The Guyana Senior Squash team departs today for the 15th Senior Caribbean Squash Championships, set for the Island of St. Vincent from August 13th – 19th.

Defending champions, Trinidad and Tobago are expected to field a strong contingent, while Barbados and Jamaica are also in line to tussle with the Guyanese for this year’s title.

Guyana’s full squad reads: Sunil Seth, Richard Chin, Alex Arjoon, Nyron Joseph, Jason Ray Khalil, Jean Claude Jeffrey, Shomari Wiltshire, Ashley Khalil, Mary Fung-a-Fat, Taylor Fernandes, Larissa Wiltshire, Victoria Arjoon, Ramon Chan-A-Sue, David Fernandes, Alwyn Callender and Juanita Fernandes
