Squash Canada – CALGARY, AB, March 30, 2016 – For the first time in it’s 82-year history, the Canadian Doubles Squash Championships is set to hit the courts in Calgary. Starting today, hosted by the Glencoe Club in Calgary, over 250 participants from 3 countries will play over 120 matches during the five-day event as competitors vie for the national title in 14 categories.
 
Throughout Canada, five provinces (BC, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec) house all 45 doubles courts in the country. The Canadian Doubles Squash Championships have been played every year since 1934 (with the exception of 1938) and 2016 marks the first time this championship has ever been held in Alberta. With doubles squash rapidly growing in Calgary over the past few years it was a natural fit for the championships to “go west” and it is no surprise that the turnout of local players has been so high. With the likes of new comer and Calgary Winter Club squash pro Ian Power and local favourite, Calgary Flames VP Rollie Cyr in the mix, Western players are ready to make their mark on the Canadian doubles scene.
