The Granite Club, under the guidance of Jessica DiMauro and her Granite Club team, the home of the Junior Doubles Championships, hosted the 11th annual Junior Doubles Championships on January 11-13, challenging junior players to take on doubles competition. This event was originally a National Championship, but with Ontario players dominating the event, it has now been facilitated as a Provincial Championship for three years.
Huge thanks to the Ontario Squash Doubles League and Harrow Sports who have continually supported this event as Title Sponsors. Thanks as well to additional event sponsors the Cambridge Groups of Clubs and Slaight Music, and all those who donated prizes to make this event special for the players.
Also a big asset of this event, Cathy Tuckwell did an incredible job as Tournament Referee with her team of volunteer referees.
