Approximately 120 players will be playing in this tournament therefore all Squash courts will be in use, including the Doubles court from:
NO COURT USE BETWEEN: 2pm Friday until Sunday 4pm.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this will cause however please do feel free to come to the club and join in the amazingness of the next generation of members / Squash players! It really is a fun packed weekend.

Important information about our Junior Gold Event
Weekend of November 14th, 15th & 16th
As many of you are aware, Windsor Squash & Fitness Club has been awarded a Junior Gold event from Squash Ontario this season. This is a great honour, and is 1 of only 2 such events that will be held outside of the GTA this season. The Gold events are the premiere Junior events in the province and will attract top level players who are competing for provincial and national rankings.
Our event is scheduled for the weekend of November 14th, 15th and 16th. In our inaugural run, we are expecting approximately 70 players from across the province that will be competing in age categories ranging from under 11 year to under 19. Many of our own players will be competing and this will be a great opportunity for our members to see some of our Juniors compete against the best players in the province.
We see this event as an opportunity to promote our Junior program, our Club and our City. As a result of some generous support from our members, the competitors on this weekend will be treated to many amenities beyond what is normal for these events. All meals throughout the weekend will be provided for tournament players, a number of free spots have been provided for the Detroit Racquet UP program and in some cases accommodations donated in order to defray the cost of travel for some out of town players. The support has been overwhelming and we are extremely grateful.
Of course with a field this large, as well as parents and other spectators, there will be some disruptions to our normal business on this weekend. We have booked off all courts (including the doubles court) from 3:00PM to Close on Friday, 9:15AM to Close on Saturday and 9:15AM to 4:00 PM on Sunday. As entries are finalized this week, we will gradually be releasing available courts for members to book. We appreciate your patience in this and suggest that you check back throughout the week to see what becomes available.
Please feel free to stop by over the weekend. We guarantee that you will be impressed by the level of play, the determination and the sportsmanship from the competitors.
Another successful tournament wrapped up around 4pm on Sunday. I have received numerous emails from out of town players who were so complimentary about our club, members and staff.
I want to pay special homage to our sponsors. We managed to get 4 cash sponsors this time around and a a result the beer lasted until 3.30pm on Sunday! The cash sponsors were Peter Wares, Wayne Carroll and a further 2 members who wish to remain anonymous. On behalf of everyone I would like to thank them for their generosity and helping make all competitors have such an amazing time.
Special thanks to Anis Khan who paid for the pizza on Friday evening and also bought the junior prizes as well as a $20 gift certificate for all junior entrants. Anis is a great supporter of our tournaments and juniors.
Mark Dalla Valle donated the breakfast items once again and I know how much the players appreciate the fantastic spread we put on every morning, especially the hung over ones!
Dave Porter and Pernod Ricard supported by donating a number of great prizes for the winners prize table.
Finally Steve Demarco who was once again responsible for the souvenir warm up top. The feedback on these was great!
We always rely on members support for these events and this time around people really stepped up to help.
On court the entertainment and quality of squash was fantastic in all divisions. The woman’s draw was especially competitive. I will be posting a list of winners on the blog this week.
