We thank all participants in this past weekend's 2017 Slaight Music/Ridley Windows and Doors Ontario Doubles Championships. The energy buzzing around Championship Sunday at the Cricket embodied that friendly competition and great camaraderie experienced all weekend.
Special thanks to Slaight Music and Ridley Windows and Doors who always step up and support these events, as well as all sponsors who made this an extra special experience for players and spectators. Pat Richardson and Deb O'Neill, the dynamic duo who despite being able to do this in their sleep, never stop trying to make things better and continue to raise an already high bar. Their large and dedicated volunteer base makes things so easy. Robin Clarke and the Cricket Club Team - likely the best doubles venue in the world - makes for a perfect tournament base in our own backyard. Thank you to Mayfair Parkway and the Toronto Racquet Club for providing secondary venues unconditionally. Thank you to Lolly Gillen who gives everything she has for doubles squash over and over again with recruiting, photography, refereeing and being a true leader of our sport. Finally, thanks to all of the participants, including the support of many of the top professionals in the world, making our Provincial Championship the envy of the North American doubles community.
Please see below for final results as well as link to Rob Dinerman's well written and much appreciated Daily Squash Report as well photos from Championships Sunday. Good luck for the rest of this year and see you on the courts in 2018!
