The Cayman Islands National Squash association recently appointed former world ranked No. 7 Mark Chaloner as the national coach.
Chaloner is a former England captain and a winner of a World Team Championships and Commonwealth Games gold and bronze medals. He is now poised to help Cayman to continue its excellent squash success.
Juniors like Julian Jervis will benefit from Chaloner’s input and he will also be working with novice pro Cameron Stafford, who is shooting up the world rankings.
Chaloner’s first big task is to organise this year’s Guy Harvey and Cayman Contractor Store National Junior squash Championships, which runs next week from Monday through Thursday. Registration closes Saturday.
Chaloner said: “This is a great opportunity for any child who may or may not be a member of South Sound Squash Club to enter and take part in Cayman’s most prestigious junior event of the year.
“We have age categories ranging from Under-9 up to U-19 for both girls and boys which covers all the juniors. We want to make it as easy as possible to come and play.
“Any sport is the same, if the junior scene is a healthy one there is a very good chance it will thrive for years to come.
“We are so grateful that Guy Harvey and Mark Hennings from Cayman Contractor Store have made it possible for this year’s event to go ahead.
“It gives every child the chance to compete in their age category and will give me a great insight into who deserves to be selected for the Caribbean Team Championships in Trinidad in July.”
