GOULBURN Valley Squash Club masters and juniors have returned home victorious, following a recent event held in Melbourne.

The annual event, hosted by the Victorian Masters Squash Association, saw one master player and one junior player (U23) compete as a team in singles and doubles for the Jim Bristow Cup.

The teams are graded on the standard of the junior and games are timed at 15 minutes per match with four matches played over two days.

Player, Christian Lecompte said, “There was a total of 130 participants over 14 divisions with players from across Melbourne and regional centres such as ours, Traralgon, Leeton, Ballarat, Moe and Geelong.

“Shepparton had teams in division 1, 2, 4 and 5 and came away with runners-up in division 4.”
