This year has seen seven, yes seven players from Hertfordshire representing England and Scotland in the Home Internationals.
In order to be selected to play for your country you have to compete on the Masters Circuit playing in the Nationals in February or the British Open in June plus one or two of the other regional events held every season. The player obtains points for each competition depending on their placing. The top five players are invited to play for their country.
Hertfordshire Squash was well represented in the Home Internationals held in Dublin, Edinburgh Nottingham and Cardiff.
On the first weekend Louisa Dalwood (Nuffield) and Libby Montgomery (Harpenden) travelled to Dublin to play for the England O45, Louisa captaining the team again.
