Press Release:– In celebration of Saint Lucia’s 43rd Anniversary of Independence the St. Lucia Squash Association would like to announce the successful completion of the annual Independence Squash Team Tournament played on Saturday February 22, 2022 at the St. Lucia Yacht Club (SLYC) in Rodney Bay.
The squash players were organized into 4 sponsored teams consisting of TEAM-758GeekSquad,
TEAM-Regodolls Spice, TEAM-Caribbean Blue Naturals, and TEAM-Ferrands. The fast-paced and exciting matches played throughout the tournament offered spectators an entertaining afternoon, as 72 games were played in total.
As this was a team tournament, the players were ranked according to their skill level and then competed against players of the same ranking from the other teams. All points scored in a game were added to the respective teams’ final score. So even if a player lost a game, every point scored helped to contribute the final team scores.
The final team score results of the tournament were as follows:
1st place TEAM-Caribbean Blue Naturals 227 points
2nd place TEAM-758GeekSquad 224 points
3rd place TEAM-Ferrands 212 points
4th place TEAM-Regodolls Spice 158 points
