    Australian Junior Open 2015 - Results


    In the strongest AJO field for many years there was some great international competition from Malaysia, Singapore and New Zealand.  


    Debutants in the U11 age groups, Joshua Chant and Stephanie Hawkins, competed well in their first major tournament finishing 10th and 6th respectively.  Stephanie also took a major step in winning her first match, both Stephanie and Joshua competed well and are much better for the experience.

    Yowie at Woden


    The elusive Mr and Mrs Yowie "aka Bryson and Kim Hawkins" were spotted at the Woden Squash courts today.  I have never seen a more focussed couple, they didn't even notice me taking this photo.  

    Yowie Squash is a major sponsor of the Vikings Squash club and a major supplier of quality squash equipment and advice in the ACT.  Yowie Squash also sponsors the Vikings Junior Challenge which is on the 22nd to 23rd of August this year.  Yowie has been the major sponsor of the VJC since the start and this will be the fifth year of the tournament which caters for players from beginner to elite levels.
