At the closing ceremony, held on Friday, August 5, Rudi Daniel, Director of the National Squash Centre, said the Summer Camp’s coach believes that many of the children have squash playing ability and with the requisite amount of work, champions can be made from them.

He told the participants that the Squash Association and the National Squash Centre expects to see the majority of them enrolled in the Association’s Saturday morning coaching clinics.

Daniel said, since the National Lotteries Authority handed over the National Squash Centre in March 2005 to the national squash executive, the centre has played host to national tournaments, OECS tournaments and schools programmes. He said the National Squash Centre has also facilitated juniors and seniors in their training for national tournaments as well as tournaments in St.Lucia, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

The programme was sponsored by Basil’s Bar, KFC, Rik’s Pizza, the Youth Empowerment Service Programme and the National Sports Council.
