Amin with Squash Ontario President Mark Sachvie

Many of you would recognize Amin Khan as the young two-handed backhander that spends every spare minute by the Squash Courts looking for a game.  We’re very proud to share that this past weekend he won a Junior Gold event in the U11 division at the White Oaks resort and Spa in St. Catherines.

This win marks Amin’s first Gold victory and possibly the first Gold tournament win by a Windsor Squash & Fitness Club Junior in over 10 years!  In the finals, Amin showed his resilience and competitive nature as he sent 3 of the 4 games into extra points.  The first game proved to be a marathon as Amin squeaked out a win against his opponent 26-24.  In the 4th, he persevered after a 5 point deficit to win 16-14, claiming the match and the tournament title.

Junior Gold events are reserved for the top players in the province and this was the first of five that will be held this season.  We would like to wish Amin and all of our Juniors the best of luck as they compete this season!
