Squash – Day 6 Recap

Monday, 4th March 2019

The final day at squash was met with both excitement and sadness as many teams and their coaches came by to watch the final few matches as well as say goodbye to their new-found friends. One of the many benefits of the Canada Winter Games is the amazing new people you meet and the potential lifelong friendship you make. This once in a lifetime experience that will certainly never be forgotten by the athletes at squash.

In a recap of the day’s matches, it was highlighted by the Team Medal Encounters:
