Alberta Jesters Junior Open and Upcoming Junior Tournaments


What a fantastic Junior Squash event last weekend with 182 juniors flying in from all over Canada!! Our RGC Juniors played out of their skins and came away with some very creditable performances. RGC Member Junior players were as follows: Arran Green, Ben Baltzan, Evan Watson, Eva Ghai, Gabby Morin, Francisco Chau, Taylor Garth, Molli Hay, and Hanna Hay.

The next big junior event is the one in Victoria. This event regularly has around 225 kids attending and it's called the Pacific North Western (PNW) Jesters in Victoria, Vancouver Island, BC. It's an amazing event where a lot of our juniors cut their teeth on tournament squash with events for Novice players as well as already established players. We normally take upwards of 10 players, so we hope you'll jump in and take the plunge on this fantastic event—whilst also taking time to see the wonderful sights Victoria has to offer.  
Sign up deadline is February 2, 2018, but please get signed up early as they do have a maximum number they can accept and it gets full very quickly!!
 
Dates are as follows:

  • PNW Jesters - February 15-18, 2018

 
Website to sign up is as follows:

The best hotel to book with is the Hotel Grand Pacific (awesome hotel at a tournament discounted rate of only $109.00 per night). Again, this hotel gets booked up super quickly (they're already over 50% booked out for this event), so as soon as you have entered the event (and booked the hotel) please let me know and I'll add you/your Junior to the list of RGC players attending.
 
Any questions about this or any other junior events please feel free to ask Pete Goodings or Adrian De Vries!
