The Bermuda National Junior Squash Team are heading to Cayman to compete in the Caribbean Junior Squash Championships.
The squad of twelve players aged 11-18 yrs will take part first in an individual age categories competition followed by a team event. They will take on reigning champions Guyana, face tough opposition from Jamaica, Trinidad and hosts Cayman and will also have to see off challenges from OECS, Barbados and Bahamas.
The team travel with Director of Squash Patrick Foster and new BSRA Touring Pro and current World #184 Micah Franklin. National Champion Franklin was upbeat about the teams chances and commented
"We have a young talented team that have trained really hard over the past few months. I expect all of them to perform well but we are well aware of the standard of our opposition and the size of the task ahead. We have some players earning their first International caps who will definitely be feeling the pressure but we also have some seasoned travelers who know what expected and so we will be calling on them to deliver big performances. I'm excited to support the kids and cheer Bermuda on as always"
