Confident squash team off to Senior CASA in Cayman Islands
With the aim of making a historic three-peat, Guyana’s senior squash players will head off to the Cayman Islands for the Senior Caribbean Area Squash Association (Senior CASA), from August 20-26.
Guyana made a successful defence of their title last year in Jamaica, with dominant performances of both the Men and Women’s teams.
At a simple ceremony on Thursday afternoon at the Georgetown Club, representatives of a few of the sponsors were present to wish the players well on their journey to claiming a third straight title.
Team Guyana is sponsored by ENet, Ansa McAL Trading, Republic Bank, Cage Guyana Inc., Guyana Olympic Association and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport.

As an organisation, we take immense pride in our corporate social responsibility and we just want to encourage you to continue doing what you do.”
