axis female squash logoThe inaugural AXIS Pro Women’s Invitational will feature three players currently ranked in the top 35 in the World as well as Bermuda’s own National Coach, former Canadian Champion and World #29 Runa Reta.

Guyana & Caribbean Champion Nicolette Fernandes the World #13 will play in Bermuda, where she will take on Irish Champion and World #33 Aisling Blake as well as top Australian Donna Urquhart the World #25.

The players will play in a round robin format this week with one match taking place each night at the BSRA after the amateurs have completed their games.

First up is Bermuda’s National Coach Runa Reta taking on Australia’s Donna Urquhart in Wednesday’s battle.

Ms. Reta commented “I’m really excited, It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to compete at this level but I’m thrilled to see the girls here in Bermuda and hope to put on a good show”

Each night sees a different pro match up leading to the grand final on Saturday night.

BSRA Director of Squash said “It’s always great to the top players on Island but particularly good at this time as the National teams are training hard for the upcoming Caribbean Championships. The work with these top pro’s will be invaluable in preparing to compete this summer”

This is the first time the challenge has included a pro female event and Axis’s Terry Wood said, “We are really excited to be bringing top class female players to Bermuda. It’s something new that adds an extra special buzz to our event and we look forward to seeing them on court through the week”
