We all hope you enjoy our first little intro and we look forward to growing your interest and our confidence as we blog about our journey as a family both on court and the *View from the balcony.*

Little Squash Dragon

After the long summer break, the new squash season of 2019 hits us in the first weekend of September with a Junior European event, and swiftly carries my little squash family along; willingly I might add, to wherever that takes us. 

In the August before, the squash calendars are downloaded, viewed, compared and scrutinised. Events are categorised as to; ‘what does he have to play….what does he want to play…some events are shelved as being too far, too expensive, too hard, too easy. 

The events that make it on to the family squash calendar are the ones my little Squash dragon wants to do because he will take on challenges beyond himself, but mostly it’s to see his squash brothers and sisters and develop valued friendships and bonds for life.

My ‘job’ is to make this happen, I am that Squash parent. And I brace myself for the emotional roller coaster the junior squash season is going to bring, the View from the balcony is never an easy one; but quite frankly I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
