Digicel, in partnership with the Guyana Squash Association (GSA) launched the annual Senior National Championship, during a simple ceremony which was conducted, at the Company’s Head Office in Kingston.
The championship is set to serve off on June 29 and run until July 3 at the Georgetown Club Squash facility and is expected to attract the country’s top players according to what was disclosed at the Launch yesterday.
President of the GSA, David Fernandes, speaking at the occasion said several overseas-based players are set to compete in the Men’s category, which is expected to be the main attraction of the event.
Among the top overseas-based players set to take the courts are former national champion Kristian Jeffrey and Alexander Arjoon.
The tournament will also feature a strong Women’s category with the likes of Ashley Khalil and the Wiltshire sisters, as well as the junior players preparing to compete in the Caribbean Junior Championship slated for later this year.
The categories to be contested are Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Novice, Veteran Men’s 35-49 years, Veteran Men’s Over-50 and Veteran Women’s.
Meanwhile, Digicel came on board the tournament in 2014, and according to Communications Manager, Vidya Bijlall- Sanichara, the partnership has been a rewarding one for both parties.
She said the company will once again inject a substantial amount into the tournament, as part of its willingness to support events that promote sport and youth development.
The Digicel Senior Championship is the flagship event on the GSA’s annual calendar of events.
