JN General Insurance (JNGI) has stepped up its support for local squash and will serve as title sponsors of the 2017 All-Jamaica Squash Championships scheduled for tomorrow to Friday at the Liguanea Club in Kingston.
Expectations are high for the prestigious tournament as it will mark the return of squash queen Karen Anderson and the continuation of the growing rivalry between reigning men’s champion and top seed Chris Binnie and his nemesis, Lewis Walters, currently ranked number two.
With six national and seven regional titles under his belt, Binnie has a date with history as he seeks to extend his streak. However, Walters will be looking to blot Binnie’s record and win his first national title. The arch-rivals and top regional players last went head to head in the finals of the Caribbean Championships in 2016. Binnie emerged as the victor on that occasion but Walters will be going all out to ensure history does not repeat itself.
