Di has previously served on the WAMS committee, as well as 3 AMSA Perth Tournament committees, appearing in numerous “wrinklies revue’s”. She has competed at 3 World Masters Squash Tournaments (successfully) and in 1 World Masters Games representing WA/Australia. She is also a long time financial sponsor of WAMS.
We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this award – Di consistently promotes WA Masters Squash – every new player at Pennants or Clubs get asked “do you play Masters, do you want to play Masters? – you should, it’s great fun!”
She thoroughly deserves this award ‘Services to Masters Squash 2019’. Well done Di
At the recent Squash Australia Awards night (22 June) WA Squash Juniors Greg Chan (currently training at Squash Australia) and Oscar Curtis along with Qld Ethan Eyles were in contention for the Commonwealth Games
Association Award for Junior Male Athlete of the Year.
This was judged upon: results at National level events and WSF junior ranking events, results at local and state title events, rate of improvement throughout the judging year and actions on court – courteous and polite. This award was 25% public vote and 75% High Performance Working Group vote.
Greg Chan was voted the winner with presentations by Ben Houston from the Commonwealth Games Association.
Western Australian players have produced some excellent performances at the 2017 Australian Junior Age Titles held in Geelong Victoria. Our best ever haul includes three wins, one runner-up and two third placings.
