Junior Nationals individual and interstate, Kolkata 2006

Calcutta Rackets ClubCalcutta Racket Club, one of the oldest squash clubs in the world, will host the Indian Junior National and Interstate Squash Championship from 25 October to 1 November. We have received entries from 350 participants across the country, competing in various age groups from under 11 to under 19. The individual tournament will be till October 28, and the interstate team championship will commence from Oct 29 till November 1.

This is a tournament I look forward to, as it is interesting to see the depth and quality of our junior squash. We always have a few upsets and each year a few dark horses put in a wonderful performance and get on the national stage. Over the next few month the juniors will also play a few tournaments locally and some of  then go abroad for the Scottish and British Open. Top seeds:
