The 2018 Douglas Open Squash Tournament was played over three nights last week. There was a full entry of 32 that included five juniors and two women.
The first two rounds were played best of three games to 11 points. In the first round current island number one Dave Norman played 13 year old Ben Leith and what a game this turned out to be with young Leith showing that he is going to be a player to watch in a couple of years. He displayed some great shots and good retrieving, making Norman work for his win. Unfortunately Norman was carrying an injury coming into the competition and had to pull out without playing another match, leaving the top spot open.
