More than 40 players from Guernsey and the UK competed in the Fund Corporation Guernsey Squash Senior Open 2013 last weekend.
The event, sponsored by Fund Corporation in association with Trust Corporation, took place at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre from Saturday 23 through to Sunday 24 February.
Individuals had the chance to compete in either the Men’s A, B or C events or the Ladies’ A event.
UK player, Scott Legg, took the Men’s A title beating his team mate James Kearney from Essex. Legg made his way to the final after a close game against Guernsey player, Henry Birch.
The men’s B title was taken by 17 year old Charles Stenner who beat Nick Maunder, winning an impressive 11/3, 11/6, 11/4 and another Guernsey junior, Leo Fossey, won the Men’s C event beating Graham Fisher 3-0.
In the Ladies’ final, Amy Stenner had a great win against her Island Games team- mate Katherine Jensen by getting off to a flying start and taking the first game 11/3. Even though the next two games were very tight, the game went Stenner’s way for her 3 nil victory and first Guernsey Open title.
Paul Everitt, managing director of Fund Corporation, said: “The Guernsey Open never fails to be an exciting tournament and is a great opportunity for the island to showcase some of its most talented players. Seeing some of Fund Corporation and Trust Corporation’s staff compete in the tournament was also added entertainment.”
Tournament director, Martin Watts, said: “Spectators witnessed some great matches throughout the weekend with many players excelling in their game. It’s also really good experience for our local players to have the opportunity to play against some UK talent. We are sincerely grateful to Fund Corporation and Trust Corporation for their continued support.”
