Masters squash is back! With vastly improved participation, a strong level of play and enthusiasm and energy to spare, 90 athletes between 30 and 75 took to the courts at Executive Squash and Fitness October 28th - 30th.
Under the direction of the Squash Ontario Masters Committee, two new events proved very successful - a B/C draw as well as a team component that brought players new and old to the event.
Upsets reigned supreme as only 4 of 11 #1 seeds prevailed in their age categories (Joanna Phang W30+, David Sly M45+, Julie Hisey W45+ and Carlos Barbosa M65+) and were joined by underdogs and several first time provincial masters champions (Francisco Mendez M30+, Dave Morrish M50+, Wayne Pye M55+, Guy Gordon M60+, Christine Kogon W58+, Robert De Valk M65+, and Alison Waddington W45+ B/C).
A huge thanks goes to tournament chair Rob Brooks and the Executive Squash and Fitness Team, title sponsor Karakal and Jeff Watts and for all of our participants for supporting the event.
