Bermuda retain Challenge Trophy

The Bermuda Squash Challenge took place from November 15-17th on the tiny island paradise in the middle of the Atlantic.

64 Players in 3 Men’s and 3 Ladies Divisions battled over 3 days with the top 4 players in each category gaining points for their nominated teams.

Now in its 5th year the Bermuda Squash Challenge is growing all the time. Conceived by former Bermuda resident Brett Erasmus and New York friend David Uprichard, the Challenge started as a team event between Bermuda and New York.

It has now developed into a regular annual weekend squash break for players from up and down the East Coast and even started to pull players from further afield… this year players from Arizona made 10 hours’ worth of flights to take part!

The Challenge involves 4 games of squash in 3 days, countless hours of socializing up and down the island of Bermuda and finally joining the sell-out crowds here for the Bermuda World Rugby Classic.

Patrick Foster (BERMUDA) bt Nick Kyme (BERMUDA) 15-13, 12-10, 11-7
