Pat O – Squash Champion!

The ACT Junior Open 2022 held on the 21-22 May at the Woden Squash Centre in Canberra. I played in 2 age groups (U19 and 17s).

    • U17s, being seeded 2nd in the draw, playing 3 games, with the last 2 games being long five-set games going for 30+ minutes and successfully winning my last game being the U17s final. I finished first in U17s, one seed higher than originally ranked, meaning I am the current U17s reigning ACT Junior Open Champion.

This tournament helped me in a big way as it helps contribute to my national ranking moving me from 8th currently to 5th in Australia, this can also help me improve my chances of joining the VIC state team and possibly national team.
