In preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games the SRFI organised a
doubles camp for selected players at the Indian Squash Academy in
Chennai from 28 April – 1 May 2014.

This is the second such camp to be
organised. The first was held at the same venue on 18-23 Dec 2013.

This is the first time that the doubles event at the Commonwealth
Games will be played with a 13 inch tin. ISA had made provisions for
such a tin.

We organised matches for the following probable pairs:
Women’s Doubles – Dipika Pallikal and Joshana Chinappa
Men’s Doubles – Saurav Ghosal and Harinder Pal Sandhu
Mixed Doubles – Dipika Pallikal/Saurav Ghosal and Joshana
Chinappa/Harinder Pal Sandhu

Sessions were held at the following times:

28 April 11am & 530pm
29 April 1030am & 530pm
30 April 1230pm-130pm & 630pm
1 May 1230pm-130pm

All practice matches were video taped and with the assistance of
‘Sports Mechanics’ we will do match analysis and keep the players
The players were also briefed on the proposed schedule and format of the
Commonwealth Games which will be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 23
July – 3 Aug 2014.

The entire camp was supervised by Consultant Coach Maj(R) S.Maniam and
assisted by National Coach Cyrus Poncha. The next camp is scheduled to be held in Chennai from 27 May – 1 June 2014.
The SRFI looks forward to a good showing at the games.
