Junior Talent on Display at 2022 Canadian Junior Closed Championships

Canada’s best junior players take aim at National Glory when the 2022 Canadian Junior Closed Squash Championships begin May 5-8 at the Cedar Hill Squash Club in Victoria, British Columbia.

This annual event brings together many top junior players from around Canada.  The high-level competition will surely not disappoint as the players have trained countless hours for their moment to shine.  Many former champions have gone on to win Canadian Championships at the senior level, represent Canada at major international events and even compete professionally on the PSA Tour.

The event will feature a Gold draw (which will determine the National Champions) for the Top 16 athletes in the country in Boy’s and Girl’s U13, U15, U17 and U19 and will be hosted by the Cedar Hill Squash Club. In addition, a companion Silver draw for Boy’s and Girl’s U11, U13, U15, U17 and U19 will be held at St. Michaels University School (SMUS).

Top Seeds in the Gold draws include GU19 Iman Shaheen (ON), BU19 Syan Singh (ON), GU17 Maria Min (BC), BU17 Ewan Harris (ON), GU15 Joelle Kim (BC), BU15 Calder Murray (AB), GU13 Veera Dhaliwal (BC), and BU13 Kent Rawlins (ON).

“The City of Victoria and Squash BC are thrilled to host the Canadian Junior Closed Championships and particularly excited to give our young athletes the opportunity to play on the glass court,” said Tournament Chair Benjamin Uliana. “We thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, officials and of course the participants for their support in making this event a huge success”.

Squash Canada would like to thank Platinum Partners for their continued support: AirSprint Private Aviation, AMJ Campbell, Oxford Properties, Richardson Wealth, Slaight Music, Syra Holdings, Dunlop and the Government of Canada for supporting the “Power Court” and its trip to Victoria where our top juniors will earn an excellent athlete development opportunity with feature matches played on the state-of-art all-glass court.
