2nd Annual Detroit City Squash Championships
On October 26th and 27th, Racquet Up hosted the 2nd annual Detroit City Squash Championships at the Northwest Activities Center. Nearly sixty adult and youth players participated in the tournament. The event aims to promote camaraderie and fun competition, while also determining the undisputed Detroit City Squash Champions. After challenging matches, exciting rallies, and stunning comebacks, the Detroit City Squash Champions were crowned.
Avinash Gali won the Men’s A Division, Tom Howe won Men’s B, and Cyrus Chinoy won Men’s C. Max Franklin and Antwan Ramsey triumphed in the Doubles Draw. The junior winners included: Antoinette Ramsey, Deon Ramsey, MaCayla Dowdell, and Justin Hendon.
Thanks to Rosemary O’Connor, Racquet Up Program Manager and tournament director, and Parker Lynch, Racquet Up Squash Coordinator, for organizing and coordinating the tournament. Cyrus Chinoy, Men’s C Winner, gave a great summary of the event: “The racquet community is just one big family, all sharing a common bond of spirited, competitive play on the courts and wonderfully friendly people off the courts. This tournament was no exception.”
Thank you to all the players who participated in the 2018 Detroit City Squash Championship. We hope to see you on the courts again next year!
