Each year we ask a number of our youngsters to report back on their SW IRC experience, today we focus on Tom Falkner Ham (SW No 10) from our U17 Boy’s Squad.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing with the South West Squad at the inter regionals this year. This was my 3rd year of playing at the inter regionals competition in Kettering. The atmosphere at the inter regionals is absolutely great!
There are many spectators who come and support the different teams from different regions of England. The inter regionals competition is the tournament I look forward to every year. The standard is very mixed, from beginners, to advanced players who play for the National team.
The accommodation at Kettering is brilliant. We stay one night at the Holiday Inn in Kettering and its great! The rooms are perfect and we get a big buffet for breakfast before the competition. We played on the Sunday and finished on the Monday.
This year we got to the finals of the inter regionals out of 8 teams. Unfortunately we lost against West Midlands so we came second overall. Many thanks for the people who came over and supported the competition and big thanks to Ben and Dave for coaching us.
I have put together a highlights video of the weekend, thought it would be something unique!
