REPORTS


Calgary Squash Week Preview


The final event on the Challenger Tour this week will be the Calgary CFO Consulting Services PSA Women’s Squash Week, which will take place from Wednesday, March 2 to Sunday, March 6.

The Challenger 20 level tournament is the biggest of the week on the Tour, and will feature ten different nationalities across the 24-strong women’s draw, and with a home favourite leading the way. The top seed for the tournament will be World No.20 Danielle Letourneau, who will be aiming to defend the title that she won two years ago, the last time the event was held.

Australia’s Donna Lobban, Dutch No.1 Milou van der Heijden and Frenchwoman Marie Stephan are among the top eight seeds, alongside the Hong Kong quartet of Tze Lok Ho, Liu Tsz-Ling, Tsz-Wing Tong and Ka Yi Lee.

There will also be a strong British presence at the tournament, with England’s Lily Taylor, Lucy Beecroft, Grace Gear and Millie Tomlinson all in action, along with the Scottish duo of Georgia Adderley and Katriona Allen, who will meet in the first round in Calgary.

Top seed Letourneau will be joined by three other Canadian’s in the draw, including Nikki Todd and wildcard Jana Dweek. Hannah Blatt will be the other home hope in action, and we caught up with her prior to the event starting. She featured in the same tournament in 2019, but admits that is now more committed than she was back then.

“My last PSA event in Calgary was about three years ago when I wasn’t committed to playing professionally and I was just starting off college in Philadelphia,” she explained.

“It was a great experience playing against the high ranked players and now being able to play professionally full time and travel to all these tournaments is such a gift.”

The Canadian, who turned 22 at the start of the year, will be unseeded for the event, and is going into the tournament without expectations. She will face Tessa ter Sluis in the opening round of the competition, and she wants to showcase her abilities on court.

“I am going into this tournament with no expectations on results, but rather to use it to learn and help progress my game,” Blatt admitted.

“I know it won’t be easy matches but I’ve been putting in a lot of training and know it will pay off! I want to show the other girls that I am right there with them and that I will fight for every point.”

The event takes place from Wednesday, March 2 to Sunday, March 6 at the Calgary Winter Club.
