Master's Team's event in Moncton

PEI, for the very first time (or , in at least 30 years) sent a team to represent the Province in the annual Canadian Masters Teams event. The team is made up of 4 males (ages 40+,45+,50+, 55+) and 3 females: (40+, 45+, 50+) We played 6 matches and ended up coming 8th. Not too bad for a small province. Hope to be there again next year and maybe improve on our finish and have as much fun playing!

Congrats to Quebec on winning the event. 2nd place was Ontario and 3rd place was Alberta. If we had a Maritime, or Atlantic team, I think we could win this event!!! Keep Improving!

The team included (Left to right): Rob Morrison, Chris Mills, Mary Andrews, Seanna Evans-Renault, Lester Jinks, Robin Boutilier, and BJ MacLean.

JINKS 4-2 AT BRITISH OPEN 

Emma Jinks carried the Canadian and PEI flags admirably last week as she was one of the over 500 top squash players from 40 different countries around the globe who assembled in Birmingham, England for the Annual British Open Junior Squash Championships.

Emma was seeded in the 17-32 group of the girls under 19 event. She won her first match against an Egyptian, tumbled to the plate event after losing her second against one of England’s top players, proceeded to beat two Europeans and a girl from Singapore before finally bowing out 3-1 to Ireland’s top player Sophie O’Rourke.

Most of Emma’s matches were shown live on youtube to the delight of her parents and friends back home in Charlottetown.
