a good match for them and won all three matches.

Ronny knows a thing or two about coaching – he’s currently the head coach of Holland, Belgium and Paderborner, and also coaches professionals such as Simon Rosner and the Gilis sisters – Tinne and Nele.

He certainly put the guys through their paces – their final assessment of the weekend saw them tasked with coaching Tinne on the glass court.

We’ve also added more information regarding how the all points have been won so it should hopefully give a lot more visibility on everything ranking-related.
