Squash making pro play
LOCAL SQUASH is about to make its professional debut.
For the first time in the history of the sport, Barbados will host a tournament sanctioned by the Professional Squash Association (PSA) when the 2016 BTMI Barbados Open serves off on Wednesday at the Barbados Squash Cup, Marine Gardens.
The tournament, which will be managed by the Barbados Squash Association and its organising committee, has attracted professional players from 11 countries, including Malaysia, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States, among others.
“This is a triumphant moment for squash in Barbados,” said Monty Cumberbatch, president of the Barbados Squash Association.
“Barbados is just one of two countries in the Caribbean at the moment, the other being the British Virgin Islands, to host a professional tournament.” (PR)
