Jesters of Ontario Continue their Support of Squash Ontario for 2016-17

Jesters of Ontario continue to be the single largest supporter of squash in our province as the organization has once again committed significant resources for the 2016-17 season to Squash Ontario. This year you will see the Jesters supporting several important programs including starting and growing the OUAA Jesters University League. This league gives the opportunity for top junior players to stay in Canada to compete at an ever increasingly high level and continues to grow annually, now including 14 men's teams and 10 women's teams. In addition, the Jesters continue to support the Black Knight Gold junior tournament series and the Harrow Silver and Grand Prix junior series by enhancing tournament value, in particular funding prizes like Harrow squash racquets for our silver champions and Black Knight accessories for gold winners.

This season, we are pleased to announce a new program called the Ontario Jesters Traveling Tour Team whose goal is to increase regional development by partnering with the Ottawa Junior Prix Series and the Southwestern Ontario Gary Waite tour to subsidize travel opportunities for aspiring junior players ready to make their first foray from regional tournament play into provincial Squash Ontario play. In addition, the Jesters have been long time supporters of doubles development, preparatory school programming and have generally been stewards of our great game for almost 100 years.
