Scottish Junior Open

Scottish open squash Indian contingent 2006Every year promising junior squash players all over the world especially from India, Egypt, Malaysia, Pakistan make their way to UK for the British and Scottish Junior Squash Open.  A few years ago, ICL Academy trainees Saurav Ghosal and Joshna Chinappa won the British Open Boys and Girls title, which signaled our emergence as a squash power on the junior circuit. While they have moved into the senior ranks and are currently climbing up the senior ladder, their mantle has been passed on to a number of promising juniors.

Last year at the Scottish Open, Anaka Alankamony won the girls under 13 title while Sachika Balvani (under 13), Surbhi Misra (under 17) and Abhishek Pradhan (under 13) finished as runners up. Click here for this years results Read more of this post
