Guyana’s Men’s and Women’s teams will have the opportunity to be crowned as Caribbean Champions when the NLA XXV Senior Caribbean Squash Championships conclude today in Kingstown, St. Vincent.
Tropical Storm Harvey passed the island of St. Vincent by noon yesterday, and Friday’s matches which had been postponed on Thursday night for today, in anticipation of the storm, were back on schedule, albeit with a later starting time.
The Guyana ladies team blew past their counterparts from the Cayman Islands by a 5-0 margin, to set up a virtual ‘final’ with Barbados who beat Trinidad & Tobago 4-1.

Both teams are 19-1 in matches, with Guyana having a game record of 57-5, compared to Barbados’ 57-6.
Guyana’s Men’s team swept Trinidad and Tobago 5-0, to book their place in the final. At press time, the Jamaicans had taken a 3-1 lead in their match with Barbados, to set up a rematch of Thursday’s Group A encounter, which Guyana won 3-2.
