The squash competition at the 35th National Games was complete dominated by the Tamil Nadu contingent as all the finalists in both the men’s and women’s competition belonged to the state. First up was women’s singles in which the seasoned Joshana Chinappa did not have much trouble in sailing past Lakshya Ragavendran 11-5 11-8 11-4 to nab the gold medal.

The bronze medals went to losing semifinalists — Urwashi Joshi of Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh’s Sachika Ingale.

In the men’s title clash, Ghosal rallied to beat Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu after conceding the initial advantage. He won the match 4-11 11-4 11-8 11-6 to expectedly walk away with the top honours, while bronze-medallists were Delhi’s Gaurav Nandrajog and Tamil Nadu’s Ravi Dixit.
