World Squash Day at South Sound Squash Club

 

 

World Squash Day’s overall goal was to make headlines around the world to Back The Bid for Squash to be included in the 2020 Olympics. To do that they needed to have thousands of players joining in on the day. Not only do they hope it was the biggest squash match in history, but they want to make it the biggest-ever sports match in history.

The South Sound Squash Club was a registered club with WSD and over 60 players came out to the club and participated, including 40 children under the age of 13!! A small island, but big hearts as over 100 games of 20 points were played and will contribute to what every squash enthusiast hopes is a monumental day in the game of squash.

U15 Caribbean squash title

 

Posted on Tue, 08/07/2012 – 11:50 in Sports

(CNS): Julian Jervis has claimed the title of U-15 Caribbean Junior Squash Champion at the recent Caribbean Area Squash Association (CASA) Championships in Kingston, Jamaica. Jervis was competing alongside a group of local squash players who their coaches say had a very successful tournament. Alongside Jervis’s trophy, Daniel Murphy lost only one match, and earned a 5th place in the U-17 competition. Eilidh Bridgeman and Kristina Myren earned 3rd and 4th place respectively in the girls U-19 competition.

Head coach, Glenn Stark, and team manager, his wife Amanda Stark, said they were both extremely proud of the progress. “We are very happy with the results, as many of the team members are well below the U-19 cut off point. It’s a great achievement to do so well with such a youthful group, and we believe that we will see much more from them in the future,” Stark said.

Overall the team finished 6th in the boys’ tournament and 7th in the girls’. 10 countries competed in total, with the OECS consisting of four individual countries represented as one.
