Kids turn for glory

There’s more ompetitive squash this weekend but not as high profile as the Cayman Open.

The Ricoh National Junior Squash Championships started yesterday.

Over 60 junior squash players are taking part in the most prestigious junior tournament on island at South Sound Squash Club.

There are four divisions for players to take part in; Elite Boys, Elite Girls, Intermediate Boys and Girls and the Beginners.

Dean Watson, the youth development coach, said: ‘Ricoh in partnership with Kirk Office Equipment have kindly continued their support for this event and we are very appreciative of their help.

‘Matches today start from 10m until 3pm on Saturday. Following the Cayman Open we have had extensive interest in the event and hope to make this a success. The finals will begin on Saturday from 2pm.’

Watson won the men’s title at the Cayman Open and hopes to see youngsters coming through trying to emulate him.
