Woodpecker Products’ Junior Squash serves off this evening
The Woodpecker Products Junior National Squash Championship will serve off this evening (Monday, May 13) at 18:00h at the Georgetown Club Courts, Camp Street.
“This is an important tournament in the Junior Squash calendar and a benchmark for Junior Caribbean Squash Association squad selection; determining the National title winners,” the Guyana Squash Association said in a statement.
A total of 24 players will compete in various age categories, namely Boys and Girls Under-19, Under-17, Under-15, Under-13 and Under-11.
“There is a very young group of players this year, but there is certainly no lack of talent amongst them. Reigning Under-19, Under-17 and Under-15 champion Shomari Wiltshire will defend his Under-17 and Under-19 title for the boys, while Michael Alphonso, Nicholas Verwey and Demetrius DeAbreu will battle each other and others in the Under-15 category. Mohryan Baksh will be looking to earn the Under-13 title this year,” the Association stated.
“For the Girls, Abosaide Cadogan will be defending the Under-19 and Under-17 titles, while Kirsten Gomes will set her sights on the Under-15 category as well as contending in the higher categories. With few competitors in the girls group, the younger categories will have the majority of the games over the coming week.”
Play will continue each weekday from 18:00h and the final matches will begin on Saturday (May 18) from 11:00h.
