Zenith Bank Plc. and RemCo Sports Academy (RSA) are hosting the first Squash Open for Senior and Junior pros at Ikoyi Club 1938 today. Approximately 71 squash players will compete in the July 24–28 camp.

Children aged 5-18 may learn squash and enjoy other summer activities at the programme. One-week tournament follows. RSA CEO Rerhe Idonije stated the competition would include 53 men and 18 women. She also offered $1000 to each category winner.

“We’re happy to work up with Zenith Bank, our sponsors, Ikoyi Club 1938, our host, and the Nigeria Squash Federation to make this tournament a reality,” Rerhe added. She noted the tournament’s PSA and WSF recognition (WSF). Rerhe thanked Zenith Bank, Nestle Nigeria, Amstel, MacTay, and Afrione for their wonderful support. She highlighted that any assistance, not only for facilities, would help squash expand in Nigeria and attract great players, promoting the sport countrywide. Zenith Bank Group Managing Director Ebenezer Onyeagwu said the company was eager to support sports development.

We enjoy talent-spotting programmes. “We are thrilled to be part of this event and hope that the attendees will have enormous fun at Ikoyi Club,” Onyeagwu stated. The Ikoyi Club’s squash section will start the camping programme today with experienced trainers.
