The Jamaica Squash Association (JSA) is sending a team that will probably be composed of the current male no.1 player Chris Binnie, whose PSA ranking is 79nd position and of Jamaica and Caribbean number two, the 28 years old Lewis Walters, an experienced professional being on the PSA Tour since 2007 and currently at position 189th.
Other likely candidates are former Jamaican junior champion, Julian Morrison, who recently joined both Binnie and Walters on the Professional Squash Association (PSA) circuit and local number three, Bruce Burrowes.
Squash is becoming more and more visible in the Jamaican medias and it is a great news for the universality of this magnificent sport.
Let’s wish this team a big welcome for their first WSF World Team Championships!
