The Security Centre Squash League kicked off with a packed house at South Sound Squash Club last Thursday.

It is all being organized by Mark Chaloner, the former world class player and new national coach, who is introducing youngsters to league action.

The first matches saw some raw talent in the ‘D’ level match ups and there were a couple of good battles.

One in particular was one of Cayman’s junior girls representing AON Giant Killers, Alexandra Artuch, who fought well only to succumb by two points in the fifth game to Walkers Wonders Nikhil Jha.

It was great experience for Artuch player to be playing in a competitive league situation.

There were twp outstanding ‘A’ level matches, which both went the distance.

Marlene West (Aon Giant Killers) was 2-0 down against Claire Kluyver (Walkers Wonders) when she suddenly found her stride and turned the tables, ending up the 3-2 victor.

The DMS ‘A’ player, Neil Stone-wigg gained a 2-1 lead against Shaun Geils of KPMG 1, but Geils’ youth saw him through the next two games to clinch the deal.

The biggest whitewash of the night was dealt by TSCL (The Security Centre Limited) Sheriffs, who cruelly hammered NCB Group, only dropping a single game in the whole match.

Matthew Wight, NCB Groups ‘A’ quipped: “The Security Centre are league sponsors and we thought we had better take it easy on them in their first match, but they were ruthless. We have to review our strategy from now on.”

Following the four singles matches there was one doubles match, which, on a court designed for only two people is a little crowded.

This proved to be a great experience for a number of players who had not previously played doubles before and this excited them for next time along with providing the crowd with superb entertainment.

Raffle prizes for the kick-off were donated by The Security Centre Limited, raising $145.

Proceeds from all raffle ticket sales will be pooled and presented to the league winner’s charity of choice at the end of the season.

Marlene West (Aon Giant Killers) was 2-0 down against Claire Kluyver (Walkers Wonders) when she suddenly found her stride and turned the tables ending up the 3-2 victor.
