County Junior Championships

The Herefordshire County Junior Championships for 2016 were held at Hereford Squash, Tennis and Racketball Centre. There is now a thriving junior section at Hereford Squash, Tennis and Racketball Centre and it is hoped that a further Junior Championship will be held in the near future.

Where to play

Herefordshire is a largely rural county with population centres in the city of Hereford and market towns of Leominster, Ledbury and Ross. Squash facilities in the county are limited to these towns.

The largest club in the county is Herefordshire Squash, Tennis and Racketball Centre in Hereford. Other venues are at the Halo Leisure Centres in Hereford and Ledbury, and on the border with Powys at Presteigne.
