Squash Association hoping COVID-19 subsides so juniors can be internationally exposed

first_imgPresident of the Guyana Squash Association (GSA) David Fernandes is hoping that the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic subsides in the coming months so as to expose the country’s top juniors to some much-needed international squash in an effort to further foster their development.  “There are tournaments that are being scheduled but worldwide the situation is getting worse… the senior US Open was recently called off but we have a few tournaments to go to especially the juniors are slated to attend the Canadian and US Open both of which will be held in December,” the country’s top squash official told Stabroek Sport.Conscious of the serious threat that the deadly disease poses and in light of those possible tours in December, Fernandes said that he hopes the situation improves.

It’s really hard because this is something we would have never guessed would happen in our lifetime.” Even if there is a possible window for the juniors to compete internationally later in the year if a vaccine or another medical alternative is developed, Fernandes pointed out that the seniors are pretty much done for the year since a number of senior tournaments have already been shelved. He explained that there are a few South American senior tournaments scheduled for October, however, Guyana’s participation is unlikely because access to training facilities is not possible at this time while the glum economic climate will also impact the association’s decision.last_img read more
