The First Spring Squash Tournament

The Squash Club held the first Spring Squash Tournament on February 22nd. The Tournament drew more than 30 participants who competed at the “Intermediate” or “Advanced” level. The Club would like to congratulate Duncan McGillivray, the winner of the Intermediate Tournament, and Prashant Rai, the winner of the Advanced Tournament. At the tournament, the board also presented the new Club t-shirt, and all participants got one. After the tournament, Club members celebrated with a happy hour at Havana Central.

The Club would like to thank everyone who came out for the first Spring Tournament. The Tournament was a great success and everyone enjoyed the friendly competition. We hope you will join us for our 2nd Spring Tournament soon!
