Squash coach Colin Griggs will be playing squash for 24 hours on Saturday to raise money to send three players to Canada for a training tour.

Mr Griggs, who is 34 and has been playing the sport since he was seven, is starting at 9am at the Hemingfords Pavilion against his junior players and will take on members of the squash club and other clients until 9am on Sunday morning.

The money he raises will help send promising youngsters Tayla Mounter, Nadine El Ressee, both 16, and Emily Fuller, 15, to Canada in August.

He is also raising money to help the club host the National Under-23 Squash Championship on April 11-13.
