Lakeshore Recreation Member Wins Men’s D Plate Event at Ontario Open Championships

This past weekend Lakeshore Recreation members David Reid and Chris Herbert participated in Squash Ontario’s 2024 Provincial Championships in the Men’s D and B divisions respectively. Both opted to participate in the letter divisions instead of age categories to test their metal against players half their age or younger.

This was David’s first tournament competition for some time and a test to see how he competed against provincially ranked D (3.0 to 3.5 skill rating) level players. David’s goal was to win one game which he exceeded by winning a match and winning the plate event. Congratulations! | Draw sheet.

Chris Herbert, the finalist in the 55+ closed provincials earlier this year, fought hard in the B (4.5 to 5.0 skill level) draw losing in five in the first round and extending the number 2 seed to four games in the consolation round bowing out in the quarter finals. | Draw sheet

Thanks to our friends and family that came to watch and spur us on!
