INTERNATIONAL MALTA SQUASH OPEN

The International Malta Squash Open was organised over four days last week, with the finals held on Saturday.

The main senior events were won by Bradley Hindle Deguara and Johanna Rizzo while Robert Sultana claimed the over 45 title.

Michael Fenech and Anthony Attard contested the final of the B event in a close match won by the former in 5 games. Martin Zammit had the better of Liz Said in the C event final.

In the Juniors’ competition, Kimberley Galea and Kijan Sultana were in contention for the Under-17 title. Both players have shown great improvement and have achieved great results recently in international competitions.

In a super final between them, Kimberley Galea won the first two games but Sultana made an excellent comeback to win the next three games and match.

Kijan Sultana also won the U15 age group playing against the promising Luigi Buhagiar in the final. In the U13 event, Nigel Scerri won the competition in a nail-biting final against Lijana Sultana.

All juniors taking part were presented with a medal by the President of Malta Squash who encouraged them to continue practising the sport. Ms Liz Said also thanked Ivan Balzan for the excellent organisation of the tournament.

The next Malta Squash tournament will be held on Sunday, 1st May at the Tal-Qroqq Sports Complex in collaboration with Sport Malta.

Meanwhile there are more than 80 players taking active part in the league which consists of 12 divisions and the number is growing.

In the meantime, Malta Squash has launched a new website www.maltasquash.com making it possible to join Malta Squash or renew Malta Squash membership online.

Malta Squash would like to thank Jean-Paul Navarro for his work on the new website and logo. The new website, together with the Facebook page www.facebook.com/MaltaSquashAssociation is helping Malta Squash attract more players to the sport.
